    So i sold some idiot a box of plastic bbs, he sent the payment through paypal and wrote in the paypal note that he will "use the ammunition for personal use and not resell it to the Taliban" and paypal now is reviewing the transaction im guessing he set off some blacklisted keywords. Should i be worried, i never had paypal review a transaction and that was a very stupid note to write...

    I wouldn't worry too much unless you have lots of shady transactions. Does paypal have a policy against firearms, and if so.. I wonder if BB ammunition even counts...

    Im not worried about the bbs thats perfectly legal to sell, but i think live ammunition cant be sold through paypal and he made it sound like thats what im selling in the note. Then he also made a reference to the Taliban which makes things even worse, now im thinking they will add my account to some sort of watchlist. Am i being paranoid lol?

    I don't mean to laugh. LOL I'm sorry, but I laughed. It's just the way you put it about the watch list that got me silly.
