Was this a stealth account? Did you send in any id documents?

For PayPal to take such a drastic step, they must have a real problem with whatever it was you were selling. The only way I can see you getting your money back is by getting an attorney. And even an attorney may not be able to help if the problem is that serious.

I had a chargeback on a higher priced product.. so they just limited me but gave me my money and told me I can get it in 180 days but now they arent letting me withdraw it..

If they blocked you from withdrawing theres not much you can do besides keep calling them and get a nicer rep that's willing to let you withdraw or atleast get them to tell you why there not letting you withdraw

I rarely hear cases in which you are not allowed to withdraw after 180 days. They must have a big problem with something you are doing.

I have a feeling there will be some UK cases being posted soon from the recent issues back in November of 'confirm your identity' permanent limitations, where people won't even be able to get their money.

Speculation for now though.

Like others said, you must have ticked off Paypal for them to make that decision.

Either that or law enforcement could be involved.

The chargeback on the high priced product is most likely why they didn't feel it right to send you the money.
What kind of product was it that you sold?

this scares me a bit since one of my limited account is asking for documents... also a linkage to my older account. >.<

Can they really hold your money forever??

Isn't it against the laws?? No complain from buyers anymore so what's the point of holding your money?

I wonder what are PP legal explanations when they steal money this way. If they think money was obtain in an illegal way, and they can't give it to the account owner, why are they allowed to take this money themselves? o_O
