Default Paypal Group Break Payments

Guys..am I out of the loop on this...any input anyone can provide would be a huge help - these posts from the Enforcers group break, but with it being in there figured not all would see it and this may not only effect myself, but others and we'll need to update the rules.

Helps as great double check if your username is forgotten or I have questions.

TSJCT- your request hit inbetween the filling of the break, and 4 slots went over. I've added this to the reserve list and/or extra. I'm willing to go do extra boxes if we continue to fill slots. Let me know if your good with this (also sent you a PM).

If thats the case or even preemptive can just have Enforcers in the title.

Fish,

In my past experiences with our site and breaks we have talked to paypal over and over and they are 100% serious on anything that relates to group breaks.

They said they consider it gambling and will freeze your funds even after 1 person mentions group break, it automatically flags them for certain words and that is one of them. Raffles is another.

Just make sure that NO ONE enters anything about group break..

Another way around this to make sure that the breaker prints a label out for every single purchase made and they wont have a problem with it.. even if the person doesnt get a hit.. just print the label

But how to do they make this determination. I understand the raffle concept, but its a normal type break will everyone will receive something.

Regardless given this info I'll send out my directions requesting that group break not be mentioned.

Fish I've seen it happen 3 times..They see several fast payments of the same ammount and then check to see if Break,raffle,ETC is mentioned...They have really cracked down on this, as with the gift payments...I'd hate to see someones paypal get shut down over what is supposed to be fun...Don't really understand their thinking on this

Given the gambling aspect..may be bigger eyes on it than theirs (ie big brother). They just dont done with a big gambling bust in the past few months. If any of that had paypal ties (likely for $$ passing hands), this may of been their next easist thing to look at. Lord knows lots of paypal transactions daily and a few could be easily hidden?
