I have had a paypal account for about 4 months now.
I use it for sales here, and I use it to purchase at ebay.
This morning I decided I wanted to make some purchases at ebuyer and as they have the £10 off offer on with google checkout I decided to withdraw my cash from paypal and use google for these transactions.
I added a bank account (I am unverified) and started the withdrawl of £270.
I then got an email this afternoon from Payal
they have reversed the transfer and locked my account.
it simply says
"Why is my account access limited?
Your account access has been limited for the following reason(s):
20 Apr. 2007: We have observed activity in this account that is unusual or potentially high risk.
they have stopped me from doing anything and have listed the things they require me to do to aid thier investigation, these are...
20 Apr. 2007 Confirm bank details Waiting for your response
20 Apr. 2007 Enter Expanded Use NumberforVisa/Delta/Electron Card XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-2646 Waiting for your response
20 Apr. 2007 Fax documentation Waiting for your response
20 Apr. 2007 Validate your Account Information for Visa/Delta/Electron Card XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-2646, Waiting for your response
20 Apr. 2007 Provide Business Information Waiting for your response
20 Apr. 2007 Provide Certificate of Posting Waiting for your response
that seems insane
can they do this?
what do I do? I need that money and I haven't done anything to warrant this, nor have I had a payment from anyone with an unverified account
has anyone else been through this?, please, do you have any adivice?
EDIT - They have also charged me a £14 fee for THEM cancelling my bank transfer!
