Paypal - Account Review from Auburndale, Florida

Paypal is a horrible company. They waste your time close yourpaypal account when you ask themto leave it open and they make you givepersonal info to close and account. Wasted an 2 hrs of my time with no remorse. They hite incompetent idiots that barely graduated highschool to waste you time and try and steal your money for purchases if items you never got. But they still charge fees even if fraud is commited to you through there site.

It's taking them a long time to fix a minor error.

I signed up for a Paypal account and unfortunately Listed my U.S. address in India Instead (Honest Mistake). I called two times in an attempt to fix this error and spoke to two agents ," in a foreign land ". Both said email compliance@***.com. I emailed them on Thursday 02/26/2015 and found out through one of their reps that a ticket was not even submitted (This call was made Monday 03/22/2015). The guy said " ( I just submitted a ticket to the compliance department). Four calls so far , 9 Representatives I spoke with and all I got was Lie after Lie. This is the company we give our business to and what do they do THEY LIE TO US.

False advertisement

I had a very negative experience with Paypal smart connect. DO NOT EVER USE THIS!!!!! I used my paypal smart connect to make a few purchases without any incidents so I figured this would be no problem also. I check the website the day before just to make sure I can use Paypal smart connect anywhere Paypal is accepted. so after doing my due diligence I decided to purchase tickets through Stubhub. Mind you my payment preference in Paypal is to connected to the Paypal smart connect. why is it that I proceed with the transaction and the entire amount is removed from my checking account. of course I was not happy about this. I then call Paypal customer support or lack there of and was told if I wanted a refund I would have to go through Stubhub, ok I can see this point. I then asked the customer service person if Paypal smart Connect is accepted everywhere Paypal is accepted. she proceeds to tell me I can only use smart connect is that payment option is available during the transaction. huh? I checked the website, so I decided to cut and paste the exact verbage is as follows: Where can I use PayPal Smart Connect? You can use PayPal Smart Connect to fund purchases on eBay listings that accept PayPal and anywhere else PayPal payments are accepted. No where in this statement does it say only if Paypal smart connect appears as an option for payment. THIS IS FALSE ADVERTISEMENT IN EVERY WAY SHAPE AND FORM. Needless to say I will pay off my account and use them little to none at all if possible.

Donations to Christian Organizations Flagged as Fraudulent By Ebay/PayPal

My Ebay/PayPal was banned and all money confiscated and account records destroyed. I can no longer buy and sell on ebay even using American Express as VIP merchant account. I was told that the donations to Christian organizations were fraudulent; that I was engaged in fraud; my computer business is fraudulent and the the transactions for computer parts and computers also fraudulent. Of course none of this is true in any regard. I set paypal up in 2005 0r 2006 but they say 2012. Ebay/PayPal not required to keep financial records of transactions after 30 days. Money sent to me by a Christian ministry in Jan.2014 was immediately embezzled out of my account by Ebay/Paypal. Credit card transactions were manipulated by Ebay to show erroneous transactions. Ebay employees setup a line of credit in my identity which they are using to enrich themselves. Erroneous debts have been reported to credit bureaus as an instrument of extortion to extract monies to return things to good standing. Ebay/Paypal employees use phishing techniques in their overseas operations and intimidation to restore good status and extort monies from me. They tell you they need DOB and SSN and your current bank accounts. Ebay/Paypal have told me that they do not have to adhere to American laws or laws of other countries. Maliciously provided erroneous information in active concert to conduct fraud. I have been slandered and defamed. My business is harmed. Ebay/Paypal have told me that their is no due process under any laws. They make the laws I am told. Ebay/Paypal in clear violation of state, federal and laws of other countries. Ebay/Paypal show total disdain for myself and other customers by engaging in fraud on a global scale. I strongly suspect Ebay/Paypal using their own employees to act as phantom buyers to defraud customers with non-receipt of items from Ebay which then are sold by Ebay itself with illicit financial gains by the phantom buyer operation.

It's because your a thief. Using people's stolen credit cards.

Even stealing from your dead father. Your day will come.

Using the Lord to get money. You should be banned from civilization.

Long time paypal customer finds out that paypal is not to be trusted

Gosh I had something similar to the above mentioned situations with paypal. I use to sell coins on ebay and of course used paypal, I had a paypal debit card and all. One of my friends daughter had a paypal account and had money on it, she wanted her money but didn't have a paypal debit card, she also didn't want to wait for days to get the check from paypal, so my friend had her send the money to my account. At first I was a little upset but then thought what could the harm be, after all the money was in my account, the transfer had cleared, so I pulled the money out for her minus the fees. Two or three days later paypal froze my account and charged my bank for the money. When I called paypal they would not tell me anything at all as to why they did this only that the money had been sent back to the buyer account. Wow I am a single mom trying to make my way through college and am scraping pennies, to say they least my account with paypal closed I could never cover the amount they took over $400.00 I still owe them and have a mark on my credit because of this. Paypal totally enabled this girl to rip me off fraudulently way to go paypal, treated me, a excellent customer of theirs for a long time, like I was the criminal and believed no questions asked the person who had a new account that had hardly done any business with them. I never have tried to use paypal nor will I ever again, I also fanatically warn everyone against them and tell them my story!

