PayPal is demanding I pay someone else’s debt

I opened a PayPal account about a month ago, no I need to tell you I am 50 years old and got my first computer about 4 to 5 years ago.
Now I opened this PayPal account because someone had given me a EBay gift certificate and as we all know or should know is You need a payPal account to use a gift certificate. So time goes I use PayPal buy this and That for about a month bought a few things used PayPal and all good.
Well that didn’t last long on the 1st of March I go to my PayPal account to pay for an eBay purchase and it says that my account is restricted and I need to call the resolution dept to rectify the problem. now I don’t know about other resolution departments because I pride myself in paying the bills etc. So the gentleman on the phone tells me that my account has been linked to another account in 1998 or there about. Now I tell the man well that can’t be I just started using the Internet and a computer 4 or 5 years ago. Ohh he say’s well I will put it in as a Identity theft, well it happens that in 1990 and again in 2000 I did indeed have to file a police report because someone had used my social security number and name to purchase something anyway gave him the police report number and all he said they would contact me in 24 to 72 hours.
So keep in mind I still have a purchase I need to take care of so contact the seller and explain they are very understanding etc. well 5 days go by and still no word from PayPal .
On the sixth day I call them back and am told that the case has been closed and resolved I tell the man great so I can now use the account and pay for my purchases ? He then asks me how I would like to take care of my outstanding balance, I say there shouldn’t be any. He then begins to tell me about 14 chargeback and that they need to be settled before I can use my account again…Now by this time I am a little concerned because I haven’t made 14 transaction and so I inquire what they are for, the litany of things I have no Idea are and then the amount of over 2000.00 I am calm an state those are not mine they are from the fraud account that was linked to mine, he agrees and says that the investigation was finished and it was determined that they were indeed mine………..
When the initial shock was over I asked to speak with a supervisor and was told he was the supervisor and that until this debt was paid my account would be limited. I am at a loss for words that are civil for this posting but let it be known that very sailor in the world would have blushed for the language I used .
So it’s been about a week and I still don’t know what to do and am trying to gather info to fight this. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Be aware for PayPal… this company is completely incorrect! They joke with their own money back policy… they instruct buyers to send the items back and afterwards they don’t refund as promised. They play together with the Chinese cheaters. BE CAREFUL YOUR MONEY IS NOT SAFE AT ALL AND THE MONEY BACK WARRANTY IS A TOTAL LIE!

    The fact that you claim that you never used your PayPal account nor had one, is very easy to prove. The fact that PayPal was the entity that charged the buyer’s credit card not you. PayPal has to establish -Proof of debt owed- That means they have to go into each chargeback and see where they item was purchased, if anyone logged into that PayPal account and withdrew the funds. IIt was PayPal’s responsibility to confirm every single piece of information to establish that was you that took the money from the sales. That means IP logins have to match the general area of where you live, etc. The fact that they dont care if it wasnt you. they are trying to get you to pay for their debt and their stupdity.
