Hey guys, as someone who sort of helped initiate the recent trend in raffle sales on NS, I feel that it is only the right thing to post this in order to warn you all.
Today I got hit with an email from paypal stating that my sale on Newschoolers was in violation of the Acceptable Use Policy. Long story short, paypal does not condone the use of its services for raffles of any kind. As a result I have had to delete my raffle sale thread on NS, re-do the Acceptable Use Policy, and my paypal account is "limited" for who knows how long. Granted, I can still send and receive money while it is in its limited state, if the information I submitted is not accepted by paypal then my account could be terminated and I would lose all the money that is currently in it.
Don't make raffle sales. I thought it was a fun and creative idea and it was, but it does violate paypal policies and it WILL get you in trouble. Unless you can figure out some other money-collection system, I would avoid raffles on here entirely.
if you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
