    Paypal just froze and closed my account for no specific reason.

    I am running an outsourcing company and they just sent me an email telling me they are closing my account. They said its too risky doing business with us. WTF.

    Decided to call them up, again transferred me to over 5 different person the last one calling herself "Supervisor", but still can't give me a good answer.

    I have money in the account, company money, my money. To hell with paypal. My advice to all of you guys, don't put too much money in your paypal, if you can withdraw it like every 2 days, do it. We don't know when paypal shows up and ruin your account.

    Cheers,

    Jake

    Was your account opened in your own country, under your own name, with correct banking and mailing info?

    www.paypalsucks.com how much money do they owe you? I fcuking hate them but they have a strong hold you need to use them for certain things ... I hope you resolve it.

    Yes mate. I have already withdrawn many times in that account, and now all they can say is "the account is too risky, it's too risky doing business with you", OMG.

    About $300++, not that much but it should help us here because every money counts. I don't think it can be resolved, they said I have to wait 180 days to get ma'money.

    It was fucking ridiculous.

    Yes, thats probably true. Has anyone tried libertyreserve? I know they dont allow chargebacks which is good for merchants the only problem is I cant find a way to load funds :D

    sounds about right :]
    But seriously, yeah as someone said, you should really be withdrawing your cash every few days...that way you minimize your losses. Thats why affiliate networks dont let you do that, if you are blackhat, theyll let you make money for them up until pay day, then drop you without pay...its a sick world haha. I think paypal also gets suspicious about an account that deals with other countries unless its specified as a business account...next time you might want to call them in advance to tell them you will be doing transactions with other countries
