PayPal Crashes Most On Record After Shutting Millions Of “Bad Actor” Accounts, Abandons Long-Term User Goal

By Tyler Durden – February 2, 2022

PayPal, best known recently for aggressively deplatforming and demonetizing all voices which the woke liberal “cancel-culture” brigade disagrees with (this website included), crashed the most on record on Tuesday morning one day after it reported dismal results, slashing guidance and warning that it will no longer reach its long-term goal of 750 million active accounts by 2025, abandoning a goal that contributed to a jump in spending last year on sales campaigns.

The payments giant which was the original source of Elon Musk’s wealth, lowered its forecast for new customers after saying that “bad actors” were taking advantage of its incentives and rewards programs, and is also overhauling its marketing strategy as a result.

PayPal last year began offering its first ever sign-up incentives, handing out as much as $10 to encourage new customers to open an account. But the firm’s risk-management team – which apparently is made up of gullible 19-year-olds who could never anticipate such an outcome – discovered that many of the accounts were being created by bot farms. Shock!
