Couldn’t close paypal account because it is limited

For some unknown reason, Paypal put my account in Limited Status and has demanded 3 forms of identification, which I refused to submit. My account says they retrieved money paid to the ITunes Store for some albums I downloaded and my account has a positive balance. I contacted the ITunes store and they said no such thing ever happened and I changed my payment method to AMEX and there is no further problem there. I then tried to cancel my Paypal account and they will not cancel it because it is in limited status. I asked for the evidence they must have that I am not who I say I am and received no reply. I then told them I have no problem leaving the account in limbo but I want no further communication with them. I know this is risky because they have my bank account information but I just want to be rid of them.
