    That sounds daft.
    Illegal to keep longer than 10 days but release after 180 days suspension is over - the two do not go together.

    Presenting work as one's own in order to gain a qualification or other benefit is fraud. Inciting someone to commit that fraud by offering to produce that work for them to present fraudulently is a crime of incitement to commit fraud. Actually providing the work to be fraudulently presented is conspiracy to commit fraud.

    +1 to what Cyndy said...
    Student benefits financially during their life time as a result of having qualifications. You are creating fake documents to aid them in getting these qualifications. They are committing fraud, you are aiding and abetting/conspiring with them to commit fraud, which is also a crime.

    A company one might of thought that would have read the PayPal terms and conditions, and had a little more business savvy.

    Education these days leaves a lot to be desired.

    I believe some of these grubby little firms state on their website that the work they produce is there for the student to g t ideas on ways to produce their own work etc, and that the work should not be presented as the student's own. Such a disclaimer is meaningless if it is obvious to every person and their cat that the student would only pay that kind of money in order to plagiarise.

    There was a student in my classes who used such services repeatedly. Got A grades for his prepared work, did really badly for group work in class and exams. Scraped through some modules with A and D grades, failed 3 of them completely and had to pay to redo them the following year.

    @Kevin McCabe it’s pretty clear from your website that you are offering writing services for students for their assignments. This is what academic organisations are trying to stamp out and PayPal have agreed to.

    You can complain all you want but you probably won’t get your money back. In fact the more noise you make the more you are opening yourself up to prosecution for fraud.

    I’m not sure which is the bigger fopaux, providing a service that allows students to cheat and commit fraud or leaving $50,000 sat in a Paypal account.

    The universe does have a funny way of balancing things out.

    I think it depends on the country of residence.

    I've checked with my plagiarising copy-writing service, and they say it's faux pas.
    This is odd; why is the OP (Original Plagiariser) complaining about $ rather than £ amounts?

    Separately, while I have absolutely no sympathy for the OP's specific situation, this is why I won't touch PayPal with a bargepole : they are an unregulated bank and when they screw you over, you have no practical recourse.

    Most of us users of paypal don't let the balance get too high. That's down to the business, not paypal.

    ...and then you rapidly and seamlessly switch to an alternate payment method to ensure the smooth flow of customer orders is not interrupted, do you?

    It's interesting that the O{P hasn't been back for a while, particularly claiming that Paypal could not hold his money, legally, for more thna 10 days. Not a law I'm aware of - anyone else?

    Used to have 3 payment providers on our website, paypal being just one of them.

    If paypal had suspended the account it would have hurt, would not stop trading even an hour though. And would at most have cost us a day's money. Likely a lot less.

    Not heard of the 10 days applying to paypal suspensions. Have heard the 6 months a few times.

    While UK business forums has many helpful people, sometimes you should consider asking in places where this is all they talk about all day, every day instead of once in a blue moon.

    I'm referring to sites like Aspkin.

    In addition to finding answers, you'll be able to find workarounds.

    By that logic, Subaru and Mitsubishi, selling cars that go 155mph, and do it in a hurry should be done for providing automobiles that contravene traffic laws and encourage drivers to exceed the speed limit.

    Copy toner companies should be done because some idiot can use them as drugs or to make drugs.

    The list is endless.

    If people want to do the wrong thing with something - it's on the person doing the wrong. Don't go waving the bad finger at kitchen knife manufacturers because thousands of yobs decide to go stabbing one another with them.

    But everything on your list has a legal purpose as well as the ability to be used illegally. That is the difference.

    What is the speed limit across the EU?

    And yes the finger has been pointed at those who sell knives such that some companies now have agreed a voluntary method of selling knives or dropped out of the knife market.
