Following a Surge of Online Calls to Close PayPal Account, Several Users are Reporting Closing Issues

Several users have reported that PayPal won’t let them close their accounts and instead directed them to contact customer support., that only tells you how bad the situation is.

The Gateway Pundit reported on Saturday that PayPal will begin fining users $2,500 directly from their accounts if they are found to be spreading “misinformation” in its newly updated policy.

On September 26th, the financial service announced some changes to certain agreements.

Starting November 3, 2022, PayPal is expanding the existing list of prohibited activities to include the sending, posting, or publication of messages, content, or materials under its Acceptable Use Policy.

“Violation of this Acceptable Use Policy constitutes a violation of the PayPal User Agreement and may subject you to damages, including liquidated damages of $2,500.00 U.S. dollars per violation, which may be debited directly from your PayPal account(s) as outlined in the User Agreement,” said PayPal.

Users will be subject to a financial penalty if they violate the revised policy in any way, including by spreading false information, engaging in discrimination against the LGBTQ community, posing a risk to user safety and well being, and so on.

The former President of PayPal, David Marcus, blasted the policy — calling it “insanity” because “a private company now gets to decide to take your money if you say something they disagree with.” Elon Musk agreed with his comment.

After major backlash, PayPal reversed course and said they will not be fining people $2,500 for spreading ‘misinformation.’

“An AUP notice recently went out in error that included incorrect information. PayPal is not fining people for misinformation and this language was never intended to be inserted in our policy. Our team is working to correct our policy pages. We’re sorry for the confusion this has caused,” said PayPal.

Several public figures have advocated for a boycott of PayPal over the company’s Orwellian “misinformation” policy, and some have already done so.

Dinesh D’Souza tweeted: “Stop using PayPal and look for alternatives. They were ready to steal $2500 of your money on the pretext that you have the wrong opinions. Sick bastards! They only backed down because they got busted. Let’s bust them some more so the lesson really sinks in!”

Rep. Lauren Boebert: “Remember that the only reason PayPal won’t be fining people $2,500 for “misinformation” is because we spoke up, boycotted them and cancelled our accounts. Do not silently be a player in the game of cancel culture. Fight back.”

One user commented, “Endless hours chatting with the support here. Some people are able to close it in seconds. Others it takes weeks. Criminal.”

Another said, “Looks like they’ve disabled Account Closure over at Paypal to prevent customers exiting their platform. No doubt there’ll be the usual corporate-speak on “temporary technical issue” inbound.”

Looks like they’ve disabled Account Closure over at Paypal to prevent customers exiting their platform.

Candace Owens urged her followers to make sure they also delete their data when closing their PayPal accounts.

@AskPayPal your process currently makes me confirm my identity by texting me a passcode. When I enter the passcode it says that my identity has been verified and then sends me back to the beginning of the process again.

I want my data deleted entirely.
