Con-fused! And Paypal is making me angry...

Previous Entry Con-fused! And Paypal is making me angry... Mar. 6th, 2008 @ 03:47 pm Next Entry
First things first! Paypal has limited my account because I made a certain amount of money, and they asked me for my info, seem something that shouldn't be too hard to do, right?

I've sent them my ID card and other info in a file... three days passed, I was still being limited, I FAXED them, nothing happened, I EMAILED them NOTHING happened! What the? How long does it take for Paypal to deal with this stuff? And they haven't even replied to my email!

So I phoned them again, it appears the name on my bank account if different from my ID by ONE LETTER, which is enough to refuse all the info... I went to the bank and now I have to wait until I get a letter from the back with that information...



And I just realized I don't have a passport, since the place where I get them is next to the doctor's office where I have an appointment for tomorrow..

With luck I'll finally know what the hell is wrong with my digestive system, and I'll know if I'll get a passport in time for whatever US con I plan to go to!


Which brings to my "Con-fusion", which my PC dying, the site finally going up I haven't really done anything yet to get to San Diego Comic Con...
Since I haven't actually done anything yet, I might as well re-evaluate my plan, because I've met more artists online and maybe, just maybe, SDCC is not the con I want to go to?

I've always decided which UK convention to go to by looking at the guest list, but the US lists never seem to be complete! I KNOW people that will be attending certain cons who are not on the list!

So... I know several of the people I want to meet actually read my journal, which kinda freaks me out, so what are your con schedules?^_^;

I think it's still likely I'll either go to either Mocca or SDCC, or maybe SPX, Staple (which I just missed), or something like that?

San Diego has a TWENTY HOUR flight... The sheer thought of it makes me shiver,  do I even have something to keep be distracted for that long? And Mocca is New York.... Which terrifies me! And I feel like an idiot because I know several New Yorks and as far as I know they don't get mugged or shot at a daily basis....

I just don't know, I want to go to a US con, but I don't know which anymore... UK is close and I can go there very easily and cheaply, but this is likely to be the only US con I'll go to in a VERY LONG time! I don't even know when I could afford a second trip, just the plane ticket costs more than the total cost of a UK con to me! D:

can say enough great things about MoCCA - well worth hitting if you can make it. How'd you travel to the thing last year without a passport??

Don't worry I sometimes forget my negatives too!

Since we're all part of the EU, we don't need a passport to go from one country to another, just some ID will do! :3

Are you sure? its not the EU that allows free travel its the Schengen Agreement which Ireland and the UK are not members of. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schengen_Agreement

I go to germany and spain alot and I need a passport to travel there - they don't stamp it but they do check it. I don't need any id to travel to the UK but thats due to ireland and the uk have a free travel zone

I went to the UK three times last year and all I brought was my ID? Either way, I should have a passport by the UK thing, since the new process is very quick?

Best of luck, anything here like that takes a long time to do. Just to do the paperwork my state id took a day. Not exactly sure of why they didn't send me my id. When I complained about them not sending me it they told me I have to pay another 20 bucks just to get it. This is after I had paid for it and all.
