PayPal cant speak english or help me with the scam on my acct

Someone hacked my ebay account and way ordering stuff and charging my paypal..I had a old bank account attached to my paypal since i hadnt updated it.. so it had like $5 in it. Anyway after I notified ebay and paypal that the acct had been hacked and I wanted the pending charged removed paypal said they couldnt help me. They couldnt remove the charges nor give me my money back and if my back acct. overdrafted, that it was my fault. So i had to transfer money from one acct to anoter to pay for someone elses stuff so I wouldnt overdraft. All pay pal told me is , I could add another bank acct or card to my account and they would charge that one after my bank account overdrafted. I could hardly understand any of this because these foregioners could barely speak english, so I dont think they can understand the problem of an overdrafting account. Horrible customer service. I asked to speak to her manager and he was even ruder.

Lets Kill Paypal and Ebay

Has PayPal placed a 21 Day or 180 Day Hold on ALL your funds out of the blue? Did you get the: "Get a Subpoena" reply when you asked why? ( If you were lucky enough to even GET a reply ) This is most likely the reason why you found my site, and I am here to tell you, that PayPal and eBay WILL be held accountable for this! On May 12th 2010, a Class Action Lawsuit WAS filed against PayPal and its sister company eBay for their acts of Holding YOUR money, without justification, reasonable cause to do such and without any explanation. You can view the Court Document by clicking Here Tens of thousands of people have been victimized, financially ruined and or choked out of business due to PayPal's "systematic and arbitrary" freezing of people's money, without cause, reason or explanation. The reasons for PayPal & eBay to due such, seem to be clear by those whom have fell victim to these 2 companies: Greed and Profits! Just think of all the INTEREST PayPal earns on victims money over the 180 Days they hold it! We're talking about MULTI-MILLIONS of Dollars, some of which is YOUR money, earning THOUSANDS of dollars DAILY for PayPal, while YOU suffer without! Then, when ( or if ) they decide to give you back your money after they generate interest off of it, they'll GLADLY keep the interest earned! ( And maybe give themselves a nice FAT raise while they're at it! ) If this infuriates you, as much as it does the rest of us, and you want to be part of the Class Action Lawsuit against these 2 "companies", just contact the Law Firm listed below to have your name added to the Lawsuit. Please mention the "" website, as this is where it all began, and how the Class Action came to life. FREED & WEISS, LLC 1-866-779-9610 702 347 8606

I'd be most happy to see Paypal die.. they have stolen enough money from us, its time to do something.

I personally have fired them as my client. They renigged on their agreement to receive money for me and then give it to me, for a fee.

I've paid my fees, but they are keeping my money, and as long as they *** well want to. They are unethical liars.

They have on multiple occasion’s posed as other people when they are getting truthful reviews trying to make themselves look better'. The owner is extremely shady and will lie to you at every turn|. Sometimes you get what you pay for and with Atlantic Sea Farms it is cheap for a reason'. They have multiple issues with their coral, fish, inverts and packaging|. They are moving to a new location and they are trying to revamp the business but they are also trying to sell their livestock out of a industrial location to the local public which is illegal, but that is for another conversation with the local authorities". They are not legitimate on any level, do not believe anything they say and look out for posts that only say good things posted by the people that are associated with them,.

