    I'm having trouble with Paypal- again. I need to pay for an item, but I can't log into my Paypal account. I've changed my password three times, but I still can't log in. I called the phone number they have listed but all I get is recording which tells me to go back to the website. I sent an email six days ago and have not received a reply. What can I do? This buyer only accepts Paypal and has not replied to the emails sent to her.

    NO help here, I've used them for years and never a bit if trouble. But DON'T log in from an email, it may be a bogus copycat website designed to steal your info...

    If you don't already have money in that account you need to use for this item, you could open another account or, if the seller has a business account, you could pay by credit/debit card through paypal but without using your account.

    Have you tried the "I forgot my password" routine?

    This information if from the Pay Pal web site. Is it the number you are using?
    I think this ones gives you live help instead of answering electronics.

    Best wishes, Pay Pal is great, but frustrating to the ninth degree.

    PayPal Customer Service Agents are available to help you during the following times:

    4:00 AM PST to 10:00 PM PST Monday through Friday
    6:00 AM PST to 8:00 PM PST on Saturday and Sunday

    Call us at: 1-402-935-2050 (a U.S. telephone number)

    The 402 number listed above takes you to a calling center in Bellevue NE (right next to Omaha.. home of Offit AFB). My daughter's SO works there as an IT tech... but there are dozens (if not more) who work there in customer service... I am guessing?? that the 800 numbers connect you to them as well.

    Hope you get it figured out! I have never had a problem with Paypal...
