    You can withdraw it in 6 months. (180 days)
    Yes they can do it, they did it for about $8k of mine before.
    Welcome to PayPal.

    Textbook paypal activities man. Get used to that, if you decide to use them. Personally, I'd go with Payza/Skrill.

    as they are not a bank, they don't operate under banking laws. Thats why they can fuck users the way they do with no recourse. They also likely make money off your funds when they do that, so they have mucho incentive to fuck you over. Your best transferring big money out of paypal to ur bank acct as soon as you get it. Probably should never have more than $100 in your paypal acct at any one time, to keep yourself relatively safe

    Refund EWA and request them to do a wire transfer.

    i would totally agree with him here. I had a 18k payment come into paypal through a website I sold. They said they were going to hold it because I was associated with some other account (which i wasn't it was total bs) I had the buyer put in a dispute with paypal and wire me the money once they got it back.

    Typical PayPal. I think everyone has had a bad experience with them. Also I don't believe it's illegal. It's definitely wrong but then again don't the banks make the laws anymore?

    They did the same to me, after years of paying them commisions for all my transactions, they limited my account, I sent everything to resolve it, then they banned my account because I created it when I was under 18 years old.
    They let me retire my cash and I charged them back with 500€ from my lastest credit card transactions. After a year I still receive stupid letters from paypal layers trying to scare me to pay my debt.
    I haven't used them as far, and I hope I never will.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiat_money

    In short: Money is a commodity, like apples. When the value of currency is determined by the government (or the aliens), it 's called fiat.

    In the past, kings controlled the value of currency be decreasing the quantity of precious metal in the coins but still the law would say that the coin was worth the same as before. Guess what, people didn't really think the value of the coins was the same and that lead to many bad things in the economy.

    Now, we just print and create credit out of thin air :)

    This is messed up. Now Im worried about my payments. Will certainly be transferring to my bank the instant I am paid.

    A friend was sending me money for music. He sent me $200 on 3 separate occasions over the course of one year. They then put a limit on my account for 60 days saying they wanted to " Ensure buyer safety " and I emailed them. They said " Because your selling a lot on Ebay thesedays we want to ensure your buyers are happy and we will hold on to your money incase they want a refund. "


    I went nuts! I emailed back " I dont USE Ebay. None of this money came frorm Ebay!! Its from a friend. " I then phoned them after no reply and got it lifted after a very heated conversation. I have had paypal for 5 years and never had a charge back or a dispute against me so what gives them the right to decide I'm not legitimate? And also wrongly say I sell on Ebay???


    Eurgh. Sickening.

    I basically described the nature of all of my recent payments and that they were from a friend, not from a company or Ebay. I didnt say anything special really but I did make a point of saying I have been a legitimate user of Paypal and never abused the system, never had a dispute, etc.

    The guy ended up aplogising to me and lifting the hold like 30 days earlier then expected.
