Short story 1 “Even if you win, you don’t” :

Well, why not deny the kid his money? It’s what they do. Paypal denied me a couple hundred bucks for having the nerve to sell things on eBay faster than PayPal wanted me to. Locked down my account, and wouldn’t give me access to my money for over a year.
I filed in small claims at the Justice of the Peace here, and they actually sent a lawyer across the country to show up and give me a verbal beating in front of a judge, at which point the judge ruled in my favor and the fucking company STILL wouldn’t give me my money.
Their lawyer sent me an email informing me that it wasn’t worth my time to pursue the money any further, because if I tried, they’d get it bumped up to the next court, at which point I’d need a lawyer, who’d cause more in the first half a day than I have in my PayPal account.
Finally, after a year, I got an email “reminding me” that my account was still active and that I still had money in it. Well I fired off an email of my own saying that social networking is a far more powerful tool than their lawyers, and I wouldn’t hesitate to tell this story every chance I got for the rest of time.
Suddenly, my account was credited with the exact amount I’d paid in court costs, making us square for every single cent. That’s how I know they wanted me not to tell this story, even though they didn’t ask. So since PayPal doesn’t want it told, here we are.

TL;DR: It isn’t enough for PayPal to fuck you. They’re going in dry, and they’re explaining why you should feel grateful that they didn’t attach football cleats to their dick first. Don’t use PayPal.

Short story 2 “1 of these things is not the same” :

I felt a moderate amount of pride for earning back the money spent buying Diablo III through selling items in game almost a year ago when the game was new. I quit playing the game and didn’t bother with cashing out the roughly $60 in my paypal account.
Turns out my dick head lawyer father sold something for over $6,000, ripped someone off, I suppose, and paypal ruled against him in the dispute. They put his account to negative $6,000. I suppose around the same time they sent an email freezing my paypal account for having personal information that linked me to someone else’s account. I figured out it was my father because they showed me the email address. They were basically saying that they believed we were the same person and they were going to seize my $60 unless the other account status was restored to good standing. We have literally nothing linking us other than name. Different addresses, all that jazz. He told me he sold something and listed as no refunds, and paypal gave the guy a refund so he told them to fuck off. So they took my $60 and I basically can’t have a paypal account anymore.
I don’t even care anymore because fuck paypal. I tried for a while to prove that we weren’t the same person but they weren’t interested. The guy I talked to on the phone listened to my story and then put me on hold for long periods of time. He’d come back and ask for more info then put me back on hold. Eventually he came back on the phone and started repeating “the other account must be in good standing” over and over again until I hung up.
I had another member of my family also a lawyer say he would sue them for me, but I don’t think it’s worth it for $60 and possibly being able to use paypal again. They are scumbags, which I knew was true because I read things online similar to this thread. The legal stuff would be free on my end because he gives me free legal services but I don’t really want to fuck with it. Fuck paypal.