  Comments (19)1. Written by Big *** on May 29, 2011 You must either have a little *** or be really short but best guess is both. Grow up...Report2. Written by concerned customer on May 23, 2011 What I find interesting is that all the cheerleaders are coming to this site all the sudden. I think that the original post might be right partially. This is just another example of a company who can’t take criticism. If you are in business you have to take in the bad and the good. If these are actually real people they are local which means #1 they did not get the items shipped to them, #2 they are not a good example to recognize because it is not shipped, #3 they were probably told to put up the reviews because the truth hurts.Report3. Written by Thomas on May 20, 2011 +1 on Jimmy always being a great retailer. You will find those hornets grow well also, I started with 3 from him 6 weeks ago before his move and now I have 17. TomReport4. Written by The Real Todd on May 20, 2011 Yeah, Jimi's new place is starting to come together nicely. Was in there with Ian today - picked up some Purple Hornets (thanks for the hook up man!). Ian was a little bummed that Brody wasn't there, but he was happy since all of Jimi's fish are like dogs anyway Report5. Written by Lee on May 20, 2011 Swung by Atlantic Sea Farms and saw Jimmy, place looks great, picked up some Zoos and an awesome candy cane. Thank you Jimmy.   He has a great setup, if you haven't been there you should swing by and take a look.  LeeReport6. Written by ole salty on May 20, 2011 stopped by the new place to day. looking good in there picked up a few sps today and will most likely be there again before the week is out. Great prices as usual.Report7. Written by michael on May 5, 2011 all corals were in bad shape out of 14 corals 2 made it poor quality will not order again cant even get ahold of to resolve out my $$$$$$$Report8. Written by Mike on April 30, 2011 I went to the new shop this weekend wow! I was amazed at how much much corals he had. Dont believe this *** posted on here its not true. If your skeptical go there in person and check it out. The person on here posting all this negative stuff is just someone whos obviously mad because there losing business to atlantic sea farms.Report9. Written by Dillon on April 21, 2011 I am not sure about the new place, but I did not care for the greenhouse. It was not really for customers in my opinion like what has been said here. I would suffice to say that even the new location probably is lackluster as well. People are going to be nice and tell him to his face it is nice but when the leave they are saying wow what a dump. If I were to measure0 to 10 the level of professionalism it would be a 6 or 7, the coral is a 5 to 6, the physical store a 3 to 4, the fish 4 to 5, filtration, 2 to 3, the rock 4 to 5 and I did not see any of the equipment so I cannot rate it but it is the same thing that anyone else can get so I guess it would be as good as the equipment out of the box is.Report10. Written by SPSguy on March 31, 2011 I like ASF but I will agree with some of the comments. It is small and nothing above ordinary. It is a great place to look around but don’t expect to find much in the way of high end corals. I am not sure if they sell fish but there was some there, again nothing special. The pricing is in line with some of the online people and cheap for the Hampton Roads area. I would say that it may be worth the trip and it will be a better experience than going to Reef Chief.Report function x () { return; } function ac_smilie(thesmile) { document.akocommentform.comment.value += " "+thesmile+" "; document.akocommentform.comment.focus(); } function validate(){ if (document.akocommentform.comment.value==''){ alert("Please insert at least a comment related to the topic!"); } else if (document.akocommentform.acname.value==''){ alert("Validate name"); }else { document.akocommentform.action = 'index.php/comment'; document.akocommentform.submit(); } }Comments on Atlantic Sea Farms is a Scam!• Keep the topic of messages relevant to the subject.• Personal attacks will be deleted.• No Links or Scripts.Name:Comment: Code:* I wish to be contacted by email regarding additional commentsPrev - Next >>

PayPal has dominated merchants but won't allow account changes

We have not used PayPal since changing e-mail address and phone number and now we are 'permanently locked out'. After a frustrating entire day with P/P Customer (non)service, we ended up having to cancel the account because they can't change the e-mail and phone number (what?). They told us at one point that everything was changed and issued a code number that would finish the changes. It didn't work. They said that they would cancel the account and that we should open a new one. We tried to open a new account but P/P tells us that we are already registered with the NEW e-mail address (what?). Guess we won't be using any merchants demanding Pay (not your)Pal.

Paypal Account


PayPal froze my funds for no reason. Then asked for a picture of my passport, social security card amd more. After I provided all of this for their ridiculous demands, they left my account frozen anyways. I was told I could still refund people who sent me money so I sent out refunds so they could return the money by check. But then paypal went on to take the money out of my bank account, in an unauthorized withdrawal. Now my bank is going to have to dispute the unauthorized charges PayPal made. The account staff at paypal are out of there minds.

Paypal Account

Paypal limits every account

Hello, I have had literally over 50 paypal accounts over the years. My first account gets linked to some of them. Others have no reasonable explanation as to why it gets limited. It is not consistent in terms of how long it takes to get banned. Sometimes its after a day, other times it takes 6 months for them to ban it. I have tried many things, like taking out only a certain amount instead of the full amount. It's almost like the system goes "OH NO, they are taking their money out which means we will make less illegal interest oh noes!!!!!" So is there an algorithm? Is there a percentage or limit to the amount one should take out in order to not get limited?

Believe me or not, I had this happen to me. I tried calling customer service but I think it was the wrong number.

I ended up talking to a security guard. He was willing and listened to my problems though and told me the right number to call.

PayPal has unethically seized MY money.

PayPal – The Grinch that stole Christmas Jim ...., of .........., TN, had been collecting gold and silver coins – for fun and as a hedge against inflation – for decades. When the 88 year old former WW II army veterinarian had to be admitted into a Veteran's home in ............., TN last year he decided to sell off his collection – since gold and silver prices were skyrocketing -to supplement his social security and military disability income. After about a month of successful selling, Scrooge showed up. PayPal decided that Dr. ....... was making too much money. When he was unable to provide the documents of coin sales that had happened decades earlier, PayPal decided to act as judge, jury, and executioner. For months now, PayPal has denied access to Dr. ...... to thousands of dollars of his own money – simply because they have decided that he was doing something wrong. The only thing he has done wrong was to have faith in this dishonest (ever heard of "˜innocent until proven guilty' PayPal?) on-line "˜service'. PayPal, why don't you do the right thing and stop "˜stealing' money from 88 year old World War II veterans?!

