    I am just getting crazy with all the ruckus around so called paypal problems. So, I am not getting crazy due to so called paypal's problems but by the stories that are going around of it.

    I have done so many things with paypal and I have never seemed to have a problem till date. I sent and recieved some "good" payments without problem, never got my paypal account locked, won all dispute cases filed against me, just today got my last "good enough" payment through xoom as well, my "withdraw to bank acc." button looks to be working totally fine (although I withdrew through xoom due to all the "rumors"), withdrew in the past to my bank account several times without any problems (had problem just once where it was delayed for over 20 days).

    The point is why I don't seem to see all the problems that people are going crazy about.

    I have one personal account and a business account. Both are in good standing.

    Still, since I don't see/face any problem till now, I want to know what exact limitations are being faced by people. Give it to me point to point so that I can double check. And if I am really lucky may be I will share my details so that you get lucky too :D

    My both accounts are well verified accounts. And I used only VCC's on both of them. And both are well used and maintained accounts. I never did any shady business with them. Still, as crazy paypal may turn into; accidentally; I just want to make sure I am not a party to that accident.

    Any personal specific info or query's will be shared only through PM. (And you need to swear that you will not backstab me by posting my PM info publicly. Perhaps, I will share this info only with a Donor, Jr.VIP, VIP or Mod to be safe)

    So can anyone enlighten me on the situation here and perhaps help me see the problem myself.

    Problems start when your VCC expires.

    One thing that will limit your account is if you suddenly start having large sums of money deposited into your PP account. For example, I had my PP account for 8 years then started selling ebay items. My weekly deposits went from a few k to over 10k in a very short time span. One month later, they limited my account. "suspicious" activity was the reason. Basically, they 'thought' I was either laundering money or a terrorist.

    Just repeated the process with a new VCC. I don't remember if I used EXPUSE the second time but keep it handy, incase you need it. But as far as I remember, nothing was charged to second VCC.

    I even used it to buy some godaddy domains. (Godaddy requires that you either have a credit card on file or your paypal must have a linked CC. VCC did the trick. However, I always made sure of my balances before going shopping)

    BTW, I asked people if they can enlighten me on the problems being faced and what I should be careful of.

    Also, I have an affiliate payment due and I just learned that they are not being reversed. So am still lucky I guess :)

    I never had any problems with Paypal to be honest. My VCC expired, i changed it, never had any problems. I have red about others having a lot of problems with paypal (account suspended for no reason)...

    Paypal actually sucks really bad sometimes. Noone knows when paypal may turn in to a giant and eat up all your balance for dummy reasons. My friend faced such situation several weeks ago.
    He got some big payments and baaaaang.....!! His paypal account was banned.

    That's one of the horror stories of paypal that i know.

    how many $$ you have received on these accounts and how much was the highest.

    On my personal experience 1 have around 10-12 accounts which got limited last year. All accounts were receiving $200 per day. Paypal limited those accounts. These accounts are on hold until and unless i submit them CC statement.

    it shouldn't be legal but it should be decriminalized in countries where it isn't for sure
