PayPal Won’t Answer Me

By Greg

I have so been pwnd by Pay-Pal. I mean, really- there is nothing that compares
this:  I make several rounds on large forums, pushing my graphic design and logo
services…  Well, I designed a webpage for a nude model and she gave me excellent referrals and started designing on for all her friends.  Now, I’m in the web design business, I don’t sell anything but my services. No pictures, no movies, no anything adult. But I get this message one day when I log into PayPal:
“Resolution Center: Your account is limited. Click to Resolve or Check Status”

So I check my email and get this from PayPal:
“As part of our security measures, we regularly screen activity in the PayPal system. We recently contacted you after noticing an issue on your account…”
I was contacted?
This was the first I heard of this. But the damage was already done. Without warning and without reason, my account had been closed and 6 months later it STILL is closed.

I called and they didn’t tell me anything.  They give me an email addresscompliance@paypal.com or something) and I email them asking why my account is dissabled they never emailed me back.

3 weeks later…
I called PayPal again and after 45 minutes of babble I pulled it out of them. Apparently, my PayPal address was on a website that contains “adult content”, but they wouldn’t tell me which one.  Do I deny it? Hell no. I have my PayPal address on 50 websites. I’m a webpage  designer, what is there for me to deny?

    I have written the following to paypal via their “Contact Us” link which was not answered, and via Facebook which was immediately removed and not answered:

    Hello,

    I have multiple email addresses, some of which I use on certain websites. The problem is, when I give a site my e-mail address, and then buy something from them with Paypal, most of the companies replace the address I already gave them with my paypal address. From my point of view, this is a security breach. I do not want my Paypal address to be used in that manner.

    What is the solution to this issue?

    Thanks,
    Dan
