    Hey all, sorry didnt know a better place to place this thread (so pls feel free to move it)

    Anyways I signed up a paypal account for someone yesterday, went to login to it today as linking it in with their website and i get this error

    "This account has been permanently locked with a $0.00 USD balance. All information associated with this account has been blocked from the PayPal system and cannot be registered with another account."

    No idea why and I haven't touched it. Paypal Help is useless and has nothing regarding why it is like this or how to sort it.

    Anyone have any ideas at all?

    Nope never had mine locked.

    I would phone them, as it can take anything from a few mins to a few days to get a reply. Im still waiting for paypal to reply to one of mine 6 months ago :p

    Yeah, I'd change your PayPal password and do a malware scan as soon as possible if I were you. Looks like something suspicious is going on...
