I'm a recent victim. I've done nothing wrong. Same methods as always. I was recently asked to send proof. I did. At first, I checked to see if the logo and everything were the same, and it wasn't fraud. After their "review," I'm permanently "limited." I was shocked! All the email said is that my account is at risk. To whom? THEM?? In the last year and a half, I have been quite an increase in gaining money from mystery shops that pay only with PayPal. Only. I don't sell. Maybe they think it's too high an increase; I don't know. But I have some payments coming soon that I need. They certainly can not hold them! I'm going to contact the companies sending them, and try to have them stopped before they're sent, if it's not too late. I really was counting on that money! I thought this was PayPal's fault anyway. I changed my phone number recently. I called to have it changed because I messed up and forgot about the two-step verification. The CS could NOT change my new number on my account. The one I used for mystery shops. I was told I had to start a new one. I then had to edit ALL of my mystery shopping companies, and there are many. AND, other places that use PayPal for payment. That was a pain, only to be told I'm banned now. Sickening!
I do agree that someone needs to file a lawsuit. I know many companies are being hit by lawsuits about every little thing: extra sugar in cereal, etc, so this is a major thing in comparison.
I don't blame you. I would scrap them. There are other money sending alternatives. My problem is that nearly all of the mystery shopping companies pay only through PayPal, which sucks. I think I have something figured out, but won't say here in this forum. Too many eyes everywhere. 👀👀
Hi , Just got my account canceled suddenly without any action in my account then adding one more email address to be used as second address. Automatically this sign shows up and cant get any answer from help center either. This is the message You can no longer use PayPal After a review, we decided to permanently limit your account as we found potential risk associated with it. You'll not be able to conduct any further business using PayPal. Based on this decision, if applicable, you are no longer eligible for PayPal Seller Protection as per our User Agreement. This will apply to all existing and future cases you receive. Any bank or credit card information that's linked to your PayPal account cannot be removed nor can it be added to another account. You can still log in and see your account information but you can't send or receive money. Thanks for any help seems that mine is one similar case.Thanks
