paypal shitty as usual 

paypal continues to be utter shite and has locked me out of my account after I attempted to change my name. in their email confirming my ID they said I cannot use my account any more and would need to sign up for a new account with a new email address, the email also states I should be able to remove financial details from my account but after attempting to remove my bank account from it, it won't let me. so now I am completely locked out of using paypal

to add to the damage, they changed my account name to my full deadname that was on the ID that I sent them to prove the name change.

update on this: I ended up phoning paypal to get them to remove my bank account, they finally removed it. I have now signed up for a new paypal account with my new name and unfortunately I still could not link my bank account because it says it has been linked too many times, even though it has only been linked once. I have successfully managed to add my debit card to the new account though so that's a win in my book.

my new paypal address is paypal@violet.pm

@Violet Fluff. I'm sorry you're dealing with that crap, I hope you can maybe fix this reaching out to their support but... It's paypal so not expecting a miracle there...

@Violet Yep, that’s PayPal. They fuckin’ suck. :>

Sorry I don’t have anything productive to add here. They’re just fuckers when it comes to trans name changes and no one I’ve known who has tried has ever succeeded.

@Violet you can always attack them via GDPR, I haven't tried this aganist PayPal though
