Against Pay Pal

Pay Pal has taken advantage of many people and I just don't understand why certain Attorney will not handle this case for me and another words to say that its ok for this Company to screw people over and where is the justice when Big Companies like Pay pal can take money out of my pocket and really needed the money! Where is the justice??? Why is alright for this company to steal money??? How does this company keep doing this ?? Where are my rights ??? How can I get help??? Please is there a Attorney that is willing to take this on???

PayPal are Thiefs!

I have used PayPal for years and trusted them with my money, credit card numbers, personal information, etc.. One day I was notified by PayPal that some "suspicious" activity had occurred on my account. Since then my life has been ***. The activity was not the result of any purchases, selling, or anything at all on my part. In fact, I had not used PayPal for some time and was surprised to hear from them at all. Someone had breached their security and got access to my bank accounts. Only, that is not the worse- the worse part is the way they have handled the situation. They made me feel like the thief, when it is because of them that anything took place! They told me it was their "policy" to freeze my accounts- not refund my money- and make me wait two weeks for an answer from them whether or not they would return the stolen money. When I sign onto my PayPal Account and check on the status of the dispute- it says they are "Waiting on a response from the Seller"! OMG! What Seller- I Never bought anything! This is just real scary and I no longer even feel safe. My personal information has been breached and not only that- it is their "Policy" to not allow me to close my account until they come to a resolution. In other words, the very people who allowed my personal information to go out- also still have control over the said information. This is a true outrage.

PayPal Offers No Seller Protection

On March 25th I sold a home audio system on eBay for $330 with payment handled via PayPal. Funds were received that evening but were put on hold until item was delivered. The next day I took the audio system to my local UPS store where they packaged and shipped it; item was delivered to buyer on March 29th and funds were released to me on April 5th. On April 11th, nearly two weeks after the buyer received the item, she filed a dispute stating that item was "not as described" and that it had been damaged during shipment. The fact that she waited so long without attempting to contact me prior set off the fraud alert button in my head. I send this woman two communications through PayPal, the first asking for photographic proof which she refused to provide and the second asking her to return the damaged item to me at which time I'd issue a refund, she refused that too. PayPal meanwhile took it upon themselves to issue her a full refund. I contacted their customer service and fraud departments but was given nothing but the run-around. They claim that in order to be issued a refund the buyer must provide proof that the item was shipped back to seller. That's apparently not the case since they dipped into my bank account to fund the refund. Meanwhile, I'm out $330 and a nearly brand new Bose that some lady "purchased" for free.

Very upset consumer

I never received my order.I kept emailing them about my order never received a response from anyone.Paypal had to reimburse me for my order.i had been looking for these for years and was excited to hear that SOMEONE FINALLY OFFERED THEM. i rushed at the chance to get my order in. being that this was a birthday gift for my boyfriend whom had these back east growing up as a kid. we looked for a long time,even went on the hostess website to see if they offered them with no luck.then i happened upon the site and i was excited to say the least.to make a long story short,i was very displeased with this company. i would recommend that they remove their very MISLEADING site and would not recommend ANYONE doing business with them. thank you.

PayPal Will Not Protect You!!!

I used PayPal to buy a DVD Ripping program online. It was a download program. After two weeks of trying to get this program to work and 6 or 7 emails to the company with no help I repeatedly asked for a refund. I got nowhere. I the called PayPal thinking they would help. A claim was opened and then almost immediately closed citing that they were unable to help me because it was a download. If it was an actual program they sent in the mail they could help. SO...even though PayPay was used I am NOT getting any king of support that they claim they give. Not only did I get screwed by the first company I am getting screwed by PayPal too

I placed an order and was stalled for a few months by USA (Lynn) telling me it's on back order one time and here is a substitute another time to it's still on back order to sorry we're broke and can't return your money. I called Pay Pal and warned them that this was a scam. They told me it was three months have past and they couldn't do anything for me. I have asked for my money back several times since and today my email was undeliverable. I am pissed. Can anyone still order from USA webite? Cindy

PayPal Pay Later credit company

I am pissed that this company PayPal has added the funds that I paid from my own debit card for purchases to their account and know are charging me along with the moneys that I spent using their credit to me. They stopped my credit amount from them and I used my own banks debit card to purchase items and they added it to their account and are charging me for that moneys. This has got to be the biggest ripoff that I can think of. They will not get away with this I am not going to pay them the differance between what I truely owe them and what I bought using my own debit card.

