I Love Paypal!
I dumped PayPal years ago. It was because of this and other problems. I have friends that used to do a lot of internet selling that have also opted out of paypal, and eBay. (yes, I know your post is not about ebay).
I think it would be fun to put "making a bomb" in the comments of ALL transactions and when they ask, just say it's an inside joke and to shut up.
I'm sure being that rude will really help your situation.
And what does being in the Navy 24 years ago have to do with PayPal?
You didn't happen to use the no fee "Friends and Family" option, did you?
Actually, though it may not help (or hurt) his particular situation, it is important for companies to suffer some sort of customer push-back for this sort of thing if it is to stop. Simply complying politely gives them a pass. It doesn't help in the big picture. It hurts.
I've actually had plenty of emails from PayPal saying their was strange activity (or something similar) on my account. Ignored it and it went away. No need to be an A Hole and no need to say "oh hey I'm a veteran so you should be nicer to me"!
I'd guess PayPal thought "MEC 3-Band" is a firearm.
A quick Google search would have brought them this MEC 3-Band - Google Search
Lazy bastages! Joshua should be fired!
I agree about the veteran remark.
I also am not an "a-hole" to anyone. I go more into Mr. Spock mode. It's been my MO for decades. I did learn in retail and dealing with retailers that when you are being treated in a way that you deem inappropriate, it is best to not simply comply. But I'm also one, that when given bad food or service at a restaurant, will simply smile and quietly think, "we just won't eat here any more."
This is what I, and a few of my friends have done regarding Paypal. Now, if it was the only restaurant in town, my strategy would change.
My mommy always told me I'd catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Or was it bees... No, bees make honey. I don't think it was vinegar either. Anyone remember what it was my mommy used to tell me? I think it applies here.
Always wear clean underwear in case you get into an accident?
Don't forget to wash behind your ears?
The early bird catches the worm?
Eagles may soar, but weasels never get sucked into jet engines.
Words to live by.
My friends and I always pepper our phone conversations with phrases such as, " Did you see that movie last night? It was the bomb!" and "Jim's new kid is crazy; he's such a terror!"
We always image the headphones popping off the heads of the NSA agents.
And, to get back on topic, I really dislike PayPal as well and use them as sparingly as possible.
Mom: Don't be a wiseacre Joe Nerve
Mom always used to call you that when she was mad at you.
If she is anything like my Mom, she would have said "Joseph Nerve!!"
I closed my PayPal account because of a transaction here in the TB classifieds. Long story short: I think PayPal is a lot more vulnerable to hackers than they claim to be, and have poorly trained employees.
That more accurately reflects my perspective. I have around $12 in my paypal account, and have not used it for four years, at least.
I noticed "Warwick" has the word "War" in it. I think you dodged a bullet by leaving it out of your description.

I agree that it's important for companies to get feedback on their policies, and I'm one of those who will provide it. However, it should be businesslike, specific, and there should be an explanation of the problem prompting the feedback.
As a result, problems that I bring to the company's attention are usually dealt with promptly. I keep in mind that the employees didn't create the policies, they just have to enforce them. As a result, I find they are often frustrated with the policy and pretty understanding. Pissing them off generally is not a way to expedite resolution of your problem.
The OP's post is perhaps understandable, but it's neither productive nor appropriate in tone.
