That's very interesting.  I wonder how they knew that you were hosting a
Tor relay.

Did you ever enter anything in the notes field of a PayPal transfer?  I
learned the hard way that if you enter certain keywords (gun, bomb,
drugs, etc.) into the notes/reference field of a PayPal transfer they
will quickly suspend your account.
