    So I had Paypal AND Plimus on one of my sites. I ended up taking Paypal off because Plimus accepts Paypal.

    This morning I get a email from Paypal and Plimus saying that one of my competitors is claiming I stole his design and Paypal is no longer accepting my payments. Here is a few facts.

    - My site looks NOTHING like his.
    - 100% Unique content.
    - Not ONE graphic on my site is his.
    - His site is HTML and mine is Wordpress.

    So basically how can Paypal even agree to this? Now I have to file a counter complaint. Anyone know how long it will take for that to be processed? Not having Paypal is a killer even with Plimus (I hate waiting 30 days for my money)

    This sucks... I have a feeling he is who had my sites "Hacked" a few days ago.

    This is the thread from where they were hacked

    I am trying to figure out how I will repay him for his "kindness" :D

    If you havent done anything wrong give them a call and ask specifically what the issue is. Let them know after they tell you the issue that youve been hacked recently and your hosting can verify (if you contacted them).

    Phone call, Dude, phone call.

    Call PP right away and they will be able to look at both sites and see no issue.

    Phone call... did I say that already?

    Yeah I forgot to mention that happened also. HG made me take the site down pending review. Was fixed in a few hours.
