Default Paypal, i can't withdraw my money!

Recently, i tried to withdraw my legal money from my account into my bank account in Indonesia, and i've got notifications from Paypal, we've detected an unusual activity inside your account.

Frankly speaking, i only open the paypal account from my own PC, and i've never open it from other computer. Never, because i only trust my own PC, it's free from keylogger, has an updated antivirus, firewall.. and i would like to say, there's no security breach so far. I can see from the log file of my firewall.

I think the problem came from my IP address number, since i was using a cellular network, so the IP is very dynamically changing. Well, paypal should think another way how to handle this. I am pissed! beside i can't withdraw the money, paypal cut off of my money about $ 2.. gee, i can buy a website domain, at least .info at go daddy.

I've got the money mostly from Fiverr, yes i am a graphic/header website designer. I've been working in IT for 12 years, so i fully understand about my own computer security.

So, dear master of internet marketing and the audience, do you have any suggestion beside paypal? what is the other services that's very secure and give tremendous satisfaction for me, especially for international users?

Sincerely yours,

Listen to me, i dont care what others have to say about this.

Paypal is a damn scam, every time someone earns money with them they hit you with the fake limitation, and same message "we've detected an unusual activity inside your account"

6 Months ago i did a product launch for a custom made Wordpress plugin and earned over 1400 in 4 days and they limited me, and made me wait 190 days to get my money back.
So now i use paypal indirectly using 2checkout.

And as far as getting your money back goes, if they haven't giving you steps to resolve the limitation that mean they banned you. but if you do have steps to remove the limitation just do the steps and withdraw your funds, there no other way to work around this unfortunately.

Do you want instant targeted organic traffic to your affiliate links or your website?

Did you send them the required information once your account became limited? Usually it takes 190 days to get your money back only if they decide after reviewing the provided information that your account is too high risk. This could mean an issue with your identity, product, or customer issues. Many people handle thousands and thousands of dollars with paypal and don't have major isissues

The best way is to contact paypal through email or call them.

wow - that's an unusual way to start a post. If we all think like that then your post is waste because we don't care what you have to say.

Well, that is a problem only Paypal admin can solve. Try to email them. That is the best thing to do.

Call them and talk to them. They limit accounts for many reasons. If you had never taken much money out than they could think that it is someone else withdrawing the money. I know mine got limited because I pulled $500 out when normally I never pulled any out and just used it to buy stuff online. It got limited once because I normally only get payments of up to $50 and then someone sent $500. As soon as I called them the restriction was taken off within 48 hours.

Are you sure that the email was genuinely from Paypal? Saying that they have "detected unusual activity" is a classic way for scammers to start their fake Paypal emails.

Log directly into your paypal account or send them the email and ask if it is genuine.

These things happened when you withdraw a large amount. Paypal will ask some details to verify some details. Submit all documents and withdraw it again.

you can always try and contact paypal. They have a free toll free number so just give them a call and your account limits would be removed immediately.

Also is your account verified ? Make sure you submit all the documents immediately when they ask you.

One more important thing, never leave your money in paypal account. Keep withdrawing them on regular basis. As soon as I touch 160$ (transfer from paypal to bank becomes free) I send a withdrawal request immediately.

Yes I agree with iuditg, I am also doing that, I regularly withdraw my money in Paypal every week or every time I hit a $200. Paypal have limitations because its another form of Security. They don't want other people (hackers) to withdraw money from your account.

Something worth bearing in mind is that if you get paid and then withdraw it and someone wants a refund - you can't refund from an account that doesn't have the money, so you'd either have to add new funds (which can take time) or pay them and incur fees.

I've had this before when I used to take money out whenever it went over $1000. I had a coaching client pay and so I did a withdraw (for the same reasons you mentioned, you can only get ripped off for what you leave in the account if someone hacks it) and the next morning they changed their mind and wanted a refund. Because the money takes time to withdraw it wasn't in the PP account and it wasn't in my bank account. So to wait for it to hit my bank and then resend it back into my PP account took quite a while. Long enough that the person started to think I was trying to stiff them and not return it.

Just something to consider.

If you already have money in your bank account and you do a withdrawal from paypal and someone ask for a refund doesn't that money comes from your bank account that is tied to paypal...

This has happened to me but I had money in my bank to cover it so it wasn't and issue but people need to be careful when withdrawing money from paypal...

First of all, you need to call PayPal and talk to them about the situation. Unusual activity doesn't necessarily mean you did something wrong, but something got flagged and they chose to "Protect" your account by freezing it as the lesser of two evils.

Or would you prefer they just let the money go to some crook and let you worry about it? :rolleyes:

There's no point in speculating about it because apparently you don't know any of the details beyond what you mentioned here. And certainly none of us knows the full story either.

@AndyHenry - I do know you can do this...email the customer and explain the situation. Ask them to open a dispute immediately and PayPal will cancel the withdrawal to your bank (assuming it has not been completed). Then you can refund the customer (documenting in your response why the dispute was filed) and they get refunded that much quicker.

I believe (have to check on this), if there is a pending action against an account with a zero balance and no back up funding available, PayPal will issue an eCheck, but hold it until sufficient funds are available.
