Hi Navasmario28-

If you are being asked for that information as part of the registration process, it is a requirement.

Thanks,
PayPal Jason

Typical of paypal. Thats not really an answer you know.

Imagine a person is already registered with paypal, and they want a paypal debit card and they dont have an SSN.............

Many people dont have an SSN like students (but students do have a valid visa to be here...)

So paypal...answer the question properly: how can a perosn get a paypal debit card if they dont have an SSN?

Be aware that an american is NOT legally required to give it to to you anyway according to the privacy act of 1974.

You should have visited the website and read the requirements first. I almost did the same thing, but since I don't like wasting money--and especially since Paypal has been known to do some crazy things to "keep" people's money--I spent the 2 minutes reading he rules.
It clearly states that you must provide the following in order to upload money from a prepaid Paypal cash card:
1. SSN
2. Proof of residence
3. Photo ID

The rules have changed, and are on the website, "federal regulations require that we collect specific information to verify your identity."

Now, what you need to do is--go through the process of getting a refund for that cash card.
Like the above info--the procedure is clearly stated step-by-step on their website.

It would have taken less time to research the process than going through the crap you're now in.
Next time--do your homework.

To you fools complaining about your money being "stolen" from paypal. Do you not realize that with a paypal card it also means you have a paypal account and there are other ways of retrieving your money from your paypal account? You can also have it transferred to a bank account, a netspend account, you can also have them mail you a check so to the guy complaining that paypal "stole his 100 dollars" or the guy that "burnt 40 dollars" log on to your paypal account and get your money. If you choose not to, then that is your own stupidity not paypals.

Maybe you should actually read through the entire complaints before commenting.
While some of these people should have done their homework BEFORE rushing out and buying prepaid cards--they ARE stuck in that vacuum of "Paypal has their money."

If they purchased a pre-paid card at a store, tried to load it to Paypal, couldn't because of an issue with their account (no SSN on file, etc)--then their money is temporarily unavailable to them.

They cannot simply transfer it back, as it never went into their account to begin with.

How about this.....just a suggestion. STOP BEING AN INTERNET TROLL.
This is a forum in which people are seeking help and/or answers.
They are already upset.
If your're going to come on here are start calling people stupid, then at least have the humility to give them some constructive advice.
Oh, wait-----someone without humility and calling people stupid wouldn't do that.
Nevermind......go back to your rock under the bridge and scare little kids....troll.