Fraud,extortion,sale/giveaway my financial records and personal data to unknown entities known only to paypal overseas; banned from operating on ebay because I will not pay money to paypal for a debt

Paypal and stated they paid for an item last may 2014 for old laptop. Records from ebay and paypal stated my credit card was charged. Ebay owns Paypal or vica-versa now. Ebay doesn't keep records of transactions after 90 days and it is the same with Paypal. Paypal doesn't want to accept their own records and records from ebay last year as confirmation that I paid for the item. The paypal account has been locked out so I can't access it as they have total control of the account and I am unable to update or even access it but they me the opposite. Also paypal and ebay have given all my personal data like bank account information, credit card information, social security number and birthdate to individuals in foreign countries. They deny that but the people at the paypal customer service phone identify themselves as employees of paypal and ebay. They asking me to corroborate my D.O.B., social security number and update and/or corroborate your banking information. I don't ever recall release all this information. Paypal/ebay obtained the information illegally and has disseminated all of it to people in India, China, malaysia, Philippines, etc..People overseas obey what ever laws in their countries but not American laws. This will definitely take many years plus you will have to pay legal fees to fight to get It is a total violation of many federal and state laws. Paypal has told me many times that they are not required to provide documents to financial transactions and are protected under some "Grant Huntley Act" I have to post the recorded conversations with paypal in the Philippines, Malaysia, Mexico, etc. on the net. I am required to give my DOB when speaking with anypaypal/ebay representative. I am very sure I never setup an account like this with ebay and/paypal. I am just one person with little money or resources trying to pursue a business with selling computers. But these big corporations like pay/pal are out to endanger your financial and personal saftey by selling/and or giving away of their customers' financial data. Paypal has no regard for anybody that uses their services and the transaction is completely opposite of secure. They have your information for LIFE. There is no customer service here in the United States to speak too as all operations are overseas. Most of the time paypal will not tell you what country they are in. Don't EVER I MEAN EVER PROVIDE YOUR BANKING INFORMATION ! They can steal you blind literally only leaving you to sue and file fraud complaints. I am unable to close my paypal accounts and they have submitted debt to collectors which they can not substantiate. My ebay account is in bad standing now as ebay and paypal are one entity now that many people don't realize. I can not buy or sell any electronics now until paypal/ebay receive money for a debt that they will not provide documentation for as it is after 90 days and also quoting some "Grant Huntley Act" that they are not required anymore to providing or keeping records. Basically this coming against me personally and financially because I am barred from having a business with ebay and am blocked by paypal based on unsubstantiated grounds. I believe all of this is illegal. I am suppose to have rights under American laws from companies that use extortion like tactics and operate as a total monopoly. I am blocked by paypal/ebay from having verified merchant where I could process payments sale/purchase because paypal is the only form of payment they will use. Eventhough I am an honest businessman, I am blocked from conduction online business by big corporations with no regard for me, American laws. I would still like to use ebay and instead use squareD or some other option to take and make payments instead of being forced to do business online by being forced to use paypal as the only way to make and accept payments. A representative with paypal in China said that they do not have to go by American laws as it is in the use agreement or both paypal and ebay. I was told when I signed up for both paypal and ebay that I signed away all my protections under American law. Such a contract is illegal and can not be enforced. Steve Jolinski Stevejolinski.Com

This agency is a joke.They have allowed PayPal, GE Capital Sychroney Bank to put your account overdue & charge you late fees as early as three days. There are documents on this site that shows they can make you pay more then you owe & the extra money you paid just disappears.

They take your monthly payment & can call it "Late Fee Refund" they can take "Debt Cancelation Fees" & add them to your card security fees etc.,etc.

& continue to defraud the consumers. FTC & DFI along with the OCC forward complaints to this agency CFPB who does NOTHING in fact they send complaints to companies that are not even mentioned in the complaint.

this company to refund my money and stop using the PayPal logo, due to having no affiliation with PayPal, stop misrepresenting as a PayPal Affiliate

Unintentionally set up $1,500 Credit line

I was trying to pay for an item on Ebay. The seller only accepts paypal. I had to reset my password. When the next dialog box for continuing the transaction came up it asked for DOB and last 4 of ss#. No where in the box did it indicate I was applying for credit. Took 3 calls and 90 minutes to close the account. I have a credit card on file with paypal that I thought I was using, which they make it extremely difficult to navigate to and use. I had no idea that PayPal needs to resort to scams to get business.

Stealing my money

I set up a link to my bank account so I could pay my bill since they didn't transfer my financial information when they transferred my account from Billmelater. Apparently I mistakenly set it up from savings instead of checking, so the payment was rejected. I called Paypal when I saw the bank charge and the representative explained the the account had been linked to my savings account. He stated that he could use my old financial information from Billmelater to make a onetime phone payment. I didn't want my payment to be late so I made the payment. I also asked him to stop their computer from presenting the first payment again automatically since they now had the required monthly payment. He stated their computer would not present it again. Well, this morning I incurred another $30 charge from my bank because Paypal tried to take the first payment again. I called Paypal again and this representative was a total ***. He stated they couldn't stop the computer from accessing my account until they got the first payment and it would continue to do so until it got the money. I explained that I had made the monthly payment with a second payment (on time!). He said that didn't matter and then accused me of deliberately paying my bill from an account that didn't have sufficient funds. To stop the ongoing attempts to access the account by PayPal I had to block my savings account which cost me an additional $15 dollars.

All of these reviews have documents uploaded. And now GE Capital Retail Bank, GE Money Bank, GE Capital Retail Money Bank & now Synchrony Bank the new name which is the fourth (4) name of these "EVIL ITS" or what ever they are called are being investigated by the United States Postal Inspector for fraud through the mail this pertains to late fees charged "Illegally".

You can also see this in the clip.

You can also read the latest upload #586688 It is called "Adventures in Pay Pal Land" documents of just how bad they are
