That’s rich

The story, anyway: Where do the confiscated funds go when PayPal freezes an account?

Well, they don’t go to me, that’s for sure:

Let’s be honest, if you own a website and do great business and get rich through it with PayPal, PayPal will close your f*cking account on suspect of money laundering fraud or terrorist financing.

Well, just comply with KYC guidelines and provide personal identification to prove who you are and what you do legally to release those finances then.

Nope. Apparently those documents that you turned in are ‘photoshopped’ and you’re locked out of your account forever.

First off, on what base do they have to say if a photo of physical documents is altered or not?

Finally, what does a non-governmental entity do with this ‘dirty money’ after they’ve seized it from you? In theory, if they don’t return it to authorities, doesn’t that make them fraudsters themselves?

So apparently PayPal trusts this crapweasel about as much as I do. All, therefore, is right with the world.

    No, I think he’s legit. Not once does he substitute “youse” with “you,” so he’s not a mobster, and nowhere does he call Paypal a cabal of filthy Zionist kaffirs so he can’t be a terrorist.

    Jeez, next you’ll tell me not all cowboys in black hats are bad guys.

    Hackers in black hats, though — pond scum, the lot of them.

    No, that makes them lying sacks, and thieves. PayPal is not your friend. And never will be.
