Paypal account limited due to "replica" flag

Hi all,

Just a short note - if you are buying something from our sales comm, and are buying replicas or knockoffs or anything of the sort, please don't title your transactions with the word "replica" or "counterfeit" or related.

I've just been contacted by Paypal, and my account has been limited because I just cleared a transaction on the sales comm that involved some replica shoes. My buyer had unwittingly titled the transaction with the word "replica". They sent me a long email telling me that I was not allowed to trade and transact counterfeit items, and demanded some details regarding the transaction. I also had to "sign" an electronic affidavit to show that I understood the agreement and would no longer deal with counterfeit products.

I've since emailed them to tell them that they were shoes that I obtained from Taobao and was reselling cos they didn't fit me.

I'll update as the situation moves along.

Edit: My account was reinstated the very day that I sent along all the required info, without any other investigation. It seriously puzzles me why they even had to flag my account in the first place, if they were just ready to take my word for it.
