I hope everyone truly knows why paypal is worse than Comcast and how they conduct business now? They weren't making a profit. People weren't using their services as much. So they add in all these vague arbitrary rules, ban people for nothing illegal (I have proof I did NOTHING illegal), but then start using terms such as "high risk customer" or other stupid terminology to hold people's money. And for a company to not explain why you were banned? It's like the old days when the mafia controlled gambling casinos. They will not let you just unlink your bank account or card, close your account and still monitor you while you can't even use their services. To get them off your **bleep**, go to your bank, get a new account and debit card and credit card associated with the NEW account. Leave your other account open with just enough money to have one open (depends on bank) or close it all together. That might affect your credit more. Opening a new account I dropped like 3 points. That's it. Either transfer all your money to the new account and close the linked one or leave it open with $50. Nothings linked but an account that is never used. **bleep** you paypal. Spying, lying, extorting, and will be filling bankruptcy IF PEOPLE STOP USING THEIR SERVICES. DO NOT LINK ANYTHING. THEY STILL SPY ON YOU EVEN AFTER BEING BANNED. Find another company. And if certain places only allow paypal, they just lost a sale. I still buy on ebay...etc. Setup extra security on your new account as well. I wouldn't put it past them to be calling my bank phishing for answers. Evil company.

My account has been limited for over 3 years and despite following all the procedures, provided proof of identity and proof of residency, my account is still limited to this day, 2021. I haven’t received any contact, nothing in the resolution center and no emails regarding the situation. Im very disappointed in the customer response team since i haven't gotten any service despite my many emails and feedbacks. Kindly help me resolve this once and for all so i can get my money and close the account permanently.

 

whatdo i di?

No one is going to review your account and case if you do not initiate a legal enquiry. Just approach any free legal clinic or get a free consultation with a civil lawyer to find out how to initiate the process, assuming you have money taken away from you. 

Once your account is suspended for certain User Agreement violation, none of the customer service officers will be able to open the case again. They may promise you a reply but that seems to always eventuate in non-response.

I have sent head office a final letter before court. Nobody has replied. It’s terrible going through this when no violations have been committed. I have proved to them I was sabotaged. PayPal need to act in this instead of ignoring

Contact the "Consumer Financial Protection Bureau" (CFPB)..go on their website and you can file a complaint, its a government owned company so they HAVE to answer you (they usually answer in a week CFPB said, I got an answer back in 2days). I filed a complaint, paypal got back to me in 2 days like I had said (you can check the status of your complaint online too), but all they said was they re-reviewed my account and decided its still high risk. Which is ridiculous! I'm a stay at home mom, who's charges are for target, amazon..etc. There's absolutely no reason for this. I did nothing wrong.

Can I get my money early if it's held for 180days when my PayPal account was in good standing prior to it being permanently limited, I was never selling or using my PayPal account as a seller, it's simply unjustified

Really because you make more sales they lock your account this is for sure why mine has gotten locked, I call customer service and after going back and forth for an hour she just said Ill be honest I dont think you will be able to use pay pal anymore because I told her my original accounts email I used was hacked and if I could recieve the message they send they dont know what to do. Seems crazy to lock accounts when they bring in more sales for themselves and give paypal money, they honestly just could need funds more than in the past and sold more.

Hi @Swagby44
There are some factors that can influence your account, the country you live in, if your biz is registered and if you pay tax.
Based on what I know there are countries which are limited in receiving funds and this is the cause of local government laws, that is why I think paypal does not want to process money for accounts in such countries.
The local laws in Moldova where I live are afraid of people who can get rich, because the more money you make the more power you have and can influence later the politics using those money or other things which money can buy.
Try maybe offer crypto to your customers, this is for sure the future of money processors.
This is just a opinion of a user.
