Default Minecraft and Minecraft Alpha Dev shafted by Paypal

Markus Persson (Notch), the developer of indie title Minecraft on the 10th of this month that PayPal had limited his account "for unspecified reasons". The "alpha" version of Minecraft has been up for presale on the Minecraft website for a few months now, but Minecraft got a mention in a TF2 Blog, which sent sales for the game sky rocketting to over 100k (currently 147k+ sales). PayPal had limited Persson's account due to "a suspicious withdrawal or deposit", then "asked (him) for a bunch of vague documents". Since then the account has balllooned to over 600,000, which Persson's cannot access. PayPal also told Markus that if their investigation uncovered anything untoward, they would be keeping the cash.

Dirty dogs huh?? I think it'll all turn out fine, but I wouldn't put it passed them to believe that they are gonna hold it a couple of weeks under a weak pretense just to reinvest and make a few thousand for themselves...

Financial institutions... All the same!! Nature of the beast I guess?!