Ya know? You know like holding a gun to someones head and telling them to pay up!

To the one who likes PayPal Pay Later you must be the one who is not very intelligent to use a company that robs everyone that uses their services. I beleive you should re-evaluate your intellectual capacities ( hopefully not to big of words) for using such a criminal service that will charge one moneys for using their own credit/debit card.

A few corrections:

"To the one who likes PayPal Pay Later[.Y]ou must be the one who is not very intelligent[,] to use a company that robs everyone that [who] uses their services. I beleive [believe] you should re-evaluate your intellectual capacities [capacity]( hopefully not to [too] big of words [huh?]) for using such a criminal service that will charge one moneys [money] for using their own credit/debit card."

You should not question anyone's intelligence.

I have been using paypal for a very long time, and have never been charged a fee. When I pay 90 days same as cash with them I have never been charged a penny as long as I make the minimum amount due each month (around $10.00) and pay the whole amount off by the end of the 90 day agreement.

Paypal pay later is fantastic. It allows me to buy items that I usually could not afford. They do not charge money to your Debit card.

I don't know how "pissed off" came up with that idea. I guess some people just aren't very intelligent.

Paypal, Inc. Scams me

On January 10, 2010 I received a letter from ER Solutions, Inc. stating I owed $348.99 to Paypal for an account I did not open. I called Paypal that day and spoke to their credit department at which point Ray, told me he would put in a request to have the account reviewed. I called this afternoon and was told that I need to pay $348.99 to ER Solutions, Inc. and they could not prove it was fraud. I never opened this account nor did I create the email addresses associated with this account. This is the 2nd time this has happened, where someone stole my identity and opened an account with Paypal, and this is the second instance where they've sent me to collections for an account I did not open. I've put credit blocks on my social security everything 90 days for the past 7 years because I knew of fraudulent activity and that someone had my identity. Now I'm being told I must pay an amount that I'm not responsible for. I cannot believe I am being scammed by Paypal and they are able to get away with this.

I have had a couple of problems using paypal and as others have stated there is no help from them. To address the problem of being forced to use them by ebay and others, maybe it is time for a class action to put them in place.

You know this country is going to *** in a hand basket because no one does anything to make things right. IT IS TIME TO TAKE IT BACK.

#128038

I've been through the same thing with this scam of a company! I just got a $330 balance owed from ER Solutions on an account I previously had with Paypal.What happened was I was the victim of identity theft and noticed the fraudulent charges, I contacted my bank and paypal(mistake) Instead of reimbursing my funds, for reasons known only to them they took MORE money out of my account!

I managed to close my bank account with "only" a negative $330 balance....but this is $330 I don't owe them, they owe me about $1500 they yanked out of my account. So 3 years after all this happens I get this letter from ER Solutions. I haven't been on ebay(had 300+ feedback) or used paypal since that.

HOW CAN THIS SCAM OF A COMPANY STILL EXIST? Ebay killed the golden goose forcing you to use paypal as a seller(which is illegal)

I couldn't agree more. Paypal makes money thanks to the crooks on EBAY .

Just try and get in touch with them!! it's a laugh. More crooked than a dog's hind legs. By the way Paypal doent't accept proofs of any kind.

Too cumbersome a burden to comply with. You live and learn.

In sum paypal's ad: just misleading publicity. Yes do spread the word

Paypal does not protect you or your wallet

For years I have been shopping on line with confidence using my PayPal buying "shield" Yesterday I filled a dispute with paypal requesting my money back for a dvd I had ordered through www.ecrater. /jfsales51 What I recieved was a bootleg pirated copy. Paypal "investigated and closed" my claim within 90 min of me filling it. When I called Paypal I was informed that of the thousands and thousands of sites that use the PayPal option the only one I am protected one is Ebay. Unless I never recieve the item. So according to Paypal I did recieve it but who cares that it is a homemade illegal dvd... I lose. The more research I did the more I felt like a fool using PayPal. So America please use caution when using paypal becuase you are NOT protected at all even for illegal activites and scams. I have closed my account and will now only use my charge charge so that I can have at least some recourse. Check this out paypalsucks.com it will really open your eyes beforethe holiday shopping season.

