What to do when PayPal screws you over

I set up a Paypal account and sold a Louis Vuitton purse through eBay. Paypal asked me to send in original receipts, to prove it’s authenticity which I did. I continued to sell 7 other items in a week through eBay, all of which they were delivered to the buyers and feedback left.
Next thing Paypal decides they don’t want to do business with me, reverse all the withdrawals of the eBay sales so I can’t withdraw my money, which totaled $2309. They said I had to wait 120 days to withdraw it, which could not be appealed against. I had done nothing wrong and supplied them with every bit of paperwork or ID they insisted on receiving.
So I opened a complaint with the Australian Financial Ombudsmen, and provided all the evidence to them. They ruled in my favour, and not only was I able to withdraw my money immediately, they told Paypal to pay me interest on the money they kept from me and also my account limitation was removed immediately. Complain to anyone willing to listen about how paypal ripped you off and eventually you will find someone willing to help you because you know you are only wasting your time hoping paypal will come through for you.
