The issue in GetHuman1149978's own words
I was trying to use the PayPal account and it insisted that they send a TEXT or telephone a telephone number not in service for TEN YEARS and would not let me change the number until they contacted me AT THE DEFUNCT TELEPHONE NUMBER. ... I cannot cancel or even use my account because the telephone number on Paypal has not been my number for * years. The site keeps insisting it wants to call me at the old number and no where else. I HATE PayPal and want to CANCEL. My email is *****@***.com. My cell phone does NOT ACCEPT TEXT MESSAGES. You must call the landline (***) ***-**** nor EMAIL me.
This was especially frustrating since I have tried for YEARS to cancel this ******* account WHICH I WAS SO STUPID TO EVER HAVE OPENED.
CANCEL THIS ******* ACCOUNT FOR KHONEYCUTT**@EARTHLINK.NET
YOU HAVE HAD ME LISTED AS A SO-CALLED CUSTOMER FOR OVER TEN YEARS.
I have tried EVERYTHING I could find on the web. I do NOT have a twitter, facebook, or any other such garbage accounts.
