Suspicious activity = we can freeze this account for a couple of months, grab a crap load of interest off investing the money, then give him his cash (minus the interest) after we have "reviewed his case"
Jesus, I wouldn't want to invest that money into a company. Just invest it into something else, generate more revenue so you can realize more dreams.Cpt.

I agree I would furious if I was making that sort of money then all of a sudden my account was frozen.FloodOne said:What a joke. There needs to be some sort of business edition of paypal. Hopefully the government steps in and gives the money to it's rightful owner.
AFAICT, & IANAL, but it's pretty standard practice for most monetary institutions. Since Chip/Pin came in, banks (and similar) regularly monitor transactions in case your card/account is being used fraudulently or being used to launder money.Lightslei said:So can anyone explain to me how Paypal's business practice isn't illegal in some form.

In response to people suggesting that it's somehow his own fault for letting all that money build up in a PayPal account, Persson noted that he actually clears out his account every week. "They limited my account just as sales started spiking, so this money has accumulated since they limited the account," he said.
