They discriminate against the very poor.
I have been using PayPal for about a year - though I have received little, I was receiving small amounts on the average of every few months. I would transfer the funds to a friend who could then get the cash, so that I could get enough food for the month in which the donation was received. I run out of food before the end of the food stamp cycle, and these donations to compensate Me for the work I do and offer here FREELY help Me to get enough food in the months received.
Recently I received a donation of $15 (bless the donor - the donation will be returned by PayPal) and PayPal, out of the blue, said I could not collect the funds because I need to be "verified!" Well, "verification" requires either a bank account or a credit card (which One can apply for through PayPal if One has no credit card otherwise).
I do not have a valid ID because I do not have the money to get one, nor a way to get the 25 miles to the state DMV to acquire it. So... Banks will not open an account for Me. And, of course, I have no credit card, and, as expected because I have no compensation, I was not approved for the PayPal credit. I spent far too much time arguing with automated systems, and talking to many People, only to be told PayPal can do NOTHING for Me. Because I am too poor to get anything They require, I am SOL. This is discriminatory. NO exceptions??? NOTHING to help the very poor??? Guess I go hungry again this month...
Boycott these bastards.
