Team Toffer, a eroge developer, has had all of their Kickstarter funds removed by PayPal. This saga started about six month ago when PayPal locked their account due to being “related to sexual services” and withheld their Kickstarter cash to the tune of around $34,000.
PayPal has permanently locked our account and remaining Kickstarter raised funds for LIP! Lewd Idol Project.
Today it was us, tomorrow it could be you or any of your favorite lewd content creators.

Now it seems that PayPal has taken these funds entirely for “Damages.” I’m not 100% sure of the legality of all this, but PayPal is not a bank and probably isn’t subject to banking rules. This should be a lesson to all content creators of lewd content. PayPal is not your friend and, if you use it move funds to a bank ASAP. If you want to help out Team Toffer consider purchasing one of their games on JAST, Denpasoft, Fakku, or Steam.
Well guys, now it’s official… P*yPal took away all of our remaining funds for Lewd Idol Project that were funded in a legitimate way via Kickstarter after six months. This is so frustrating.. 😔
Please DO NOT use this payment processor anymore if you’re a lewd content creator. pic.twitter.com/9nigSAHg0V
