    PayPal horror stories
    We are launching a new program, and since it's a new offer with a company that has not gain any brand awareness, we decided to go for a while with PayPal that makes users feel more secure (instead of starting with a merchant account and having users doubt if they want to enter their credit cards on unknown site).

    And yes, we are planning to signup for in 3 months, so that's not a debate.

    Our transaction value is under $100, so it definitely doesn't reach PayPal max limit.

    Knowing all horror stories about frozen accounts, I would like to hear from those:

    - whose account with incoming funds was frozen or
    - who knows exact stories of someone else with the same issue

    So, what I would like to ask is:

    - how much $ was on hold
    - for how long
    - what was the transaction value (large? small?)
    - what did you do to solve the situation

    and the most importantly...
    ... knowing what you know now HOW COULD YOU AVOID YOUR ACCOUNT BEING FROZEN?

    Thank you.

    Oh, and one more question.
    Do everybody who got their account frozen for no particular reason, get it unlock and acess their funds or you are aware of some other outcomes?
