So woke up this morning and Paypal had just banned my account with no reason whatsoever. I only receive funds from 3 clients who I have been working with for a few years now. My account is already verified with my ID and utilities bill. Am a freelance so I depend on it. So it's a case of ' hey, we think you did something wrong, we are not going to tell you what but are banning you permanently and keeping your money for 6 months'. F piss of shit of a company.

    The last line of their email is obviously a lie. They regret nothing.

    Sounds like an interest-free loan for them.
    Screw PayPal.

    Fuck Paypal. That’s one of the reasons I refuse to use those cunts unless absolutely necessary. Do you send money overseas or get paid often from overseas, because that whole US anti terrorism money bullshit causes this kind of thing all the time.

    @Root imagine the interest/returns they make doing that.
    “Oh shit we’re getting a bit lean. Better lockup several hundreds of thousands of accounts for ‘suspicious purposes’ for a few months”

    If crypto becomes mainstream, it will be as a way to replace PayPal. Not as a standalone currency, but a way to transfer "real" currency without fuckery like this.

    @snaz it really already is. Most people have heard of bitcoin and maybe even ethereum, and there are a lot of businesses that accept crypto, too.

    Besides, you can also use it to transfer huge amounts of money within a few minutes, for tiny fees (fraction of a percent, or as little as a few cents depending on method), and you avoid the endless questions and red tape.

    All of this means PayPal will be irrelevant, and they know it. So they're probably lobbying the SEC, etc. for increased regulations on crypto. Yet again, corruption and greed work to destroy good things.

    @Root Here in Aus the banks are using Osko payments too. It takes like 7sec to receive money.. super handy. No need for Paypal unless you need “buyer protection” 😂

    On the transaction part, the fees are really low, but if you want to use crypto to buy money, the exchanges fees are higher :/

    Just in case you haven’t checked - is it definitely from PayPal?

    Their security isn’t that great too,I got a mail stating that my account was logged on in a device from a different country compared to where I reside currently ,well it’s not like I had any money in my account but still it isn’t safe.

    @SuwakoMmh Depends on the exchange. The fees can still be quite low.

    Still better than people getting banned for no reason and their money is being held for 6 months(!) until they can get it back... I have a screenshot somewhere, online friend got that...

    @badcopnodonuts I get paid frequently from overseas. But still, if they don't want me on their platform, give me my money n tell me to F off. It's 1700$ so not a small amount to keep for 6 months!

    @UnicornPoo it is from PayPal. Got a very big banner on logging into my account. Tried withdrawal fails too.

    @haze They say their policy is to not let you know the reason. Very convenient right?

    @Keylan You can bet on that. I can hear them laughing

    @SukMikeHok Am wondering, for people in US, are they protected from such fuckery?

    @heyheni Yah. 6 months
  • 0
    @Root Like seriously. Why 6 months? 30 days would have been reasonable.
