    hey guys,
    I just stumbled upon a few pretty shocking horror stories regarding frozen paypal account and lost funds. I - for myself - have never been a big user of paypal, however I'm receiving my money from paypal and also buying stuff via paypal.

    I'm not experienced with paypal, its difficulties and issues (fortunately) yet, still want to be prepared if the "worst case" happens

    What is necessary to get a paypal account frozen? What needs to be done? "Unusual activities"? What exactly?

    Also: What happens then? Possible to un-freeze the account? is it difficult? Is there a possibility to loose ALL your funds?

    Most importantly: Lets say there is a huge number on a paypal account. How much can the person transfer to his bank account at once without any unnessecary troubles (i dont know whether paypal then thinks that there is some unusual activities just because a person wants all his funds being paid out at once)


    Anyone ? :)

    where can i get it? I'm planning to buy something big and I'm fearing that paypal may freeze me for whatever reason (paying a "large" amount or whatever -- raising red flags..for no particular reason..)

    It seems like they are giving you more time to provide documents these days when requesting them. I think they do listen to complaints.
