Forum Post: Protest Paypal at their NYC Pop-up Store

Everyone remember paypal and how they screwed wikileaks?

Or maybe paypal is arbitrarily holding your money, for reasons which are not legal, and in ways they can't even define? maybe they seized, 'linked' or froze your funds for bogus reasons?

Maybe they just stole your money or you got reamed by their fake guarantees or misleading 'buyer protection' policy

Here's your chance to have some face to face with these corporate money grubbing fascists.

Don't forget Paypal is owned by ebay either. So boycott ebay as part of the bigger boycott against the 1%. In case people weren't aware, ebay spends millions of dollars per year lobbying so that crime (eg: profiting from stolen, fenced goods) is legal for them. They've also been abusing small American 'Mom & Pop" sellers in favor of "big box' stores which sell made in China garbage, much of which is poor quality and oftentimes dangerous in terms of lead poisoning etc.

here's a whole lot more info: http://occupywallst.org/forum/occupy-paypal-billions-in-rolling-resever-for-6-mo/

AND Meg Whitman, ex EBAY CEO blew millions running for governor of California. If that's not a perfect MOOP moment, I don't know what is.

Her and ebay/paypal are thicker than thieves with Goldman Sachs and other criminal bank/finance entities. They got caught in a big stock fraud so bad it sparked new SEC regulations for 'stock spinning'

It was awful funny when she lost that election. She spent around $180 Million from her own pocket, plus a lot more.

I agree. They are crooks! I have 100% poz feedback and $500 in my PP account, then they tried to withdraw $150 from my bank 3 times without my knowledge causing me $98 infees, yet they froze my ebay account for nonpayment of fees! They should all go to jail!

Oh, hell no.

I know people are mad because of Wikileaks but, hell no, I can't do this.

Paypal is my bitch & I like it that way.

The way paypal did the "Paypal 14" kids is something right out of a bad scifi movie. They want to give them 15 years in prison for a digital sit in, while paypal is illegally holding millions if not billions of people's money in direct violation of the state money transmitter laws.

Beyond that they even wanted to go after the organizers of the paypal boycott that internet group Anonymous had, and charge them with conspiracy for closing their accounts.

Paypal probably bought the FBI the same way that JPMorgan bought the NYPD.

Anyone who has used ebay and paypal knows they operate like the mafia. They are crooks plain and simple. Close your accounts. Boycott them both.

Here's another one. It's a little dated but the same crap is still going on

ebay buys congress

What does this have to do with OWS?

[-] 1 points by TIOUAISE (2526) 12 years ago

Spoken like a true TROLL outed ages ago, Mr. "Joeschmoe1000"!

PayPal and eBay are part of the cancer eating at America, so this post has EVERYTHING to do with OWS.

Thank you. People can just search the web and the tubes to see plenty of righteous criticism of ebay and paypal. Follow that last link to start. They've destroyed a lot of American lives, while their CEO rakes in megabucks, and they also are tax cheats. They hold $billions offshore. After the wikileaks scandal and the 'paypal14' deal, I think it should be very obvious why they should be considered part and parcel of the 1% and everything which that entails.

here's a bonus parody video that really does cut to the core: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3H9LPVknk8

Haha! That video doesn't pull any punches. The guy running ebay now is a "Corporate Raider". His only purpose is to fleece Americans and send profits to China while he gets rich beyond belief and wrecks what was once the most popular website.

It really is treason.

I have to confess that I don't know any of these stories. And if that outs me as a troll, whatever that means, so be it. Can't watch YouTube on my mobile. Any article links? Or just some facts I could chew on?

Can we please use open arms and give the benefit of the doubt? We can't assume everyone is smart enough to think for themselves. We aren't born trolls.

[-] -1 points by Joeschmoe1000 (270) 12 years ago

How are they bad exactly? Did they do something illegal or immoral?

Also, what is the troll thing about? Don't get it.
