I've been playing Pandemic Legacy with 3 friends from work.

I've ended up organizing meeting rooms for our lunchtime games and as we work for a technology development consultancy, room bookings tend to be the project name which have no connection to the client name or project scope.

So my booking rooms for "Panda Legs" a couple of times a month over lunch hasn't been anything odd for what the room calendar normally looks like.

However we're getting near the end now (just about to move into November) and so a couple of my friends reminded me that they'd like to pay their share of the box price as we'd forgotten about that when we got started.

So they sent me £14 each via paypal to cover their share, but one of them put our room booking title of "Panda Legs" in the paypal details field.

And he got this message...



...saying that his paypal account was being blocked due to "purchase or sale of embargoed goods"!

It took only a short while to explain to the people at PP that he wasn't buying endangered mammals legs!

Hilarious.

And I'm impressed Paypal is so diligent. Of course, the person actually purchasing panda legs would probably put something much less conspicuous in the field. Like "Board game".

The response would have been interesting if your friend had used "infectious diseases" instead.
