I think all of us need to group together to figure out what to do here. Get one law firm to handle our cases rather than take them on individually. It sounds like more people are going to go through the same thing.

I did checkback after 180 days after they told me I could withdraw. However the bank on the account was closed. I needed to add a new bank account and when I tried to do that on my end there were only errors. I needed to call PayPal to fix this. As a result I didn't need the funds right away and decided to wait thinking I can withdrawal them later. I am quite busy working on major projects 16/7 travelling constantly. That was my mistake. Obviously you wouldn't expect a large company like PayPal to just take all your funds out of your limited account without any notice or explanation.

I am in the United States.
So you checked back after 180 days, but as soon as you figured you weren't able to withdraw you dismissed it and figured you would resolve it later?
I'm trying to figure out how many days after 180 days this happened. I'm going to be following this closely. I really want to know why this is happening

Okay to be a little bit more specific.

Account #1
  • Q4 2018 it was limited
  • Funds became available exactly 180 days later
  • Just over 365 days I tried to withdrawal the funds and they were removed out of the account. It wasn't exactly 1 year. It was 12 months 20 days.

I take full blame for not trying to withdrawal the funds sooner but obviously I did not expect PayPal, a large company would do this. I have been extremely busy raising 2 kids as well, travelling (been overseas) for work and no time to get everything setup to withdraw these funds until now. I did not expect PayPal would just take the funds for themselves.

I don't want to be exactly specific unless someone at PayPal is going to reach out to me and resolve this.

My plan is to just wait and see how other people resolve this, try to group together if possible.

This also happened to several people back in 2017 on here and they left out a lot of details.

I think it has to do with something you people are selling

I really don't know to be honest. The memo says AUP Violation Damages so I assume it's to do with the initial violation. However I was never told what specific items I was in violation of. They told me I need to file a subpoena for information on their decision. I never told PayPal what I was selling nor did they even ask me. Also why didn't they fine me right away or before the 180 day deadline? Just randomly just over 1 year after the limitation they took the funds without any notice. I just logged in and the funds were taken. They took all 100% of the funds as well even the cents. They didn't leave a single penny for me to withdrawal.

Also the other account that they took funds out of isn't even me. It's my wifes account. Completely different items we were selling.

These are not shell accounts. The phone numbers are expired and addresses were mail forwarding addresses but everything I believe on the account was accurate.

Can you send me links to these 2017 incidents. How I found this thread was because I google'd

Payment to:Paypal;PayPal's damages caused by Acceptable Use Policy violation

This is what it says in the memo. I didn't see any incidents other than recent issues with them on the paypal community pages and on aspkin.

At the top of the transaction receipt which paypal did create a transaction receipt showing the funds were withdrawn to paypal accounts, it does this say:



There is no link to click on and nothing in the resolution center.

It also says this but when you click on it and go to the resolution center, nothing shows up.

The way this normally works is nobody really gives this any attention/thought at all until it happens to them. It may not be contributive but at least I'm staying in this thread and doing what I can to help

I may reach out to PayPal but waiting to hear back more from others on this. I have tried in the past to speak to PayPal but got no where. Based on what others said, they tried to contact PayPal about this and they wouldn't tell them anything.

Right now I'm not entirely sure how I am going to proceed with this so just waiting to get in touch with others with this similar issue and brainstorm what to do from there.

Default Re: PayPal's damages caused by Acceptable Use Policy violation

hi,
I'm from Vietnam. I got that similar situation. Paypal transfer all my $31k with the note that "Paypal's damage cause by acceptable use policy violation".
I provide services to ebay seller and get their profit shared.
My account is said to linked to my older brother account that he got scammed and charged back so his account is negative $10k.
When my account get limitation, I called Paypal rep and he suggested me to write a PoA for them to transfer $10k to my older brother account. I agreed because there is no way to transfer USD from Vietnam to his paypal account.
But they just wipe all my money. I'm collect information to sue them in Singapore. Anybody has any news about this matter, please help because this is really a huge money to me.

Does this statement mean that the employees of PayPal who are the representatives of PayPal. These people are active in the forums? And they can be identified? I'm shocked.

If your money is removed for POLICY violation,it has nothing to do with your brother's account,2 separate issues here
you don't know that if you ask me the policy is a little obscure I think there's things in the policy that they aren't revealing

Going to direct message you soon here. Same thing happened to me of a higher dollar amount. I plan to add and link everyone who had this problem so we can all talk about this together and figure out what to do here.

In terms of suing them, this is why I told the forum here that I am going to wait a bit before I make a move. Any type of lawsuit against PayPal will be extremely difficult and they also state in their terms of service you agree to take them to arbitration.

It seems more and more cases are piling up now. Nothing we can do short term about this so it's best to strategically do this correctly.

Default Re: PayPal's damages caused by Acceptable Use Policy violation

Here is what PayPal is doing to us.

https://www.paypal.com/in/webapps/mp...agreement-full

9.7 Acceptable Use Policy Violations. If you violate the Acceptable Use Policy then in addition to the above actions you will be liable to PayPal for the amount of PayPal’s damages for each violation of the Acceptable Use Policy. You agree that $2,500.00 USD (or equivalent) per transaction in violation of the Acceptable Use Policy is presently a reasonable minimum estimate of PayPal’s actual damages considering all currently existing circumstances, including the relationship of the sum to the range of harm to PayPal that reasonably could be anticipated because due to the nature of the violations of the Acceptable Use Policy, actual damages would be impractical or extremely difficult to calculate. PayPal may deduct such damages directly from any existing balance in the offending Account, or any other Account you control.

Default Re: PayPal's damages caused by Acceptable Use Policy violation

Essentially what is going on now is one or more individuals at PayPal have apparently made the decision to start fining people who previously broke their AUP (Acceptable Use Policy) which as all of you know breaching their AUP could literally be thousands of different things. Anyone at any given moment could be breaking their AUP and PayPal will never tell you how you broke their AUP without a subpoena.

In all cases I have seen so far, PayPal just drains the entire paypal account of all funds. There is no $2,500 fine, they take all 100% of the funds out of your PayPal Account. I assume that's because there is more than 1 transaction so they fine you multiple times until your account is 0 as they say $2,500 per transaction.

So doing the math, if a company had 1000 transactions and violated PayPal AUP Policy at any moment on any PayPal Account linked to you doesn't even have to be under your name but trails back to you, x 2500 they could take $2,500,000 from your PayPal Account if you had $2,500,00 available.

See how ridiculous this is? Very shady business going on right now. I am skeptical if there maybe some fraud going on inside PayPal and it's being covered up. Definitely doesn't seem like a decision PayPal executives would start making jeopardizing their business model that they are a safe company and then on the side abusing their policy and wiping accounts clean for their own gain.

This is the verbal agreement between us. I have to find a good niche for them. Some of them are dropshipper.
My older brother and I living in one house. I guess PP caught IP so they said 2 accounts are related.
