Pissed Consumer Interviews ?
After using the Paypal services for several years using my email on December 26th of 2017, I received U$33,000 payment for the sale of one of my websites. The buyer sent me the money using Paypal; PayPal limited my account and placed my funds on hold for security purposes; after waiting for many days, talking with many representatives and having my account reviewed and cleared, my funds were available for withdrawal and my account was restored and activated. I tried to withdraw my funds (U$26,000 after making some payment with my Paypal balance) to my bank account but it was not possible to do it. Paypal alleged that the bank information was invalid, even when they have made plenty of withdrawals to the same bank account with the same bank account information before. I tried to withdraw multiple times without any succeed. Then I got another email from Paypal were my account was being reviewed again without any reason, they asked for private documents concerning important information from myself, the buyer related with the sale of the website and the business; then they decided to close permanently my account and hold my funds for 180 days. I have previously requested a review/appeal of my case which was denied. Although I still disagree with the decision to deny my appeal I will abide by it – however because I feel that holding my funds for 180 days is excessive, and perhaps a punitive abuse of power, besides Paypal is operating as a financial institution with power of seizure, without legal authority to do so; Paypal is committing felony fraud (possible laundering activities going on as as well, since it seems to be widespread and ongoing), but just my own money is $26,000 and Paypal is refusing to release funds, not belonging to themselves, which is called grand theft. The funds are part of my daily life expenses and during this period of time I haven't received any income or profit in my bank account which has affected my personal being physically and psychologically since I don't have enough money to pay my personal expenses.
My mother died on January 19th 2016, she left 1700 in her will to my son who lives in China, we thought the best way for him to receive his inheritance was through Paypal, this has been the biggest mistake we ever made. I made this payment to him on April 14th 2016 and to this day he still has not received it, all sorts of excuses including that he had the wrong bank. We have both made phone calls to our respective helpdesk numbers and raised queries but nothing has happened, I travelled to China last month and we both were in the same room speaking to a Paypal advisor named Priya who is in the call centre in Malaysia; she promised to return the money to my account, we emailed immediately to the office the documents and information she requested to return the money, this was 20th July 2017, the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org with FAO Priya on the message box. Attached to the email was a copy of both our passports, a letter confirming the request for the return of the money to my account, bank details for both our accounts and a request for confirmation of receipt of the email. We did not get a confirmation so resent it on 27th July; again no acknowledgement. Do I have to travel to the Paypal office in USA and knock on the door to get this money back? Are you incapable of replying or completing the transaction? We both request that this money is returned to me with immediate.

Paypal - Terrible Service
Now they are holding payments for who knows how long. I've been using them for years. Customer service is useless and rude. I tried to close my account but they won't even let me do that. Looks like I need a good attorney.
