SouthFront has been under stiff pressure from different sides (corporations and, as we could consider, governments).
Recently there was another blatant attempt to impede the project’ activities.
PayPal restricted the project’s account again and requested additional data 24 days ago (on April, 15). We have been granted 28 days to provide the data or our account will be suspended (deleted).
This is the exact same request that we received in December, 2015. At that time we provided PayPal with all the information that was requested and all restrictions were removed almost immediately.
Now the situation is completely different. Within 24 hours from the time that PayPal’s request was received, we responded with answers to all of their questions. So, our response was sent to PayPal on April, 16th . PayPal did not send us any reply to signal that they received our information. Then, on April 20th, we wrote a letter asking for the reasons why we didn’t get any reply, additional requests or information regarding the matter. Again, no reply. Then, on April, 22nd, we called PayPal by phone and were assured that everything was fine, that there were no worries and that the issue would be dealt with within hours. We requested that the 28 day period be frozen, but we were told that there was no reason. After this conversation over… NO REPLY in any form was forthcoming. No calls, no emails or other notice of any sort. In the meantime, the “28-days” period is still running its course and expiring. Then, on April, 26th, we sent a complaint to PayPal. NO REPLY. Then, on April 28th, we re-sent a complaint to PayPal again. No reply of any kind. Our last call to PayPal was on May 3rd. The tough talk took place and, “Wow!”, an operator said that she couldn’t understand the real reasons why we didn’t receive a reply or additional request. Moreover the PayPal specialist sent us “a message” that the “reasons” are caused by some circumstances beyond the normal course of business.
By now, 24 days of the 28-day period have elapsed without any update from PayPal.
SouthFront has evidence that this situation is a result of destructive actions of the project’s ill-wishers. If the account is blocked, we will provide an additional data about the case.
Dear friends, today we have to inform you that our PayPal account (firstname.lastname@example.org) will be working within next 4 days only. These days, SouthFront is still able to accept your support through it. We ask our friends who have PayPal accounts to send letters/requests to PayPal about reasons of blocking SouthFront’s account.
