Is PayPal’s action justified ?

September 10, 2006

PayPal doesn’t allow sending or withdrawing more than $100 as an un-verified user. It is quite fine. But mysteriously, PayPal allows to receive more than $100 as an un-verified user. Then doesn’t allow the user to transfer the money in any way. Is it justified? If a user accept more than $100 as he doesn’t know the above mentioned rule, what will happen with the extra amount of money over $100 if the user fails to make his account verified? The money will stay in PayPal’s account for indefinite period of time. Virtually, PayPal is becoming the owner of the money.
Is it ethical on part of PayPal? I guess PayPal has grabbed millions of dollars in this way. When PayPal doesn’t allow sending or withdrawing more than $100 as an un-verified user, they should limit the receiving amount to $100 too. They are allowing the user to receive but not withdrawing or sending the money. This is a plusible policy and not justified at all.

Furthermore, sometimes PayPal suspends the user right to send or withdraw money. But they don’t suspend receiving of money. What will happen with the money received if the user can’t resolve the issue? Shouldn’t PayPal suspend sending & receiving right at the same time, if they need to do so? Suspending only the sending or withdrawing right seems to be a fraudulent policy to my consideration.


Tips on craigslist ad posting

August 5, 2006

Craigslist is the most popular free classified ad posting site in the USA and worldwide. I have long experience of posting ads on craigslist. Craigslist has very high Alexa ranking. Due to it’s huge popularity the site is number one target of the spammers. Craigslist is upgrading it’s system continuously to fight against the spammers. Now it is harder to post the same ad on different locations or multiple times in a particular location.

Following are some tips for posting ads on craigslist over and over again:

1) Unique Email address: Try to use a different email address for each posting.

2) Unique description: You need to change the ad description each time. Otherwise, simply it is not possible to post the same ad over and over again.

3) I.P. address: Change your I.P. as frequently as possible. Craigslist allows to post about 10-20 ads per day from an I.P. If more is posted then it is blocked for few hours to few days, even permanently if abused recurrently.

4) Titles: Using a lot of different titles are also helpful. Particularly, it reduces user flagging. And obviously user flagging leads to staff deletion.

5) Time gap: Don’t post more than 10-20 ads at a time. Give some time gap between each batch of postings.
