16K IS SERIOUS FUNDS I ONLY REQUSTED MY LITTLE 228 POUNDS FROM EM AND THAT WAS FOR SOME STUFF I SOLD ON EBAY

its going to be bumpy road from now on. They will ask all sort of stuff but wont release your money. They have right to hold your money for 6 months (according to them).

Just go through the link i gave you, will find proper help there.

SOON AS I GET MY MONEY THE FIRST THING IL DO IS TO CLOSE PAYPAL EVEN IF IT COSTS TO CLOSE THE ACCOUNT

Best thing to do is wait,if its a new paypal account or the first time you have withdrew a large sum of money this is normal for them to protect themselves. Out of interest was it something you sold on ebay?
Also when they sort it out for you use some of the funds to get a keyboard that works without the CAPS LOCK on all the time.......lol

Is your account verified? Perhaps they requested the I.D etc to verify who you are?
(and your caps lock button seems to be stuck on)

froze mine a few years back with £800 in it. Had to wait 180 days to withdraw it as I couldnt provide evidence of purchase of the items I sold on ebay (my dvd collection!).

Never hold a paypal balance!
