It won’t happen to me…’
Well, that was yesterday…I hesitated posting anything then because I thought it would be resolved because, afterall, I did nothing wrong. Well, I got an email this morning and the appeal was denied. I am done. No paypal account for me. FOR LIFE. Yes, I said…FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. Are you serious? Are you freakin’ kidding me?? Ten years of having and using this…my one and only paypal account..allowing paypal to take a percentage of my earnings for every transaction made…never having a single complaint by a customer…and they deny me even an explanation after all of that.
I called again and yes, that is it. They do not nor will they provide me any details as to why my account was closed….unless I provide a subpoena. And even then he (customer service) delightfully told me it would not change their decision. It is final.
My funds that were in there are frozen for 180 days…after that they will probably release them.
I have no idea what any of this means for my business… fortunately TPT sends checks and you can purchase using a debit or credit card…for online buying I can use google checkout or amazon checkout. For the time being, my Teachers Notebook store is closed.
For me, it is the point. I did nothing wrong…and yet I am being treated and punished as if I did …with no way of defending myself. I am horrified…and heartbroken…worried and irritated. I should have entitiled this post as “Why I Hate Paypal.”
and to make matters worse….
did I mention our heat has been out all weekend?? lol
