Death To Paypal

 Paypal is holding all my funds for 180 days and has permanently limited my account. They will not remove my banking information.

This the email i got.  There will be many so just scan through them. The last is the best so far.

Now, this is a response from Paypal to me after I emailed them:

I just need to know what i did wrong and what i can do to get my account back. I have removed paypal from all of my sites, and want to continue to use paypal the way you want me to, but if I don't know what the problem is, there is no way for me to fix it.

 Then their final response to me:

 Dear Thomas Ward,

So, with no questions asked about what I was selling and no responses on any future emails, I was stuck and they had my money and all my information, and there was nothing I could do but wait 6 months. Then I happened to talk to a lawyer who advised me to send them this email and also to myself to prove it had been sent and the verifacation that they recieved it. hahahahaha  I win!

What did I infringe? It is unfair and in-just to take in what ebay has told you and as they are only stating opinion and are mad because they no longer get a piece of the action. I want proof that I violated any copy infringement in anyway.  Also this has come to pass:

1. I will never use ebay or paypal even if this gets resolved.  

2. I am verbally stating that my money is not to be held in an interest bearing account and any holds that contain profit from a interest bearing account is a conflict of interest as it is the receiving company that makes the hold.

3. All accusations must be proven in order to disclose any information to any of my customers

4. I will not be held responsible for claims of non receipt of items, since Paypal will not allow me to add this info

5 .My bank account has been closed, and Paypal is not authorized to charge my account anything

6 Any charge sent by Paypal as of 8/13/2011 will be treated as a unauthorized charge and will be submitted to fraud department at my banking institution

 7.ebay rights I have previously granted to them are now unauthorized and will be treated as fraud

 8. Wells Fargo or any Paypal affiliate or business partner or anyone that deals with any of these companys(ebay and Paypal) do not have the right to contact me or charge me on these company's behalf

 9. I will perform my legal right of freedom of speech to send out and post every email and unauthorized charges made public so that a unsuspecting person won't go through what i have.

10. By receipt of this email you are notified in advance that you are UNAUTHORIZED to contact,charge,email,or use any other form of contact unless it is to ask for proof of shipment only any other contact will be considered harassment and will be treated as such through my local police department.

Notice the catch 22 if they respond at anytime to my first question in the email it is considered harassment. Anyway please post your comments and i can be reached at killerdealz@yahoo.com if you have any questions.

DEATH TO PAYPAL THEY ARE NOT INVINCABLE HAHAHAHA
