Bascially the Consumer Court says paypal treated its customers like mushrooms and keep them in the dark....

blieb jedoch weitgehend im Dunkeln.

it remained largely in the dark.

It was referring to paypal's behaviours in dealing with customers (especially) after accounts were limited permanently.

Trying to read the claim first then I'll post up a translation.
Strapped for time

Worthwhile noting, Israel has a class-action filed against paypal too.

Very interesting read.
Wonder if this would work if a class action lawsuit was brought up against them here in the US...
