How can I open a new PayPal account when mine was blocked because someone else tried to hack into it?

Earlier this year I went to use PayPal and was blocked. After some sleuthing, I learned that PayPal had detected that someone was trying to hack into my account, so they closed it. Many emails and phone calls later, I was told that I would NEVER be able to open a new account, even with a new credit card and bank account attached to it, even though they assured me that *I* was not the one who caused the problem. So what can I do? There are occasionally things I want to do and PayPal is the only way to do them (and not just as a guest).
