Paypal Froze My Account And Is Holding My Funds

Writer Wishes To Remain Anonymous

I used Paypal for a grand total of 6 days. My sister had used paypal for 2 years and never had a problem. So I opened an account sold 4 personal items,some paid with a credit card, in order to accept I had to upgrade to bussiness premier. I made it clear I wasn’t a bussiness. I also made purchases. After I received payment for all 4 items Paypal froze my account and funds in the amount $743. They say because a “buyer reported suspcious behavior” i contacted all 4 buyers to find out what was wrong. No one reported anything. It was a lot of BS.

Since I’ve been trying to get someone at Paypal to listen to my request.

After submitting all the info they requested they say that they will close my paypal account and will hold my funds for 180 days. They said I am a finacial risk. my credit is excellent.

They did the same thing to my sister and are holding $1,050 of her dollars.

Any suggestions on how to get Paypal to release my funds?

Keep up the good work!
