Your reputation could be at stake

What's worth more? A few quick bucks or a name that can be trusted on the internet? I recently joined one of those 'two dollar businesses' which is actually a legitimate sale of some e-books through an affiliate site. I only made one sale and unfortunately it was while I was on vacation. Came back to find my PayPal account limited because they didn't like the look of the scheme. I have had a PayPal account for 8 years and never a minute's trouble - till then! Much grovelling and apology later they have restored my account access but you just gotta be careful out there folks! If you're using PayPal, make sure the scheme doesn't upset their perception of 'pyramid' or 'get rich quick' schemes. As I said, this was a legitimate sale of an e-book bundle but they took a dim view.
