I messaged them via twitter " It looks like your account has been permanently limited. In general, an account can be permanently limited for multiple reasons, such as excessive risk, breach of our User Agreement, or a violation of our Acceptable Use Policy. Unfortunately, when this decision is made, we can't overturn it, I am afraid. If you have funds on your balance, these may be held for up to 180 days, and you will receive an update as soon as your balance is released"

When I heard about PayPal it reminds me only a big scam, First they will help you to receive money then they will hold money and scam you

How old was your account and what business you were doing? SMM services?

They would never ban legitimate business with no chargeback in account. You must have done something.
Same question. Also did you abuse the Friends and Family feature? Seems a lot of people get banned for doing this.

I've been using Paypal for years, i did not do any refounds or any suspicios trading o something else, just normal account to do basic payments and deposits.

I just log in today and got this messeg "You can no longer use PayPal services" and I have 180 day to withdraw my money.

I called the Paypal number and they told me there's nothing to do, BUT I did not even receive ANY email about my account, I still don't understand what I violated in their TOS and even the call center could not tell me exactly.

Any advice how to unlock my account?

Can i create another account?

happily, crypto adoption is picking up. Welcome to the club..

If you have funds in there, just know that they're going to take them because in their eyes, you did some "Damage" to PayPal. Causing you to pay penalties.

They stole over 7k USD from me. With the same reason as yours.

Sadly I used same address and ID proof.

And last account was not banned. I forgot password and lost the mobile number which is necessary to create new password.:)

And one more thing to be added, I only use paypal as a way to receive payment. I never sent a single penny from paypal to anyone...Because I liked the piratebay tagline "Take what you can, Give nothing Back". :D

Yeah well the ID you can do at least 3 rounds on that - ID, Passport, Drivers License :D

The address though, it's kinda hard to give a different address if you live at the same place, right. You can't verify an address where you don't live, unless you make fake docs or perhaps if you get some bill at a family members or a friends place in your name. Like some utility bill that comes and goes, like phone number or internet or something like that.

But I had made another account on the same person who had an account in the past that got suspended. The second transaction that came in it got limited, and then permanently suspended. But in this situation I was using a person with a static IP, so the IP was the same as before. Also the payment came from a site which may or may not be blacklisted on paypal by now. And the particular sale was for some automation scripts, which supposedly break the TOS of a 3rd party site, and that's not allowed.

Another account that I made, personal in my name after my first one got suspended and I got my money back. That one went for a few thousand $$$, and it even got limited once asking me to explain a bunch of transactions and what they were for. Then the account got restored actually haha. Then a while later one day just got perma banned. 6 months later they gave me the money back. But I was selling SMM here, openly, through a site that's 100% SMM. Easy to find where the payments are coming from.

Anyway when I get the time I'll make another personal account, so my 3rd one, and keep it on the down low with very few and small transactions coming in once in a blue moon, with nothing written in the note, or some fake bs in the note that's legit. We'll see how it goes. Back in the day I'd rush to make a new paypal account, but I'm so cool right now that I don't even need paypal anymore, fuck em. But but but we are selling stuff on the internet of things, so always good to be prayin before playin... i mean having an extra paypal account on hand :p

The only reason they'd close an account down like that is if the risks involved are higher than all the profits you could ever yield.

So whatever they found on your account presents a higher potential cost than your potential lifetime returns for them.

I know this forum likes to hate on PayPal every chance they get (many times justifiably), but I just want to point out that there are also people who have great experiences with PayPal and even their support. I never had an issue in years, their support even called me many times when there were (perceived, but not really) issues that needed resolving or explaining.

In OP's case, it doesn't seem that his country could be an issue, Spain is even in the EU. Did you have any recent bigger transactions? Any change from normal usage? Logged from a different PC/location?

PayPal will ban you anyway.

I write about it time ago.

When a business starts getting good money from marketing, Paypal does a little scan over the business and then ban them or flags them then they flag all accounts using that service then eventually do a full manual look then ban everyone

Sorry only being honest.

Personal accounts or business accounts all get ban from also who there doing business with.

Pay Pal own fraud team are huge.

We buy stuff braking tos we get ban but big companies like PayPal see it as fraud.

PayPal also hates fighting digital cases for refunds.

eBay does their banking for sellers directly because PayPal had enough with digital refunds and arguments.

Being a marketer it has always been advised to use a pre-paid master card and also set up accounts to pay for things but top them for the products you buying

That stops main accounts ever getting ban.

there's a reason they're called Gaypal , the Antichrist , Monkeypal , etc..

You most likely won't get your money back, I just hope it's a small amount that's locked.

They banned a friend of mine and stole his money after 180 days

I only know about this problem as PayPal admitted to me how my account got ban.

Because I was using my main account buying services after days of phoning them and many arguments I eventually got my accounts back, my eBay and PayPal personal account, so I was just as bad as you.

They basically told me straight I bean using services they don't agree on and break their banking rules.

So in essence PayPal cheek both ways buying and selling just how it is

I was lucky I got a nice operator and we agreed I spend a lot and they earn a lot thu me, so they reinstated my account, but ill be honest was a huge week fight days of telephone arguing but I hit a nice lady.

The support can be arseholes you just need to keep going and keep phoning eventually hit a nice support person.

They give the cash to the people you buy from usually or get squashed as fraud money.

PayPal is shitty, I used to be heavily using PayPal years back and was really about 80-90% of my business are conducted there, but since a couple years back they keep changing their terms to be more and more stricter, and when I was inactive for a month or so they started putting payments on hold, even though I have been bringing them money for years since 2011-2012

Nowadays I don’t care anymore with PayPal, there’s stripe also transferwise, sometimes Skrill or payoneer.

It’s not safe to put your money on PayPal, even just $100-$200 I would withdraw them or sell through fnf, I will just keep $10-$20.

If you are heavy PayPal user for business you can even be subjected to depositing money with them, a.k.a collateral for their shitty disputable upto 180 days transactions.

It is just no way of doing a business with you have to be concerned with disputes all the time and at the mercy of PayPal.

Yeah, more than likely that's where it goes as it'll go one or two of those ways.
