We have decided to close your account because of security issues

My friends and I used the GIFT SENDING option on Paypal to pay each other back. “Personal Payment” means amounts sent between two individuals (not to or from a business) without a purchase. Examples of Personal Payments include sending a gift to a friend or paying a friend back for your share of a lunch bill.” These words are exactly from the Paypal User Agreement. After I got my money (he paid his part of the New Years Eve party, drinks, food etc.) – how surprising, paypal started to asking. They limited my account, then after I uploaded my ID and answered what was the money for – they closed it.

Their reason:

For the safety and security of the PayPal network, we often review accounts
for potential risks. After reviewing your account, we have decided to close
it because of security issues.

We are making every effort to minimize any disruption to your business.

If your PayPal account balance is zero, and you have no unresolved buyer
complaints or chargebacks, your account will remain limited.

My money is held now, and cant do anything. Fuck that shit.

    Without warning my account was frozen for 180 days!
    Reason: To high risk, to many refunds.(overseas small items never received) and how many is to many? 5-12-20-200? I had about 15 in a year! Over 100 items purchased. So be warned. They don’t care about you having a 100% rating for 7 years.
    How did i find out. A cowardly email. I invited a phone call but never got it. Answer was this decision can not be appealed. Wow great way to treat a customer that has been with them since the start.
