Sending Paypal as gift is not allowed at TCC. Despite the fact that we have posted this many, many times and it is listed as prohibited in our site rules we are still seeing requests for Paypal as a gift almost everyday... and these requests are often coming from established members.

Paypal is a company that provides a service, a service that they charge for. If you are going to use their service to purchase items here at TCC, you are expected to pay to use it. You would expect no less if you were providing a service for someone.

Effective immediately, any request for Paypal as a gift will result in a suspension of a minimum of 30 days.

Spread the word to your fellow TCC'ers, because pleading ignorance will not reduce the suspension.

Thank You,
Michael

If your user name is this color I'm afraid I'll have to pass on any proposed transactions at this time.

Some good points made, but I want to be very clear about this...

THIS IS NOT A NEW MEMBER PROBLEM

If it was, we wouldn't be handling it in this fashion. We are having this problem with established members, some who have been warned in the past. Some have been warned multiple times.

Out of the last dozen or so members I have contacted about this issue only one was new.

Well, it's just my opinion but 1 warning should be enough. I'm sure it didn't simply "slip their mind". Maybe those guys should have already received a lengthy suspension. Especially those who have been warned multiple times.

Thanks for clearing that up for us, though. I know you definitely didn't have to, and it's much appreciated. Being a new member myself though, not too long ago, I know I would have been turned off pretty quickly had I received a suspension for something I didn't even know was against the rules.
