I don’t know how long have I been gone and I’m not planning to make a blog post for this ’cause I was planning my next post to be meaningful and shit but the thought of ‘I-just-had-to’ came into my mind.
I have been working for 6 months already as a freelance web designer and developer. I was earning money like a drug dealer because of this and I am damn proud of it. I was earning more than those who work in the office. They earn 25 thousand a month, I earn that in a night or two.
So I get paid through Paypal. I paid $15 for my account to be verified ’cause a lot of Paypal encashers (That’s not a real word okay) prefer verified accounts. Verifying a Paypal account here in the Philippines is tedious especially if you do not have a credit card. After the long wait, my account was verified and I felt like a VIP. I’m like “Please encash my Paypal funds. My Paypal is verified nigga.”
Last May 18, I worked 18 hours to finish a website for my client. I got paid a whooping $800 on my Paypal account. I was planning to encash it right away but the payment was done 2 in the morning here. So I had no choice but to sleep first and have it encashed in the morning. That was May 20 already. May 20, 2 AM.
May 20, 10 AM, Paypal informed me the most horrible news I’ve ever heard. “Your Paypal account is limited.” I was awakened with that horrible e-mail (I wake up 5 in the afternoon and sleep 4 in the morning. Sometimes, my phone wakes me up for emails and texts, like this one) I just had to rush in front of my laptop to confirm everything.
And there it was, my account frozen and my solid $1700 on hold. I immediately asked my mom to look for the documents needed for verification and I emailed them regarding my account limitation.
After 5 hours of agony, they replied that I need to supply tracking numbers for my payments. How the fuck would I enter a tracking number IF I DID NOT SHIPPED ANY ITEM, ‘CAUSE I’M A GOD DAMN DESIGNER?! I was furious while typing my reply. I wanted to curse the fuck out of those bitches.
That was May 20, it’s now May 23 and still no response.
If this will last for a week I’ll threat the fuck out of them. And I am serious about this ’cause I worked hard to earn that money. There is no way, hell no way, that I’ll let them get away with this. I fucking swear!
