Hello Jon, If Paypal's embedded security flags and blocks a transaction, does it not seem rational that a human from Paypal would follow up to determine whether or not the blocking is reasonable and valid? Would it make sense for a Paypal security rep to reach out to the person attempting the transaction to ask questions and /or explain what is going on? Please be specific. It is only reasonable that you explain exactly why you would block a transaction - particularly one that my (or anyone's) credit card company approves as valid. Thank you. Jackie

Hello, I established a paypal account on Monday, March 4 and tried to make a payment. Over three days, I continued to get a notice that it could not be done at this time. After several calls to paypal, I was told the payment was flagged as a security risk. I spoke with my credit card company (as the payments will come from there) and was told that they approved the transaction. Nobody at paypal could tell me why the transaction was flagged and I was told there is no way to have the risk removed. This is significant. Additionally, today I attempted to make a donation through fundrazr (which uses paypal) and even though I attempted to make the payment with the same credit card that I have used on that site in the past - it was rejected! Now it appears that paypal has blocked a credit card for online payments that I have used since 1997. Has anyone else had this experience and discovered a way to resolve it? Thank you.
