The issue in GetHuman2947731's own words
Reference ID: PP-***-***-***-*** I am respectfully requesting that the hold on my funds*account be lifted. I am not necessarily requesting that my account be re-opened or allowed to continue to use the PayPal service, as I have already taken my business to your largest competitor and I am no longer in need of PayPal’s services. Because I feel that holding my funds for *** days is excessive, and perhaps a punitive abuse of power, I will be filing complaints with the following agencies on Wednesday morning, May **, **** if I am not satisfied with PayPal’s response to this request to release my funds: (agencies that I will be reporting to) The California Office of the Attorney General http:***contact*complaint*form.php?cmplt*CL The Kansas Office of the Attorney General https:***contact*complaint*form. Rues Law Firm Tony W. Rues *****@***.com ***-***-**** Additionally: The United States Federal Reserve http:***complaintinfo.cfm?info** (I understand that PayPal does not operate as a “bank” which is precisely why they may be interested in such complaints) The Better Business Bureau: https:***odrweb*public*complaintlink.aspx All complaints will be filed “online” Wednesday morning May **, **** and written copies will also be sent via certified postal mail. I understand PayPal’s need for holding funds for credit card chargeback purposes, however a review of my account history for the last several years will reveal a very low chargeback rate. I feel that any reasonable person would conclude that holding my entire balance for *** days is excessive and my be viewed by some as punitive or as already stated, an unnecessary abuse of power and perhaps even contrary to the laws of some states. That being said I have no problem with, and agree to leaving a balance of $*** for credit card chargeback purposes for the duration of the *** days. I feel that this is a fair resolution while still leaving PayPal with the means to charge back any future credit card disputes to my account. Please be aware that replying with the standard “this is part of the terms of service that you agreed to” will not satisfy my request, or deter me from filing my complaints with the agencies listed above on the morning of Wednesday May, **. It will be up to those agencies to determine if PayPal is operating within the law, abusing power, etc. I am simply seeking a resolution that is fair and in the best interest.