PayPal will steal all your money from your account and take more money out of your personal checking account that you gave them access to. If you are a fool like me, then trust PayPal with all your money and when they steel it wait 180 days to get it back or more. Then hire an attorney to be added to all the class action law suits again PayPal.

Paypal is illegally holding my money for 180 days

I recently opened a new account with Paypal and 2 days later Paypal decided to close my account due to it being linked to another account. This is my one and only account that I have. I recently sold a handbag on paypal and they are holding the money that I would have gotten for the sale for 180 days which is illegal. I cannot understand why this is happening. Can I file a complaint against Paypal to get my money back. Why does Paypal have to limit innocent people's accounts. Do they side with the buyers instead of the sellers.

Paypal does this. You need to verify the account.

Also, they suspect you're selling fake goods. Call them.

PAYPAL Poor Policies and Service

What I am about to tell you occurred on April 30th 2010. I applied for a Paypal Debit Card not too long before this incident. Something happened and if I remember correctly I was unable to complete a part of the form. When I talked to a Customer Service Agent regarding the trouble it resulted in my account being limited. Understandable right? They want proof of I.D. to make sure I'm legit, right?This resulted in scrambling for these proofs and numerous calls to paypal's customer service. A few of these proofs at and I admit it was my fault was submitted wrong (blurry, wrong form of a certain proof) Ok, they eventually got all the proofs needed and in proper vivid form. They got what they wanted and my account should be restored right? WRONG! Paypal then decided they no longer wanted to do business with me. I found this out from a very rude and snotty *** of an agent. I demanded to be put on the phone with someone of higher authority than Snooty McStickupthetwat only to be told and in a never ending condescending and rude tone that "The decision is final" and "The people who decided do not talk to anyone." What in the flying ***? I gave them what they wanted and one guy who said it was because of the improper submitted forms understood when I told him another said it was fine if I submitted them correctly. Thus ensues multiple increasingly pissed off calls to find out answers and try and reverse this "Final decision"I then find out it was because I have no credit. They could not find anything on me on any credit score sources. I did not have a job at the time and I have never used a credit card before. This Paypal thought was a good reason to close my account despite no issues in the past. I then find out my paypal balance (Approx $200) Your PayPal Debit Card application has been denied as we were not able toconfirm your identity using the information you provided. In accordance with our User Agreement, any funds in your PayPal accountbalance may be held up to 180 days from the date the limitation was placedon your account. The balance is held to cover any disputes that may befiled against the account. If any funds remain after the 180 day period,you will be notified via email with information on how to receive theremaining funds. Sincerely,NikkiPayPal Compliance DepartmentPayPal, an eBay Company cue my mom, also angry from this *** poor treatment threatening to go on the news and sue paypal unless they let my money go. I had done nothing wrong, complied with their demands for proof and they treated me like a grand larcenist The final guy spoken to said the money would be released in 30 days and Paypal no longer wanted by business. At least an hour later I get an email saying "Your Account has been restored" Final decision my ***! And 2 more emails telling me my account has been updated and the limitations have been lifted. The funds still got transferred to my bank account. Oh well. Thus on May 3rd my account was back to normal. In conclusion this poor treatment, rude service and in general dicking me around when I did nothing wrong is the reason for this review/complaint of Paypal's services. They may have restored my account and everything may peachy but, I was never given an apology.

Paypal Account

Paypal Should Be Closed Down by the Govt.

I'm a professional writer. Signed up for a paid writing site. Did the work. They sent payment to Paypal, where I could then transfer to my account. Signed up for Paypal. Sign up process was like pulling teeth. They would not let me sign up without linking my Paypal account to my debit card (I don't use CCDs), contrary to the fact that the writing company said that I would be able to sign up without linking to my debit card or bank account, which is not true (if u ask why I wanted to do this, it's because I didn't want my account info online or on some computer, and would rather enter it into a shopping-cart type program when the time came to download my pay). Paypal immediately debited my bank account 1.00, which I did not authorize, and did not tell me what it was for, nor did they tell me they were going to do it (we're back to why I didn't want my account info out there). Then they said they would 'add a few pennies to my account over the next few days' in order to "verify" my account, whatever that means. I wrote back and then called "customer service" to let them know that I was in fact verifying my own account, since I can look at it and verify that the 1.00 had been taken out. They gave me a hard time about that. I did eventually get my pay but I had to wait a week---and for what? the money was already in Paypal's accounts, I verified the account on Day 1, and still had to wait. I then wrote a lengthy letter to both of my U.S. Senators as well as my U.S. Representative asking for a serious Congressional investigation of Paypal, in light of my experiences and the experiences of those who have experienced it much worse than me. I suggest everyone else do the same.
