I just received notification from PayPal that they consider my site in violation of their Terms of Service. They have closed down my account and will not allow me to access it nor give me the money in it. Their notice even says that I cannot petition them to argue my case. This is why CosplayDeviants does not have PayPal access and uses ccBill instead.
THIS BEING SAID… YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN ACCOUNTS. If PayPal keeps trying to deduct a subscription fee, you have to cancel it.
I’m sure it’s a waste of time but I have just sent off an email to them anyway explaining that they have no right to content on my site that they can’t even see!
Here’s just part of my response which I’m sure will go unnoticed.
I have already announced that my site would be closing (http://amberunmasked.com/?p=1660).
I need access to my account as I use for all sorts of purchasing and banking transactions not tied to my site’s activities. I have enrolled in classes which gets paid via PayPal. I cannot have my account blocked for 180 days. There’s no warning? No asking for clarification?
First of all, I am an artistic glamour style model. Though the images contain nudity, they are not pornography. I model for art schools and private artists of the comic book industry. The fact that you are trying to censor art is shameful. My site does not contain things that you’d find in triple X sites like descriptions of sexual actions, masturbation imagery, or anything not easily seen on cable television. The modeling I have done is in the same vain as pin-up models from the 1940s.
The fact that you say the ruling cannot even be petitioned is ludicrous! Have you even asked to review my content? No you haven’t. You’re making a broad assumption that bare breasts = pornography.
