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! | PayPal review from Stockton, California

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@yahoo.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.

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

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.

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

PayPal is holding $3400 of my money that I wanted to send to another person, I sent the money Sept 26 but the person who was to receive the money has not been able to access it and is told not until October 4. There is not legitimate reason for PayPal to hold my money for 8 days.

None whatsoever.

As soon as my money is deposited into the receivers account will I then delete my account and the receiver will also delete their account. There is NOOOO benefit to using PayPal.

On May 1, 2009 I received an e-mail for PayPal that a chargeback dispute had been filed against me. They promptly removed $217.54 from my account balance and thus the dispute had begun. There was an investigation and I provided everything that I had to support my case...

Palpal account mix ups with GEMoney. They've lost almost $500.00 in payments | PayPal review from Scranton, Pennsylvania

Calls to paypal number would not let me talk to a human being. Phone calls from them claimed I had not made payments for two months when I had made two payments.I made on line payments that noone can find am being charged late fees as well!Some months recorded no payments. My money has disappeared. I don't know where to turn but will ask my bank to try to trace the on line payments from my account. If anyone can suggest anither way to find this money and get out of the hazzle with this company please let me know.

I'm having horrible problems with Paypal. This is over only $20.

Maybe I'll just write it off but every I'm Not Happy website will hear about it and my account will be cancelled. Remember when this company was good?

I do. Too bad greed took over.

PayPal Credit Card from GE Money Bank

I applied for the PayPal credit card online. After I submited my application I waas told that they could not process at this time and I should try again later. I decided not to try again later and to apply with a different card issuer. I get an email the next day letting me know that I have been approved for the PayPal card and my account is ready to use. I called the customer service center and explained that I did not give them authorization to resubmit my information nor was it disclosed to me that this would be done. They said they would close the account, but it will still show on my credit as a closed account. This made me very upset because had I known that they would be issuing me a line a credit I would not have applied wiht another company. Now my credit score has taken 2 hits for an inquiry and I will now have an account on my report that I did not even authorize. I have filed a report with the BBB and I am currently waiting for them to try and resolve the issue.

Paypal stole money from us

We have an online store and don't use paypal anymore. They've choosed the highest sale we made and returned the money to our customer when we had already sent the products. Then they charged us a fee for the return saying that the client made a complaint. When I contacted him he said he didn't know nothing about it and made me a bank transfer. Can you imagine that? If our client wasn't an honest person we would loose a lot of money. I know that they do this a lot, if you can imagine hundreds and hundreds of small, medium and big fees charged.. it's a lot of money they make illegaly.

Paypal Is A RipOFF

PAYPAL HAS THE SAME TRANSACTION AMOUNT ON 2 SEPERATE CREDIT CARDS. THEY SAID THE FIRDT TRANSACTION DID NOT CLEAR SO I USED A DIFFERANT CARD TO MAKE PAYMENT. THEY CLAIM IT DID NOT CLEAR ALSO. NOW I HAVE THE SAME CHARGE CLEARED ON BOTH CARDS [AND IVE CONTACTED BOTH CARDS TO VERIFY] AND PAYPAL SAYS THEY DIDNT CLEAR. ENDED UP SENDING SELLER A CHECK, BUT STILL HAVE CHARGES ON MY CARDS THAT I WILL HAVE TO FILE A DISPUTE TO GET REMOVED NOW THEY PLACED A 1.49 CHARGE ON PENDING PAYMENT AND IT CLEARED MY BANK 5 DAYS AGO. DONT EVEN TRY TO TALK TO PAYPAL, ALL YOU GET IS THE RUN AROUND. PISSED PISSED PISSED PISSED PISSED PISSED

Ordered product from a halversonandsons.com. Payment went through PAYPAL.

My credit card got charged. I did not receive product. E-mailed both halversonandsons.com and paypal. No reply from havlversonandsons.

PAYPAL e-mails me that they have settled my dispute and I indicated a settlement of $0 was satisfactory. Where they got that idea is ridiculous. I never indicated such a thing. I want a full refund.

When I e-mail them back, they tell me I don't have an account and they don't recognize my e-mail. They want me to sign up for an account. Yeah, sure, I want to deal with these rip-off artists. I dealt with PAYPAL as a government employee once about 5 years ago and a very similar incident happened that took all my time at work for six months to straighten out.

These people take your money and hope that they can wear you down and make you go away. DON'T DEAL WITH THESE PEOPLE AND IF YOU ORDER SOMETHING THAT HAS TO GO THROUGH PAYPAL - DON'T!
