Paypal sent a nastygram to Fry about accounts no longer being allowed to engage in RMT for Everquest. I responded with a tweet to PayPal. Where shall we go now? Give us a heads up before we need kronos again.

Very shitty backdoor move, DBG!

Any lawyers here? What Paypal is attempting is making up its own laws. My plan is to stock up on Kronos and then move all my money out of PayPal.

Means no more account sales

best solution would be Zellee since it’s link directly to bank. And would be easier to file criminal charges

Zellee SUCKS for recouping monies, I had a transfer back while ago and a REAL ITEM was shipped to me house it was a BRICK! that brick cost me 500.00 all my bank did was politly ask the seller to resend the item to which they responded they did the first timem correctly , i got screwed I hope Friends and Family transfers of paypal are still being allowed or were all in trouble, (note.... any direct money transfer is final unless you can prove fraud AND the bank can get it back like my new shiny brick i got screwed

Paypal can ban whomever they please. It would be nice if we had a legal right to payment systems, or a nationalized payment system so our constitutional privacy protections would be baked in. Until we vote MissTerious into congress there will be nothing as easy or private as meatspace's cash system, and that's a pity.

Some decent options in the meantime: zelle, cashapp, skrill, cryptocurrency.

These are people from other websites who posted their paypal in public. We've stopped using paypal and I'd advise you to do the same.

How on earth can you tell if it's an EC tunnel transaction? if they do F&F with no note?

They've tried to get me to run for local office. I told them I can't be tactful, even when I try. :-D

Where is related info to this? We've all been trading for years this way. I believe the only way they can track back is just random notes players like to leave with their payments. Otherwise if you have other proof this isnt a one of let us know. Thank you for sharing!

Sad day menz, take the proper precautions and at least make it standard to not leave a note on the PayPal transaction about server/cha/EQ.

Are you guys seeing them do this retroactively (looking back at old notes) or any confirm this is just on new notes/transactions going forward?

A knowledgeable friend said their bug is because it's F&F transactions that piss off the IRS. One person here invoices me and says he has no trouble at all with Paypal.

I used Facebook pay last night to donate to a friend. It's really easy.

Whether you use PayPal or any other service. Gifting money for services is illegal. You are bypassing taxation and that pisses off the IRS.

Gifting here started to hedge against fraud. Dont create a full time job out of it and you should be fine. Ultimately if you do create a job out of it you should trade with folks that have great feedback and take the money legitimately

It's not bypassing taxation if you report everything to the IRS correctly. However, avoiding Paypal fees for business services is against Paypal's rules.
