Update on the PayPal situation. On June 13th PayPal closed my account because they didn’t like the material on my web sites. Yesterday I filed a small claims court case against them for $5000 – the mex you can sue for in California. Here’s the details of my encounter with them and there’s a recording of my phone conversation about their policies.
My suit is based on the fact that I have 50000 web pages that I need to change – and that I was actually in compliance with their policies, and that 10 cents a web page is reasonable consequential demages that should be awarded to me.
Like I said in my phone recording – I did get my money back that they froze for 180 days. I put the pressure on and they caved in. Got my refund check a few days ago.
What PayPal did was very slimy and I’m not done punishing them. I want to file another lawsuit for injunctive relief forcing them to reinstate my account and to force them to alter their User Agreement to something that’s legal. I live in the next county over from San Jose and I’m looking for a free lawyer to represent me and put PayPal in it’s place.
