Transfer Requires Read

I have a lead that is created through a Salesforce Site, so that the owner of the lead is the Site Guest User. When I try to convert the lead from a regular user, I get the error:


Transfer Requires Read: The new owner must have "Read" permissions on this type of record.


I'm using my own user when I'm trying to convert the lead, and my user definitely has Read access to Leads. Not really sure what is going on since the error is so vague. Any insights would be most appreciated.


go to sites and check the guestuser profile permissions once.


It might be referring to Read on Account, Contact, and Opportunity as you can't merge into those records without Read access.


I'm surprised it didn't require Edit on all 3.
