    Paypal is anti 2nd amendment and will confiscate your funds for up to 6 months and even more if they catch you dealing in related merchandise.. they are also politically correct about social/political issues and will steal funds from those sites too

    Also they worked out with the IRS to report any sales per year over $10k. If you don't submit the proper forms, Paypal locks down your account (inc Ebay) and the account cannot even be closed by you. Therefore, all the info is there for the IRS goons to go through bit by bit.

    Paypal = bankster greed at its finest. Large fees for transactions that probably cost them .05 cents. Kind of like a bank getting free monopoly money or at say .05% then charging the sheep 21% interest on their credits cards, late fees, etc. Pure robbery right out in the open. Nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care.

    There is a reason most major sellers - particularly gun sales refuse to use PAyPAl.

    It is not a matter of if, it is a matter of when. All you have to do is run a search on the next and see.


    For the source how about their own site?

    If you ever have an issue with PayPal taking your money and freezing it, and the amount is $5,000 or less (for WA state), just sue them in small claims court.
    At the very least, even if you lose, it will cost them good chunk of change as they will have to hire a lawyer to fight it. If they don't hire lawyer, then they will not even contest it and you will win by default. I cannot see any corporation sending in someone who is not a lawyer into a courtroom to fight a case.
