This is the second time Paypal took my money. This time they planned it and purposely waited till i had over 8000USD in my account, when they eventually took it for themselves, disabled my account and keep on avoiding me and any questions i have.
I had been a user of paypal for years. First they froze my money and then i had to open an american bank account to get my money back after waiting 180 days and a huge struggle. Eventually got my money back with the help of Pioneer services. After Paypal tried to take my money the first time, but then returned it, they disabled my account, and at the same time told me i can not use the same account again, but i am welcome to open a paypal account again.
I basically never had claims and always into the same sales. They were very well aware of my sales, and that everything has always been legit. My customers always happy. Paypal offered me another account.
I then used the new paypal account and trusted them. I left my money in the account, as i never thought they would crook or scam me. People told me, take your money out and don't trust PaypalI, as they are doing the same to millions of people. When i asked them where my money is, they started avoiding me, not to mention the incompetent call center chat staff, who wasted days of mine, as i can proof.
They every time say i did not follow the policy, but can't explain how, as i never violated any policy. If i have violated a policy, why did they offer me to open a paypal account again, and why did they wait for me to have over 8000 usd, to deactivate my account and take my money? Why did they wait to close it after numerous transactions? Why did they not close the account after the first 10usd transaction if they think i violated a policy?
First they said i can have my money after 180 days and then they took it and changed their story to violation of a policy. I found it once again strange as i did not have claims, and all my customers are happy, and even willing to sign a petition against paypal for taking my money and the money of thousands of other people using and trusting paypal. They just reply with a story of damages caused and then avoid a person afterwords. I did not cause any damages, and once again if they feel this way, why did they not close my account after the first or second 10usd transaction?
Why wait for 8000usd and 100's of transactions later come with this nonsense? They wait for people to build up a big amount in the account and then take it. This is an illegal way of taking people's money Paypal. I called many times to what seemed like a level 0 customer service reps.
Please return my money PAYPAL! Do the right thing!!
Monetary Loss: $8000.
Preferred solution: I want all my money back!! It is my money and Paypal have no right to take it!!.
