They have been holding $5408.54 of mine since June 28th, 2020. This is my unemployment money with the ONLY depositor being the State of Arizona. I even recieve an email from the account review department advising me I could withdraw my funds since it had been 182 days. Conveniently, 4 days before the 180 mark they placed another limitation on my account. I've spoke to 6 diff supervisors, had 3 escalated account review requests sent, and have heard nothing from them. I've also filed a legal claim using Fairshake.com which was super easy to do. Just tell them your situation, they review 8t, and if approved file all paperwork for you, and send it to PayPal. They do charge 10% of your claim ($ your paid if you win), but make sure you ask for pain and suffering for financial burden as a direct result of them holding your money. Also ask for the interest that PayPal has collected on your money, since they only made that interest by wrongfully holding your money. Also submit a complaint with your States Attorney general and file a complaint with the BBB. Just make sure you file the proper complaint. This should ensure you getting your money back. Currently, my claim is in negotiations with PayPal. I will update everyone once I have more info. Hope this helps.

@Plsmith5150 If you have been told your Paypal account has been permanently limited then Paypal holds any funds for 180 days as that is the same time frame that buyers have to open paypal disputes. If no disputes are opened against you in 180 days then 'normally' you are allowed to withdraw the funds as long as you are over 18, the account is in your legal name and registered in the country where you reside. Sometimes they confiscate funds under this policy. https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full?locale.x=en_US#actions Paypal also may request further documentation from you before you can withdraw those funds. Your best bet is to wait until the phones are back up and running and then phone customer services so that you can speak to an agent. Then they can help advise on how you can withdraw the funds if and when you are allowed to do so. OR ........ Live chat is randomly available. You can send them a message. Or have you considered contacting Customer Service via Facebook or Twitter? You can send them a personal message from their facebook or twitter pages. It's: https://www.facebook.com/PayPal and @AskPayPal for Twitter.
