Whatever it was it’s resolved now. It was almost like PayPal was fishing... Kept pushing be for a description of the item I was buying. I was firm in my reposes and finally stated that I had nothing else to offer PayPal in that regard: next email stated my account was restored.
Drew,
Good news!

I agree, but had zero issue closing my account if they were to continue.
Thanks Phillip!

Yeah, that whole situation is wierd? I still believe there is some cross tracking between companies and certain websites that may sell their declared prohibited items. I just will NEVER use them, because I choose not to. There are several other buying/selling options available.

I will definitely be more judicious in my PayPal purchases now. I’ll utilize Venmo and certified check like others have mentioned.

Sometimes we have to do business with the enemy.

Tried paypal a couple times and couldn't get it to work so said to Hell with it and went elsewhere. Now I use credit card or check.

PP makes it way to easy for me. A couple of clicks and I have my merchandise on the way to my home. I don't have to type in my address, CC information or anything else. It is all on file

But then I don't purchase ammo or firearms online.

I have found that as I get older I like to make things as simple as possible. Most days I don't even put my wallet into my pants pocket, last summer I looked around the house for a hour trying to find it so that I could use a CC for a payment. I found it under the bed where it had fallen when I took my pants off the night before.

I purchased a gun from GB and the seller requested Venmo. I added the model gun. Happened to be an old Winchester shotgun so I put winchester 97 and about 30min later Venmo refunded my money with no questions asked. I tried a second time with using the order number and it went through. keep this in mind when using this service as well.
