Seemingly because I crossed a threshold in sales quantity and revenue, I got an email from PayPal asking for one of these:
- Your Social Security number
- Your Individual Tax Identification Number
- Your Employer Identification Number
I’m not from the US. I don’t live in the US. I don’t run my business in the US (although I have some sales to the US).
I logged into PayPal, and receive another request to do this. There’s a link with more info, but the link is broken…
I searched the web for more info, and could only find poisonous discussions on poisonous forums.
Has anyone here who runs a non-US company and uses PayPal as a payment alternative faced this? If so, was it safe to ignore this strange request?
