Yup.

I'll see where it goes from there.

If they keep smurfing around I'll be calling them on a daily basis asking them if the "fraud protection"  means they protect frauds.

I worry that sometimes, when we send payments for stuff to each other as friends & family, that they may have script bots that can link the deals to our accounts somehow. But, in that light, I won't stop doing it. I pay hefty fees to send money that way, so I don't feel bad about doing it.

Like I said above,when this happened to me it was because there was a single word in the comment line of a transaction that I had written as a note to myself to remember what the payment was for that triggered something in the system to flag it and it was shut down because of that!
When they asked me about it,using this word I was skeptical to say the least and thought I might be getting scammed too?

So I googled the word and realized right away what the deal was but I had never heard this meaning of that word nor would I accept this right away for what they told me the reason was.
Now that I have had time to think about this it actually makes me feel better about the idea that they actually do have mechanisms in place to help deter fraud and maybe terrorism too! Really!!!

As for the Friends & Family thing that is a whole different deal and I will not use it unless it is for real and we all have agreed explicitly to do the same as well as to not charge a premium for using PP from either end in a transaction.

What was the word ?

The Paypal operator did not see a reason why my account got blocked.

He asked me to wait for a reply mail on the email I've send last week to the complaint dept.
With the holidays, the reply can be delayed by at least a week ::)

Just had a reply email that just rewrote what was writen before...

"Your account was blocked for security reasons... blahblahblah..."

And

"Your account will not be reactivated"

So I called them up, outraged.

Told the service desk operator that I knew he couldn't help it, but that I was smurfing annoyed!!

So he was going to refile the complaint... but we all know where that'll lead to...

My email, credit card info and IP adress are all blocked within the Paypal network, blocking me off from international transactions for god knows how long...

:rant: :rant: :bnghd: :crash:
