I just sold 2 lots or Browning HiPower mags to two different guys through this board. Great buyers, enjoyed dealing with them, no problems.
BUT, one of the two guys sent the funds to me through Paypal, (even though I didn't list this as a payment method). So, the funds are received promptly and everybody's happy, right? WRONG!
Two days later an eBay buyer is trying to Paypal me funds for a used motorcycle part, and he gets an error message saying that my paypal account can no longer accept transfers. He emails me about this and I go to check my Paypal account to find out WTF. Once there I find that I've run afoul of their "acceptable use policy" by selling "hi capacity magazines".
At this point I'm thinking, "How in the hell did they find out about that?" I go to the payment receipt I got from the arfcom'er that bought the mags, and it says "Payment for Browning HiPower Mags / AR15.com" . Shit.
So, I figure, what the hell, no use fighting city hall, so I sign (electronically) thier acceptable use policy, then delete the images from my website, (which they demanded in their policy), and then wrote them a sincere (sounding) apology.
I should note that they've frozen a couple of hundred bucks of my money in the meantime too.
Anyway, after about 48 hours I get an email saying that I've now been declared a contrite and respectably PC citizen, and that I may now use my money. And my account is unfrozen.
Here's the kicker.... the poor sap who was trying to buy the bike parts from me, he got his account frozen too! He had to call them and assure them that he was NOT buying hipower AR15 whatever forbidden gun parts from me!
I'm still in shock over this, I guess I can't get over the fact that they are actually CHECKING on shit like this. Not to mention that I never sold or did anything illegal. Anywho, no need to rant all over Paypal on this, they're just another no-nothing politically correct blood sucking juggernaut. But I did want to give all you guys a heads up that you should specifically mention that you DO NOT accept Paypal if you're selling magazines, any capacity.
A word to the wise......
