Sir / Madam
I recently made a donation of good will to Mr. Nathan Young for the
assisting of his brother Mr.Peter Young who was in a terrible accident
and lies unconscious in hospital. It is with great concern that I
hear your office is not allowing him and his family access to this
money. The statement from Mr.Young I received, including the sentence
"I am asking for donations to help my family with some of the medical
bills and the rebuilding of his apartment." means exactly that. I was
not misled! Such mindless beauracracy on your part indeed obstructs
this compassionate attempt by the family and the many well-wishers and
supporters of his cause.
For pity's sake and in the name of common sense and human decency, I
ask you, on behalf of the Young family, to urgently reconsider your
position, drop your suspicions and cautions and look carefully again
at this case.
If you do not immediately change your stance toward this case I shall
have no choice but to request a refund, lodge an official complaint
and then find a way to make my donation that actually reaches the
THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you so much from the bottom of my (black) heart. I cannot
express to you all how much your thoughtful donations mean to my
family and myself. My brother is an artist and a recluse. Pete had
very few friends until now. He spent his time with my father building
barns and at home painting with his dog Little John (who perished in
the fire). I am hoping that when he recovers enough to view these
emails he will realize that he was never alone in this battle. I want
each and everyone of you to meet him someday. As of now we are looking
at a year long hospital stay minimum. Pete's movement will be limited
even after he is released from the hospital as his skin grafts will
still be fragile. I don't know if he will be building barns anytime in
the next 2-3 years. All of his recent paintings were destroyed in the
fire. I am hoping with encouragement from all of you he will take
steps to becoming a full time artist. Good things will come from this
On a side note-
Paypal has put a hold on this relief account. Donations can still come
in but they can't be touched. They said they want a trust-fund or a
bank account set up in his name. They want proof that donations will
be used on Pete and this was not a internet scam. I completely
understand this concern from them. I went to my bank today and
attempted to set up a trust or joint account in his name but I can't
do this without his signature. Pete will not be able to sign anything
for the next couple months so basically this can't happen anytime soon.
I am disputing Paypal's distrust in this benefit. Paypal needs to
understand that I am going to use this money to help my family. They
seem to think it all needs to be in Pete's name because in their view
the money is going directly to him. I never stated that donations are
going directly to Pete, I said "I a m asking for donations to help my
family with some of the medical bills and the rebuilding of his
apartment." This is a key sentence. I believe that Paypal has no
right to freeze my account because I never stated any fraudulent
information (they even have my own bank info and social security #).
My family and I are the ones who will be paying the hospital bills and
rebuilding his life in the months to come.
If after reading this you would like to send a complaint to PayPal
this is the case # PP-258-506-821 and here is a email address
appeals@.... Please let them know you understand that "I a m
asking for donations to help my family with some of the medical bills
and the rebuilding of his apartment." Give PayPal an earful, they
actually hung up on me today.
