I had to give them mine in order to withdraw more than $500 of payments for selling collectables through a non-ebay site, rather than wait months with no complaints. Then when buyers paid me as a gift instead of buying paypal's buyer protection and I received thousands of dollars from many people in short order, they made me give them everything: call them from landline in area, DC #s for every sale, link to website I was selling from, social security number, scan of my government photo ID, proof of address, and hours of phone calls with CSRs, and more that I don't remember the details of. That was just to get them to unfreeze the account and let me access my $2700 balance that had only been there a couple days. When I cleared the balance out to my bank account immediately after, they put a limitation on my account for all future transactions. After no activity for 6 months following that, they lifted it.

paypal recently closed my account after forever , never had any problems with , ONLY thing i can think of is PAYPAL has a class action lawsuit against it for "kidnapping" peoples monies and not allowing access to funds for periods of time , only thing i can think of is by eliminating as many accounts as it can now the less monies it has to pay people back , even starting new account would make you ineligible to receive monies from lawsuit because it is new account

doesnt quite work like that. you did something to trigger questionable activity or your account went negative with the balance.
