Paypal holding funds? Why me? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I've just had email stating paypal will be holding funds for 21 days because I'm a new ebay seller. I understand this policy is in place for high-risk and suspicious dealers to prevent fraud, but I don't see why my accounts been targeted?

    I've bought stuff of ebay before and so have 100% feedback for buying, and have only sold two reasonably small items, (less than £15 each), communicating with the buyer regularly etc. I could understand if I was mass selling expensive electrical goods, but it just seems bizarre? Is it randomised selection?

    Can I call them up and request the money, afterall its not exactly legal without a prewarning is it? Its my money and all.
Cats or dogs?
