That's an error I've never seen or heard of before! Has anyone else seen the same error when trying to pay you? Has your friend seen that on anyone else's PayPal.me link? Is the error happening upon loading the link initially or when trying to send the payment, or at some other point in the process? If your friend clears the cookies and cache in their browser and restarts it, does the problem persist?
