A co-worker's PayPal was frozen because he sent me money for lunch. We went Little Havana[1], his note on the transaction was "Little havana". PayPal held the transaction and froze the account because he used the word "havana".

Mirrors the experience of one of my friends. Venmo took almost a year to clear a 10$ transaction because the note said "Persian restaurant".


I guess you're lucky your account wasn't frozen too?


It honestly may have been, I had no money in it, and didn't try to do anything with it until after the money came through when I transferred it out.
