EBay Inc.'s (EBAY) PayPal division has restricted some accounts due to wagering on the NCAA basketball tournament, Bloomberg News reported Wednesday.

Some users received emails stating that "it has been determined that you are in violation of PayPal's Acceptable Use Policy regarding your sales/offers of March Madness sports pool," Bloomberg reported. The emails request that users sign an "Acceptable Use Policy affidavit" to regain full account access, Bloomberg reported.

A PayPal spokeswoman declined to comment on how alleged gamblers were identified, Bloomberg reported. The spokeswoman said: "PayPal follows all the legal and regulatory rules in the U.S. as it relates to gambling."
