    i don't know how it works in Marocco but here in the Netherlands we just call the office of the lawyer and talk with some employees and tell them that you need a lawyer and they will ask you why and you explain and he/she will help you ofcourse it aint cheap but for 8k i will go all the way in ! :)

    Make this public on Reddit and Twitter. Make it viral. Provide proof and show that you're legit. If you're 100% clean then this might become viral and they'll listen to you then.

    Hi

    sorry about that, firstly you need to calm down and analyse to find a way to get your money,

    but i am curious about your ebay selling, you dropship? or you fulfill the items yourself ?

    and let me tell you that eBay share a lot of information with Paypal , and a lot of limitation comes from Ebay itself, and Paypal just excute the order, so i suggest first talk to eBay and see what happened, and ask them about about your account metrics, and account health

    Sure, will do.
    Yeah, I'm selling on eBay. PayPal told me that I'm selling an item on eBay which I've never sold it or even listed before. Plus the id transaction that they reffered to me that caused the limitation doesn't exist at all. PaypPa told me itself that the id is not yours lol.

    My eBay account has not complaints at all and it's clean. Never had a negative feedback.

    I think there is a misunderstanding with them. Now they still investigating.

    Have you ever logged in to your PayPal or Ebay accounts from public WiFi, a public computer, a shared proxy, etc?

    Paypal's account linking algorithm is very sensitive and produces a lot of false positives, but most people never know they're linked with others until someone in that group of accounts gets limited.

    Not an expert, but can you not hire a lawyer in the United States preferably someone who specializes in these cases.

    ok so something doesn't make sense here. Someone used your paypal email and linked it to his ebay , then started selling Hulu accounts !!! right? Can you please tell me how can someone link a paypal email to ebay without verifying it (having your paypal password).

    as far as i remember you'll be asked to log in to PayPal in order to verify and add it to your ebay !

    give us more detail about the case cuz for me it doesn't add up right.

    You're right about. This may not be true but I was thinking this happen to me.

    Let's say that's not true. Why when they messaged me about limitation cause, they gave me a fake reason. The id transaction itself is wrong and never exist and the item never exist.

    They gave me another fake reason on Twitter that I was linked with another account. Are they joking?
    How can this happen. I do log in in my PayPal by using only one laptop and never logged out, they can check my IP address and confirm but they don't listen.

    Elon Musk needs the funds for his Mars project. Hate all the digital wallets to be honest. Not one of them legit and I've lost thousands through them via scammers and their useless support. If someone with brains decided to setup a decent wallet with awesome support channels, I'm sure it would make billions.
