    Hey guys, got quite a bit of money in Paypal atm, and am hesitant to keep it in there incase they freeze it all of a sudden (they shouldn't as it's all legit, but you hear the stories). Don't want to withdraw it all to my bank account due to the large amount. Wheres the best possible to transfer it to, and then send back small amounts to Paypal when I need it?

    Cheers.

    Its a bit risky really, if you want to transfer to a different e-currency, it will also be quite costly.

    If its legit it shouldnt get frozen. Sending away then sending back in small amounts and withdrawing straight away may raise a flag.

    True, however I was thinking isn't there the option of maybe transferring it to a Paypal alternative, AlertPay or something one, one that isn't notorious for screwing customers.

    I wasnt aware you could pay direct to alert pay via paypal... if this is possible, then perhaps try that.

    But as far as im aware you will need an exchanger, who will charge a fee. Then charge another fee going back.

    Its up to you, its your $$

    Man, Even don't think about this. After you deposit money there you can't get it back. You have to create a project and spend money on that, once I tried this & I couldn't get it back. (nearly 30$):eek:

    Freelancer is a buggy shabby site.Never ever deposit money to it.They have their own kingdom which do not respect any customers.The best way is to transfer to your bank as small amounts several times,But you will lose money

    what ever you do, do not keep money in paypal. my money was all legit, and they just limited account for no reason. you cannot get anyone to talk to, i send them emails/requests daily, no response from them. they are not a bank and do not need to follow any rules. they can take your money whenever they want.

    DO NOT KEEP MONEY IN PAYPAL. i lost $400 just 4 days back.

    Could you simply transfer it to a friend and have them switch it to their bank account and write you a check?

    Too late.

    They said I had a week to act; the day after, they limited it.

    There are no direct ways to exchange e-currencies.
    You need an exchanger. I think LR is the safest place to keep them and trade in.

    But the exchanger's charge pretty heavy to move paypal to LR. And those who dont are mostly scammers.
