    I deposited some money to run a test campaign from pay pal and PopAds just suspended the transaction. They didnt reject the payment nor did they accepted it, they just held my money hostage and simply stated to contact support. Already pissing me off. So I contacted them and told them to refund my money and 2 days later they just keep asking for more information, so I opened a case at paypal and requested a refund there. Now they suspended my account at PopAds and wont refund me my money. It was just $10.00 but its still a shitty way to handle their business, Ive been a publisher with them for a few years and made over $1,600 with them as well as ran a few campaigns as advertiser too. Never had a single problem. How cant they accept money from the same account they have been sending me money to for years? And if they are going to deny the transaction then why take the money and put it on hold? Just refund it.

    There are a lot of scams in this area and the companies are forced to do extra checking which sometimes is a PITA. Doesn't mean they singled you out, just means your IP or something else triggered a vetting process. Wouldn't blame them. Too many scammers going around freely.
