On June 1, 2014 I received email from Paypal to permanent restrict my Paypal account and hold my money on my account $3200. And I called Paypal they refer to Babyliss product that counterfeit and give me contact to Conair company directly for more information then I had send many email to them but never answer. Then I called Paypal again they said they been to holding my money for 60 days after the last order if no any complain from client they will release the money. So I am keep waiting until today is over 70 days nobody complain anything. But just received the email from Paypal today saying as following: Dear Customer, Paypal recently received a Temporary Restrain Order ("order") concerning a lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Northern district of Illinois in the matter of Bears Electronics, LLC v. The Partnerships to the sales of counterfeit. et al.; Case No. 14-cv-5209, relating to the sale of counterfeit goods bearing trademarks including Beats. The Order requires that your account and current balance be temporarily restrained until Paypal is advised otherwise by the Court. It is our understanding that you have been or will soon be serve with a copy of this Order. We kindly request that your or your legal counsel direct all questions regarding this restraint to Green Burns & Crain, *****@******.***, who is representing the plaintiffs in this matter. I really don't understand what's Paypal means in this letter they want to continue holding my money no limit time to release? Before they said they restrict my account because "Babyliss" now is time to release my money they said about Beats that another story to holding my money.
