PayPal – Conusmer Complaint – August 29, 2017

Consumer Statement:

Paypal breached contract and shut our account down. Our eBay store is locked, and purchases cannot be made. Our funds that we earned are being held for 6 months. We are a licensed seed dealer and plant nursery that has been in business for 4 years, and without warning, Paypal froze our account for violating policy. But we simply did not violate Paypal policy. They closed our account for selling trichocereus pachanoi cactus seeds, which pose no danger to consumers, and are legal to possess and sell in all 50 states. We contacted agricultural officials at both the state and federal level, as well as the state office that handles seed selling enforcement. All entities stated that the seeds are perfectly legal to sell, and pose no public threat. Despite our prompt closing of the listing/advertisement in question, and thoroughly explaining that there had been an error made on part of Paypal, they have refused to correct this breach of contract.

Paypal is also holding our funds for 180 days, which is unlawful.

I spoke with George Hayslip, the Environmental Administrator at the Florida Department of Agriculture Bureau of Licensing and Enforcement, and he reiterated what the United States Department of Agriculture stated: Trichocereus pachanoi (San Pedro cactus) seeds are not harmful, and are not illegal to sell in any way, in any part of the country. Please note Chapter 578 of Florida State Agricultural law. Below are all contacts that show that I have not violated the terms and conditions of Paypal. Our account was limited, despite our not violating Paypal’s terms and conditions. PAYPAL IS SCAMMING US! Please pass this around, imagine that your livelyhood, your business, was decimated for no reason overnight, and your funds, your money, was taken from you for 6 months!
