You can get to know who owns a PayPal account by using a fake PayPal card, or a dummy credit card, and finding out how the card is used. There are various methods of doing this, which you will learn about as we go through this article.
The easiest way to get a Paypal card number is to sign up for a Paypal account on any of their website. Just sign up with PayPal, and they will supply you with a code you need to insert it on your website to activate your account. Once activated you will be given the option to enter your credit card details to activate your card.
If you are asked to download software for your computer in order to activate your card, there is a very simple way to make sure you are not being asked to download anything that you might be unsure about. This method is called phishing, and it is not recommended as it is highly illegal.
A lot of people who have fallen victim to these phishing scams are actually tricked into buying some software from one of the many different scam websites out there. They are then told that this will help them find out who the owner of the account is, and will give them access to all of the card holder's information. Unfortunately, most people do not know the scam sites exist, and they end up losing money and identity.
Another way of knowing if you are being asked to download software to activate your Paypal card is to use an authentic Paypal support site. If you see the “help me activate my account” link at the bottom of the page, chances are good that the website is legitimate and that your account is secure. PayPal will then ask you a few questions to ensure that you are completely certain that you are dealing with a legitimate website.
Finally, if you see a sign up box at the bottom of the page that says “click here to activate my account”, you should not be encouraged to fill this out. A legitimate PayPal site will ask you to complete a form at the bottom of the page.
You do not need to worry about your identity being stolen by using a paid site to get a PayPal card. These are usually fake sites that are trying to steal your personal details and money.
The way to really get a Paypal card number is to use a genuine Paypal account as described above. If you do find that you have to use a website that asks for your credit card details, you should then visit the PayPal website to verify that your account is legitimate.
