I've had a paypal account for 16 years, linked to the same checking account for 16 years. No problems purchasing online and paying for many items on ebay for 16 years. I make ONE charge dispute on my account from microsoft for $10.95 and the next week my account gets limited. I'm asked to upload a copy of my checking account, which I have done twice now in the past 2 weeks. My name, account number and address are the same on my checking account as on record with paypal. I've yet to receive any response to emails or second bank statement upload from a week ago. The only response from customer service has been automated email messages with help information on account limitation. It almost appears that my account restriction is a retaliation for having the audacity to dispute a charge on my account. Everyone should keep this in mind and spread the word. The Paypal purchase protection is a ONE time deal. Dispute a charge and you're account is shut off. Period. Paypal is either understaffed to properly resolve account issues or they simply don't care.
