  • Payment methods

    Just came across this on social media.

    I normally keep my pp balance in there but may withdraw now

    ----------------------------

    Gentlemen, this is a PSA for everyone who uses pp

    Do not do so anymore, stop immediately and transfer all of your funds out of your accounts.

    I used my account three times in the last two weeks to send money to two friends and to buy jukebox credits for TouchTunes.

    They sent me an email that said they are shutting down my account permanently, this is not able to be appealed, they said I violated the user agreement and they have seized my funds for 180 days.

    No warning, no appeals process, their customer service line said I have to physically write a letter to them and their legal department for any reason whatsoever in any communication in the future.

    I did not use this account to buy cigars from anyone on Facebook, the three transactions I?ve performed here lately, was sending money to two friends that I had both sent and received money from before and the TouchTunes account, I had purchased from as well.

    Are use my account three or four times a month, so this was not an issue of inactivity or anything else.

    Be careful, be careful, be careful.

    If I were you guys I would immediately close my account after you transfer your money out to a different paying system.

        Sounds definitely “dodgy” - I get emails closing or restricting access to my various online accounts on a regular basis - they are just phishing emails don’t go anywhere near them and avoid responding in any way to them

          I do know of someone on FB who had their PP a/c suspended for 180 days, but they were doing a lot of cigar sales and so presumably raised a red flag somewhere on the system. I wonder with the above, if this is the whole story.

            Your cash is always best kept in your own bank account.

                Very common phishing message.
                If you believe that then please give me your bank details and log in password so I can transfer you $43M from my dead uncles Nigerian bank account.

                  They actually suspended his account. And holding on to his finds for 180day.

                  At your risk...only a warning what PayPal are doing.

                    I find myself having issues and arguments with PayPal every so often usually due to selling or buying something off eBay off somebody that turns out to be dodgy but it has always worked out okay in the end. I definitely wouldn?t trust them with my money just sat there though.

                    Revolut is my favourite transfer method these days and it?s also really useful if you?re travelling for money changes at the bank rate without needing to use a credit card

                      Yep, sounds like there is more to this story. If your on about the same guy on facebook, he basically setup an (Illegal) business selling cigars on facebook his paypal transactions must have been crazy so its no wonder they queried it.

                        Interestingly I just got a similar message about my Amazon account this morning. Apart from the poor English and dodgy attachment / link it was saying a similar thing.
                        Straight to the block and bin.

                          Yea he was one of them that it happened to...think they held on to his finds for much longer.

                            I sell a lot of crap on the internet and get payments in on a daily basis. Regular or friends and family, from €5 to €2500. I transfer funds into my bank account every week. I never had a problem except a few years ago when PP asked me for a identity check. And I have never received any dodgy emails about my PP account either.

                              Woh - an old rule but we can?t mention the most famous internet provider on here - the forum was threatened by them previously for mentioning them alongside tobacco. Madness but there u go.
