Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust… They just suspended me and I have to give the background – though I am so upset I can barely see… I run a prisoner advocacy organization, it’s tiny. So I cannot do non-profit. Now many sites take donations, with no problem, but they told me that I could not and they suspended me. But this site had an address to the president of paypal. I wrote him and I removed the donation buttons and they let me have the acct back.
So this Ramadan I asked people to send money if they wanted to help me send funds to some of the prisoners for Eid. I asked them to put “for services” under donate, but apparently a number of them did not notice that. So today one came through for 25 dollars and they put donation. My account is again closed.
How can they cite me when I specifically said not to put “donation” in the purpose? :’-( The trouble here is – where I live I have to buy everything online. I’m on a very rural area. Also they won’t give me the money – it says something about 180 days to do that! I owe for two transactions now. What do I do?
I’m sick about this.. I am a single grandma raising two kids and I can’t even get my money out and it is ALL I have. (((

PayPal Takes Donation, Freezes AccountI used PayPal to make a donation to a non-profit organization that helps children in Africa. Apparently PayPal had reason to believe that criminals were hacking accounts and donating the stolen money to non-profit organizations...
