Broke For Christmas

Writer Wishes to Remain Anonymous

I have been a seller on Ebay for a while my feedback is 100%. I currently sold some expensive items I had to raise money for Christmas. I verified my Pay Pal account and did all required steps to remove the $500 monthly limit. I received 5 payments over a 10 day period. During this 10 day period I transfer MY money from Pay Pal to my bank account. One transfer for $1200 went through.

While I was waiting for the other 2 transfers totaling $3700 to hit my account I received an email stating “Funds transfer cancelled”. The email said due to suspisous withdrawl activity. I can’t find anywhere in Pay Pal where you only have a limited amount of withdrawls of your own money. I did a Pay Pal phone verifacation and then I got an email that I would get the results of their “investigation” within 3 business days. It has been 11. All I get is automated responses to my questions. The email also said Pay pal has the right to hold my funds for 180 days. What do I do??
