paypal are asshats
a) thinking up methods in which to replicate account 'hacking' and fraud so that they can limit, and then charge their indoctrinated customers.
b)Purposely go out of their way to employ a variety of unusually-named extremely unhelpful dumbass fucks.
"Right, so -£10, yeah?"
"because remeber the rule, NO MATTER HOW MUCH you make through paypal, your account will always be limited, withdrawn from, and then fined"
PayPal is run by greedy crooks, mobs, thieves and possibly terrorists and has no customer support whatsoever, only a robot that gives automated responses.
Their so-called "protection" is basically: Sure we'll protect you if something happens, we'll just rape you with fees BEFORE something happens. And if something does happen, you will need to file a case, wait six months, pay another fee and we might give you another automated response.
On top of paying eBay fees (listing, final value, reserve, pictures, etc) you are now forced to use PayPal and ONLY PayPal as your sole methode of payment... (and pay another fee that's worst than Western Union).
PayPal: Your $2000 is currently being held in a temporary balance.

PayPal: Investigation is complete. We're sorry but we must hold your payment of $2000 just a bit longer because we enjoy pissing you the fuck off. Please wait 6 months for us to further investigate this transaction. Thank you.

PayPal: Ok fine, we just like toying with you, here's your $1800. That's right, we took $200 of it because we enjoy taking a chunk of your profit. Thank for using PayPal, bitch.
