Last summer I switched from Paypal to GPal after Paypal warned my FDI/SIOA colleague Pamela Geller that they were considering classifying her site Atlas Shrugs as a “hate site.” All through the summer and early fall, donations from Jihad Watch readers and SIOA supporters came in to GPal — but now months have gone by, and GPal has never made any of the requested transfers of those donations to the bank. Needless to say, this has put us in no inconsiderable bind. Even worse, GPal has responded only tardily and with soothing platitudes to repeated requests for information.
Pamela Geller and I are going to file complaints with all relevant legal authorities, and have switched our sites back to Paypal for the time being. Meanwhile, if you are doing business with GPal, be forewarned: with every passing day it is looking more and more like a giant Ponzi scheme.
Pamela has more details here.
