Paypal froze my account claiming suspicious activity, demanded
that I register a bank account and fax in documentation which
I did. My account has been run totally honestly they accused me
of selling academic software but then when I proved this wrong
they blocked me for suspicious activity and stating they were
holding my funds until I supplied my daughters bank statements
etc as I had purchased a present for my grandson and sent it direct
to her address.
I refused point blank to provide confidential information I am
not legally entitled to give them and made a complaint under the
data protection act to the Information commissioners office.
Their reply was that they would seize my funds for a period of
180 days, despite the fact that they are well aware I am terminally
ill with less time than this approximated. My answer was to refund
all buyers to empty the account and then write explaining the
situation I would rather be robbed by anyone else apart from Paypal.
To date most have paid me by other means or promised to do so
and Paypal have been left with an account to seize with 1p converted
to 2 yen to keep me legal all bank accounts and cards used with
Ebay or Paypal have been closed or reported lost.
