Paypal Abuse.

  • Question
  • Updated 4 years ago
I have 2 paypal accounts , premier and personal and both have been limited by paypal team saying "there is high risk involved or unusual activity." I recently sold a laptop and 2 iphones to a wholeseller in Turkey. I sell via google base ads.
He paid me on my 1st account - premier account. I share this account with my ex wife so I don't prefer to add a bank account to it. Now, I sent the payment to my 2nd account to which I simply added a new bank account and withdrew funds.
After 24 hours paypal limited both my accounts. Withheld the payments and now I cannot ship the items because we need to attach a payment reciept with the customs declaration forms to prove that it is a commercial shipment.. So, now paypal won't refund the buyer, neither allow me to access funds. Paypal added negative balance to my 2nd account as curency conversion fee!!! a conversion that never took place because it witheld the amount before sending to my bank. The buyer will start a dispute soon and I did nothing wrong. did I? is that an offense or something to have 2 accounts? I'm so depressed right now. help me please.
I will loose not only reputation but also so much financial loss. I want to sue paypal right now. Help me please I beg you.

Firsrt don't bother trying to email, call etc Paypal. Immediately contact your local Senator or congress person, then file a complaint with the State Attorney General, last but not least contact Ebay to get the buyers email and contact the buyer explaINING WHAT HAPPEN, If the buyer has already paid, ask him to dispute the transaction , that way he can get his mnoney back and you cancel the transaction and protect reputation. Most buyers and sellers on paypal understand this type of horrible business practice is routine with Paypal. If they don't kknow they will find out soon enough.

When dealing with Paypal always have three, four, five, six different accounts. send money to and from each one of them through invoices or fake pourchases. If you ever have this issue again with money frozzen in one of the accounts, go back and find the transactions where you sent and received funds from your different accounts and issue a refund to yourself until you've received back all the funds that were frozen. Even if the account is resticted and funds frozen, Paypal has to allow you to send refunds to buyers, the most I've ever lost from frozen accounts is 50 cents
