Top Tip from another customer
If you're having issues with a password, try resetting it using your email address (be sure to use the correct spelling). Click "Forgot Password" under the login, then follow the prompt. You should have the option to reset with your phone number.
The issue in GetHuman-zero_cap's own words
I am not able to login to my paypal**I have been a long time user. I just recently received at my address, mail in another name not associated with me. One item I did order, the other I did NOT, but the name of the individual is not know to me. A total stranger. The package was NOT in my name, but the content of one was the item I ordered.**I think my account may have been compromised?

Yes, I have resolved my issue. I called customer service and they sent me a password reset. I don't know why my email was not being found by paypal, but the customer service rep who helped me, was able to remedy this, and my email is again usable for my account.