Tout à fait d accord. Aucune protection de la part de Paypal...

Un vendeur m a vendu un disque ; bonne pochette mais pas le bon disque à l intérieur. Il fallait que je paie aussi le retour de l article... non remboursé bien sûr. J ai proposé les photos comme preuves ...

AUCUNE REACTION du côté du vendeur/VOLEUR qui collectionne les plaintes.

Mais il faut savoir que PAYPAL EMARGE AUSSI SUR LES TRANSACTIONS DES VOLEURS ET DES ESCROCS ET QUE CA NE LES INTERESSE PAS DE DEFENDRE LES VICTIMES; JE PENSE QUE CE MANQUEMENT EXPOSE PAYPAL A L ACCUSATION DE PUBLICITE MENSONGERE;;;... UN JOUR CA LEUR RETOMBERA SUR LE NEZ MEME CACHE AU LUXEMBOURG....

Without going into detail, basically the same thing happened to me this week. I ordered a DRIED FLORAL fro Heart of Heaven Gifts with Paypal.

I was sent FAKE Flowers on the wreath and I filed, the seller disputed and PayPal closed the claim.

What's the use in filing if Paypal does nothing? I too will close my account and use my credit card.

Pal Pal Lawsuit Time!

If there is anyone out there who is ready and able to start a class-action lawsuit against Paypal for their illegal and unethical practices, please contact me at frogskyn@***.com I lost my house (granted it was a rental) when paypal, without warning, held funds from emergency ebay sales I made to get cash to pay my rent. They held my funds so that I couldnt even afford to ship the items I sold! I believe there are enough of us out there that are being screwed by this company that we can file a successful class action and get restitution from this unethical and fraudulent company! Please, lets take this seriously and ACT NOW! -Marcus

Paypal requires you to have 100 feedback, not 10.

#140879

It will never fly. Don't waste your time or money that you obviously don't have.

#122594

Paypal uses their position online to force their political agenda. They are far left and punish anyone who does not agree with them or accepts money (or sends money) to people or sites they have a philosophical problem with. Be aware, Paypal is being run by Social Progressives and Socialists

#117706

Paypal does this until you get 10 feedbacks on Ebay. Once you get 10 feedbacks they release the money an don't hold any more funds.

They also release the funds on each item as proof of delivery is confirmed.

I agree, they should make this known to people as they sign up to sell on ebay. It is buried in the fine print under their terms and conditions.

It leaves you no money to ship your items and they don't care. Be aware of this before you decide to sell on eBay.

#115363

Yes, I am in

#84277

I am in. Doing some research right now myself. Paypal is a total scam.

Paypal shipped to old address

Paypal shipped to an address I haven't had for five years. They had my correct address and they damned sure knew which credit card to charge. When you try to contact them, they put you through hoops that are impossible to accomplish. They wanted transaction numbers that the computer rejects when you try to enter them. The service person that I finally got to talk to was sarcastic and treated me like I was 12 and not capable of understanding what she meant. This used to be a good company - maybe they got too big but I will never deal with them again.

Paypal is tricking me and have all my personal details

ere is my story guys I have opened account with paypal few days before and opened with a name as ABC because my clients know me by these name and bank account and everything with credit card etc was by other name. I attached 2 bank accounts and 1 credit card to my account. My account was verified preimium They limited it after 5 days in which I had 1220$. After sending all docs like bank statement, address of proof etc they asked me for ssn number to verify. I tried putting on there website and verifying it and it always gave error because my ssn name and name on account where different. They told me to scan the ssn and send the ssn to them. I am new to these country so I just wanted to remove my limitation and get the money. SO I uploaded as a scan copy and after all these they denied my appeal and told me that my account will be on limitation forever. I have removed all funds from it by refunding clients and asking them to send to some other account to send the funds. But my question is out of the clients who paid me if none of them dispute and my account is remaining limited forever and assuming i dont want to open any other paypal account am I fine. I just want to make sure taht I dont go in any legal issue because uploading the ssn. Please help me
