Paypal is getting a dose of their own medicine

I have not long since submitted a 27 page report to the Financial Ombudsman Service here in Australia against PayPal.
It is too lengthy to submit here.
It included copies of all the emails PayPal sent me and all my replies in date and time order.
Needless to say, I received a reply from Paypal virtually repeating their old emails.
The matter is still being dealt with by the Financial Ombudsman.

They have frozen my accounts but, fortunately, I was aware of their reputation of illegally seizing funds and had developed a personal policy of withdrawing everything from the account immediately it arrived. Hence, they got nothing.

Basically, they have achieved nothing except to annoy and inconvenience me so I intend to do the same to them.

I am now investigating what suitable alternatives.

    I always withdraw my money right away too but at my last withdrawal, for $500 paypal put a stop on it and said there was a review that has to take place and that was over 2 weeks ago and I still have not heard anything or gotten my money.
