    PayPal, which has banned some prominent conservative figures from its platform, has found a new group of undesirables to financially blacklist — porn stars. Pornhub announced Thursday that PayPal has stopped all payouts to models on the popular hardcore porn site. “We are all devastated by PayPal’s decision to stop payouts to over a hundred thousand performers who rely on them for their livelihoods,” the porn site said in a release. The decision represents the latest move by big tech firms to censor or silence groups they disapprove of by blacklisting them. Silicon Valley giants including Facebook and Twitter face...

    On Monday evening, Sabo, the conservative street artist who is mostly known for his street posters that randomly pop up in California, reported on his Facebook page that he has now been kicked off of PayPal. "Today Paypal canceled my account with all of my money in it," he announced. "They are holding my funds for the next 6 months." PayPal is the money exchanging platform Sabo used to earn income, and this de-platforming hits him hard financially. "I explained to them that I live in a city with 60,000 homeless people and that they are about to make me...
  • Any Way of Verifying That Our Paypal Donation Was Received?

    Myself ^ | 10/25/19 | Me
    I usually donate via Paypal. Paypal says I have made the donation and it is deducted from my account. But I wonder if there is a way to verify that FR actually received the money. After the donation when PP says "returning to merchant" I always get an error message. I made two separate donations last night and today the scoreboard shows only one more donation from [Kentucky] than before I did so. I know this sounds paranoid, but it seems hinky and I'd like to confirm the donations.
  • America's Wokest Companies, And What They're Paying Their CEOs

    Several of the largest, most well known corporations in America also happen to be some of the most left-leaning. Indeed, in today’s hyper-partisan political era, intensified and arguably defined by the election and administration of President Donald Trump, left-wingers in positions of corporate power have used their leverage and political leanings to effectively add a whole new term to America’s political lingo - Woke Capitalism.Under the Woke Capitalist model, companies aren’t just producing and selling a product to create shareholder wealth and provide for employee livelihoods, they are also assuming the mantle of social justice, or fairness and equality as...

    Super Happy Fun America has had their PayPal account permanently limited, meaning they can no longer use PayPal services, can no longer take donations, and can no longer open or use any new PayPal accounts. Essentially, they’re being deplatformed to the point where they can’t even maintain financial stability. The news comes courtesy of a post over on the Super Happy Fun America website where they shared the e-mail from PayPal who stated that their accounts are no longer viable for use. The e-mail was posted in full, which you can read below. If you’re unable to read the message,...

    Last week we saw bitcoin, the great hope of cryptocurrency, skyrocket to over $13,000. It was in the vicinity of $3,200 as recently as December. Why? Maybe it was Facebook’s new venture into creating its own digital currency, Libra — although, if that were to be successful, how it would offer any type of validation of bitcoin is beyond me, and a whole lot of smart people on Wall Street. In fact, it might spell the beginning of the end for bitcoin. There are almost no major Wall Street investors of substance with meaningful track records who have invested in...

    PayPal and GoFundMe have banned the militia that made headlines for livestreaming their detention of 300 migrants at the southern border. The militia, the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP), claims to be comprised of many former law enforcement and military members. In a statement to BuzzFeed, PayPal claimed that the group violated their “Acceptable Use Policy.” “The account associated with United Constitutional Patriots has been closed due to a violation of our Acceptable Use Policy,” the spokesperson told BuzzFeed News. “We do not allow PayPal services to be used to promote hate, violence, or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory.”...

    PayPal CEO Dan Schulman admitted during an interview with the Wall Street Journal that PayPal works with the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) when it considers blacklisting conservatives. “I think North Carolina was probably the moment that was the most visible, where we basically said this violates our core value and we need to make a very public stand on it,” claimed Schulman, referencing the time when PayPal pulled out of an investment in North Carolina because the state passed a bill making it mandatory for people to use the bathroom of their biological sex. “Businesses need to be...

    PayPal is terminating its relationship with Alex Jones and his website, Infowars, the online payment service said Friday. After an extensive review of Infowars and its related sites, PayPal said in a statement, the company “found instances that promoted hate or discriminatory intolerance against certain communities and religions, which run counter to our core value of inclusion.” Last month, Jones’s podcasts were removed from iTunes after Apple said it did not tolerate hate speech. YouTube soon took similar enforcement steps against Infowars, saying Jones had “repeatedly” violated its terms of service. Although Twitter initially resisted banning Jones, it, too, removed...

    The creeping exclusion of the right from online platforms like Twitter and Facebook is well-known, drawing the attention of Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale and the RNC. But a greater challenge is on the horizon: the exclusion of the right from financial services.Conservatives have long been the target of shadowbans, biased algorithms, and account bans on social media. Not content with silencing their voices online, the left now wants to stop the right from using the web to fundraise. Thanks to the increasing willingness of online fundraising platforms and payment processors to ban clients for political reasons, they are getting...

    PayPal wrote to a woman who had died of cancer saying her death had breached its rules and that it might take legal action as a consequence. The firm has since acknowledged that the letter was "insensitive", apologised to her widower, and begun an inquiry into how it came to be sent. -snip He has now received a letter addressed in her name, sent to his home in Bucklebury, West Berkshire. It was headlined: "Important: You should read this notice carefully." It said that Mrs Durdle owed the company about £3,200 and went on to say: "You are in breach...

    European regulators are clamping down on Silicon Valley companies because they are “jealous” of the success of the technology industry in the US, according to PayPal co-founder and investor Peter Thiel. Speaking about the looming threat of regulation for these companies, Thiel said that the “threat is probably greater in Europe” and there are “good reasons and bad reasons”. “The good reasons are these privacy concerns and the bad reasons are there are no successful tech companies in Europe and they are jealous of the US so they are punishing us,” he said at the Economic Club of New York...

    What if the finance industry — credit card companies like Visa, Mastercard and American Express; credit card processors like First Data; and banks like JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo — were to effectively set new rules for the sales of guns in America? Collectively, they have more leverage over the gun industry than any lawmaker. And it wouldn’t be hard for them to take a stand. PayPal, Square, Stripe and Apple Pay announced years ago that they would not allow their services to be used for the sale of firearms.

    Special counsel Robert Mueller's office announced on Friday that California resident Richard Pinedo pleaded guilty to one count of identity fraud on February 12, according to court documents.

According to the statement of offense, Pinedo ran a company called "Auction Essistance," which offered services meant to get around the security requirements set by...

    Attention parents and guardians: make sure your Paypal password isn't obvious or simple. One tech-savvy nine-year-old girl from Immingham, Lincolnshire, gave her father a bone-chilling shock after blowing roughly $1,300 on a dream trip to Disneyland Paris. Ian Wilson, the child's father, was fast asleep when his daughter, Susan, got ahold of his phone and began a little midnight shopping spree (well, maybe not so little) after figuring out his Paypal password. Dishing out the benjamins, Susan spent over $500 on flights and a hotel gift card, another $300 on a VIP trip to the Eiffel Tower and just shy...
