Permanent Limitation on my account

Hiya

 

A permanent limitation of my account has been placed.

 

However, I have quite a lot of money in there. When they say "Any money in your balance will be held for 180 days, after which we'll send you an email with instructions on how to transfer your money.", do I need to provide any additional information in order to access the money? Thanks

No, after 180 days they will email you and allow you to withdraw it probably to any linked bank account.

Re: Permanent Limitation on my account

They did the same thing to me try filing a complaint with the ftc for unfair and deceptive business practices Also check your state laws 180 days holding your money is illegal in 48 states and no matter what they say there policy is it does not supersede the law what they are realy doing is embezzlement. They recently lost a class action lawsuit in California for doing this to thousands of people i say sue the thieves their just collecting onterest on our money and dont listen to dumb people who obviously work for paypal there just giving you paypals policys which are well outright illegal

Re: Permanent Limitation on my account

I am located in the UK. Laws are different here but looking into my options. I just think its really sad that they have the right to terminate an account without explanations. I am taking it upon myself to look into this. I have gone through my last 24 months activity and i see nothing. I am not a seller, all i have done is purchased a cover for an I phone transferred money to my friend, and use Paypal on a restaurant App paying the bill??

Its so frustrating.Been mailing them for a week and had zero replies

I urge you to do that. I don't think they have the right. But it appears PayPal thinks they do it is up to us to show them they can not. Check the laws in uk there is a woman in the uk on youtube who has lots of resources youtube search paypal limitations. You would find her video and links in it immensely usefull in the UK

Re: Permanent Limitation on my account

Mine to. After 20 years of being with them!!!! Not sold anything on there for over two years and the only activity being burying food and drink via Wetherspoons APP. Is that wrong? It must be as they close my account. 

Tip 

don’t order cider on the APP 

 

Thanks PayPal for all the years. I’d have a drink for you but I can no longer order a pint!!!!
