well... i received below email 5 min ago...

It will be a pain in the a$$ for me to send money overseas!!!


Thank you for being a valued PayPal user.

We wish to inform you that effective 31 March 2010, you will not be able to send funds using the "Send Money" function for non-commercial transactions only, until further notice.

The changes to our personal payment services are necessary in order for us to comply with new regulatory requirements in Japan. This does not affect anyone outside of Japan sending money to any Japanese residents.

Please note that you will also continue to be able to shop online and use the PayPal services for the payment of goods and services as you normally would.

This restriction of services only applies to non-commercial transactions such as the sending of money to a family member for living allowance.

We deeply regret any inconvenience this temporary restriction of service may cause you.

We will update you as to when our personal payment services will be available again.

We thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely yours

I am tired of the guys in Paypal... actually they have been preventing me from sending money once in a while (1 of 5)
The reason they gave is that due to their security policy in their system, it will prevent payment in a random manner.
I am in IT field and have NEVER seen such weird system before...

What else can I say? guess I will have to seek for alternatives
