Fighting Paypal by costing its site money

(Edited)

Closing my account with Paypal is an unsatisfying way of fighting back. Wouldn't it make more sense to figure out a way to fine Paypal $2,500 for everytime they banned an account?

I imagine Paypal pays a bulk pricing for sending us SMSes and negotiates a nice discount over what we may pay the telcos. Browsing over to
https://www.sms-magic.com/sms-pricing/

I popped the prices into a spread sheet and see that Cape Verde has the highest cost for sending SMSes. $0.389

I found several phone numbers in Cape Verde. Some fo these are Fax numbers. Being fax numbers, no user will be bothered by an sms that they cannot use.
238-232-8670, 238-0-615000, 238-2-620602, 238-2611325, 238-2326741 and 238-2311054.

Now when you log in you can put one of these phone numbers in as your SMS third party auth.

Making this a program that runs 24/7 and 10000s of failed logins per second is an exercise for the reader.

The whole PayPal thing is just mindboggline... I have to think there are good reasons why commerce giant eBay "divorced" PayPal, a couple of years back. I don't deal muh with PayPal anymore, as a result...

Meanwhile, there's the Kroger/Albertson's grocery merger to keep an eye on... supermarket monopoly, anyone?
