PayPal Account for ACSOL Restored

The PayPal account for the Alliance for Constitutional Sex Offense Laws (ACSOL) was put on hold for about a week, but has been restored.  According to PayPal representatives, the IRS is responsible for the hold which affected ACSOL as well as thousands of others.

“ACSOL’s PayPal account was unable to accept donations, either on a one-time or a monthly basis, from December 15 through December 20,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci.  “PayPal has informed us that donations made starting today (December 21) will be accepted.”

Due to the hold on its PayPal account, it is estimated that ACSOL lost about $1,000 in revenue during the month of December.  Future monthly donations to ACSOL have resumed and it is not necessary to restart existing monthly donations.

    Is this a government conspiracy?

    • Skenker

      If “A” claims a charity donation to “B” on their taxes, the IRS:
      1. Checks to see if “B” is a registered non-profit.
      2. And that “B” properly reports the amount received from “A” and all others.

    PayPal, basically shut me down about 2 years ago to ACSOL. I do not use PayPal anymore for anything.

  3. G4Change

    Please tell me that the IRS and/or PayPal can be sued for damages for the amount that was lost. This is absurd!!!!!

    • Skenker

      Nobody “lost” anything. “A” still has their money. Now then, if “B” was a terrorist organization, as defined by section 501(p)(2) , the money “could be” seized by the Treasury Dept and “A” forfeits the money.

        @Skenker (never saw that name here before): Are you suggesting or insinuating ACSOL is a terrorist?

        • Skenker

          Quite the contrary. What I’m saying is that NOBODY “lost” any money. @G4Change is suggesting that somehow money was “lost.”

      • G4Change

        “Nobody “lost” anything.”

        @Skenker:

        Apparently, you didn’t read the following sentence in the article above to which I’m commenting:

        “Due to the hold on its PayPal account, it is estimated that ACSOL lost about $1,000 in revenue during the month of December.”

        • Skenker

          @G4Change —
          “Please tell me that the IRS and/or PayPal can be sued for damages for the amount that was lost.”

          You insinuate the money “A” tried to provide “B” was somehow lost. It never left the possession of “A,” due to PayPal’s blocking of the transfer, therefore no damages occurred. And “B” suffered no actual damages, because “B” agreed to the PayPal TOS.

      • Timmmy

        Have you not heard of due process? They ability to just shut down people’s accounts just on the say-so of any government entity without a court of violates the US Constitution, and needs to be challenged. So, yes there was also a monetary loss which needs restored, plus punitive damages which should come directly out of their budget, and not the Treasury.

    Consider using Cryptocurrencies!

    There are no beloved, ‘badly trying to stay relevant’ authority figures involved that can Control your money. Send however much you want, whenever you want, virtually at no cost.

    Keep your eyes open. The world.will slowly ween off using this government controlled Fiat currency trash as time goes on.

      @Joe123:
      That all works well and good except for the fact that any country, including the U.S., can regulate or simply outlaw the use of it at any time, for pretty much any reason. (See: Executive Order 6102 by FDR, banning private use and possession of gold. Overturned by Ford, FYI.) Since almost all crypto transactions are pseudonymous, not anonymous, government and other entities can track down who did what when. Indeed, the widespread, public ledgers of most blockchain systems actually making tracking financial activities *easier*.

      Cryptos do fit a certain need, but they are not automatically a way to send money without anyone knowing or tracking (though Monero is pretty good). Those interested should do diligent research to see which offers the privacy desired. Just remember, convenience and privacy/security, though not mutually exclusive, operate in tension.

        Historical Note: At the time of EO 6102, the US was still on “the gold standard,” which required the Federal Reserve to back 40% of its notes with gold. EO 6102 allowed the Federal Reserve bank to increase the money supply, by increasing the amount of gold assets used to back its notes. People were required to turn in their gold, in exchange for $20.67 ($391 today) per ounce.

        1. No constitutional prohibition be. Stop believing it.
        2.Ban cash and you ban liberty.
        3. Opt electronic and you opt for risk. (electronic poll tabulation)
        4. Convenience comes with a high price we’ll all soon pay.
        5. Knowing that registrants are NOT YET assembling on mass in D.C. says a certain thing about those living under the thumb.
        6.Miss Closs is now click bait for internet media types, like Miss Smart who declared Miss Closs’s survival, “a miracle” as if God’s will had a role in Mr. And Mrs. Closs’s murder. Talk about distortion! That the people feed on it as entertainment for profit says a whole lot more about the people themselves.
