Rumble: Help! I am Paypal-ing! Help!

Last Saturday I had a problem with my Paypal account. Someone had sent me money, but Paypal did not allow me to accept the transfer for one reason or the other.

Here is the factual exchange of Emails so far, in which I blanked the sensitive data.

April 19. Message from [name client] via the Paypal website

Subject: personal account: did not reach receiving limit, yet paypal tells me it does

I recently received a payment of £###, and when 'accepting' this payment, Paypal states I have reached my monthly limit of $1000, which is not correct. Please check -

Thank you.

Dear [name client],

Mr. [name client], I have reviewed your account but I can not find any receiving limits on your account. Please inform us where and how we have told you that you have reached your receiving limits.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Dear Jasper,

I do not see any reason for a receiving limit. However, when I log into my paypal account, I can see a payment for me, pending acceptance:

“Payment From [name] [amount]GBP [date] Unclaimed”

When I click on "accept", I get a screen (screen dump attached) stating: [paste of error message]
I have not reached that limit, so it seems i can not accept this payment...

Could you please have a look.

Thank you.

Peter

Dear Jesper,

answering this now from a different Email account. This one *is* registered with Paypal.

OK, here is where we stand:

1/ I received a payment Payment From [name] £[amount] GBP [date] Apr. Unclaimed

2/ When accepting the payment, your system gave me an error message:
"Accept Credit or Debit Card Payments: You can accept $1000 USD monthly and up to 2 credit or debit card payments annually with a Personal account. You've reached your limit and should upgrade to Premier account to accept more payments."
See also attached screen shot.

3/ The only way I could accept the amount was to upgrade to a Premier account.

Dear [name client],

Thanks for contacting PayPal. I appreciate the opportunity to assist you with your questions.
With a Personal PayPal account you can only receive a certain amount of money on your PayPal account. If you receive more then you will be asked by the system to upgrade to either a Premier or a Business PayPal account.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Sincerely,
Zohir

April 22: Email from [name client] to Paypal:

Dear Zohir, Jasper, Adil or Josephine,

You have NOT read my message. Please read my message containing an error report, and answer appropriately.

Let me give you a hint: I did *not* reach the monthly receiving limit, as I did not receive anything yet that month.

Thank you.

Peter.

Dear Zohir, Jasper, Adil, Josephine, or Sandra

Have you actually looked at my account and at the transaction?

Hint: the transaction number I refer to is [refnr] for the amount of [amount] pounds. The transaction type is “Instant”, NOT credit card.

I hope you will send me an answer which is based on actuals, and not a pre-cooked support cut and paste

Thank you.

Dear [name client],

On 04/20/2008 I answered an email regarding your Paypal account. As part of Paypal’s promise to provide excellent service, I would like to know if I helped you adequately during our conversation (ed: we never spoke). Do you have a few minutes to answer the following questions so I can know how I performed?
