SouthFront’s PayPal account is to be frozen on May 15 (More details: The essence of PayPal’s requests, History of SouthFront’s communication with PayPal, Open Letter on the Situation with SouthFront’s PayPal Account).
On May 12, we wrote another letter asking for the reasons why we did not receive any reply, and attached again the answers to all of the questions. We have not expected a reply of any kind.
But the situation changed. After the start of the informational campaign and due to your letters/requests to PayPal about reasons of blocking SouthFront’s account, PayPal’s support decided to provide, at least, a formal answer. Considering that SouthFront’s account will be blocked on May 15, it looks like a last minute attempt by PayPal to appear as if they are being fair and not subjective. Indeed, PayPal is trying to temporize.
PayPal provided this answer on May 12, 2016 (Requests and replies originally were in Russian because the owner of the account is the resident of the Russian Federation.):
Thank You for contacting PayPal. We apologize for the delayed answer.
Request PP-004-750-857-672 will be considered in the nearest future. As soon as our specialist takes stock of, we will contact You via email. If you want to follow the course of request, visit PayPal’s center of the resolution of problems in your account.
Thank for understanding. We appreciate Your concern and looking forward to further cooperation.
SouthFront accepts donations through the PayPal account (firstname.lastname@example.org) till 20:00 CET, May 13. Then, we ask our readers to use other ways to support the project for reasons of safety.
