The issue in GetHuman1674194's own words
For at least a couple years someone in the UK has been using my personal email address. When I first became aware of this I tried to reach out to PayPal to no avail. I was told in the end that I don't "own" my email address even though I can prove it's mine via any verification they would like. I just want to secure MY email address as the PayPal account set up under it is NOT mine and I believe the person is doing illegal things and don't want my email address associated with that. Again, I can verify I am the valid owner of the email address I'm providing. Please help restore my faith in PayPal. My primary PayPal account is under my family email address and I never set one up under my personal email address: *****@***.com. Please HELP. This is very frustrating knowing my email is being misused.
