Paypal sued for freezing customer money


PayPal is one of the leading money transfer platforms.

It is used around the world, including Kenya, where freelancers, including online writers, use the service to receive payments.

However, PayPal has received backlash from users who saw the platform holding money without giving them any explanation. This has been the case in Kenya, as well as in other developing countries.

The company has since been sued, and according to three users who took the case to court, PayPal is accused of violating racketeering laws by freezing customers’ money without giving an explanation.

Often the US company issues vague responses and customers do not receive their money on time. In other cases, customers get tired of following these issues and completely lose their money.

PayPal, which hosts more than 325 million accounts, can freeze money for up to more than six months.

The issue arose in California where the case was filed.

The freeze has been called an illegal seizure and puts customers at a disadvantage at a time when they might be in desperate need of cash.

The plaintiffs say they filed the case to represent anyone whose money was held by the platform.

It has not been revealed how much damages the plaintiffs are seeking from the wealthy company.

Kenyans have always posted their issues with the platform on social media.

Others say they lost up to $2,000. This is a substantial amount to freeze, knowing that the company sometimes fails to give an explanation.

Although the company has competition, it is preferred by many users and companies who disburse funds to their colleagues, family and friends.

Some competing platforms such as WorldRemit work seamlessly with Kenya’s M-PESA platform, eliminating the need to use another service to transfer money from the service, such as a bank wallet.

PayPal allows customers to transfer money to banks such as Equity and M-PESA.

Depending on the amount, M-PESA is almost immediate, while equity withdrawals are settled in less than 24 hours.
