Does Paypal ask you to confirm your credit/debit card?

I got a message on my PayPal account after I logged in.

When I click the link, it leads me to the details of my Alrajhi debit card which I use to withdraw my money to. Yet, when I confirm, it says the details are wrong.

Actually, I have confirmed my PayPal account with my credit card many years ago when I activated my PayPal account. So I am not sure why PayPal is asking again.

Do you get this same message from PayPal? I would like to get the withdrawal limit lifted if I can. Right now, I have to withdraw in batches of USD500 each time. Every time I withdraw, I need to pay USD5. So, if I can withdraw, say USD5,000 (LOL, I am just dreaming ok?) each time, I will save a lot of USD5.

    i have a similar situation but it was directly from PayPal asking me to confirm some personal details. I mailed them back but they didn’t reply, so it sounds kinda fishy.

    just check my pay pal account verified with Tune Card.

    better check/email the CS to make sure. Nowadays there are a lot /spammer/trick/phishing site that want to steal your id and password.

    Weird lah. It is not an email but right on my Paypal dashboard. I already confirmed my account long time ago with my credit card. Now, I am withdrawing with a debit card. Never mind, I will just ignore it and see.

    what i know, sometimes paypal did something like that..

    I see it on my dashboard too. When I click, it asked me to verify my 2nd credit card. The limits remain the same $500. I think if you have 2 or 3 cards with them but only verify one then the message pops up. I have a verified card so I ignored it once and after a while it went away. Not sure why but its recently come back.

    before that, i also have the same problem like you. But its fine now.


    (November 14, 2008 - 2:38 pm)

    it just fine with me. Maybe you need to submit new credit card. Did your card expired?


    (November 17, 2008 - 5:43 pm)

    Sounds like a scam to me. Be sure not to click the link directly or else, your account might get hack or something. Just log in to and check from there…

    just be careful and better you ask paypal about that. Maybe you don’t know something about that..

    Hey, be aware of those “paypal” e-mails.

    I got similar e-mails and PayPal officials said to watch out for the SPOOF e-mails.

    PayPal (like other reputable companies) never ask by e-mail to update your account via a link they include in their message, or to send them any info directly via e-mail, not to mention sending them your password.

    If anybody asks for that, it’s not officially, you heard me?

    PayPal locked the account out of nowhere, now asking for credit check, bank statement, utility bill, photo id, and more! 9/10 of the people who work there are inconsiderate and condescending. I was researching PayPal alternatives and found that I can use ProPay on eBay, but as I went to sign up, I found that eBay locked my account until PayPal gets what they want. So actually there is no alternative to PayPal because if you don’t agree with what they want, they will lock your entire business, eBay and all.

    Maybe you haven’t had issues with PayPal. Maybe you don’t care about giving your personal information to the world risking identity theft and a potentially totalitarian state. But I assure you, eventually they will lock your account too and ask for the same private information.

    PayPal does not even have a brick and mortar building for me to walk into, why in the world is my photo id necessary? Oh yeah, and today the representative called PayPal a “financial institution” – F that, in my eyes they are just a WEBSITE, not a BANK.
