PayPal encourages Fraud

Details
I ordered an item from ebay that was being originated out of china ..Item arrived was somewhat similar to the item posted but was clearly a bootleg copy..Classic bait and switch sent all my proof and pictures Paypal then made a final decision that if I returned the item to china and seller said everything was returned and in good condition than I can get a refund..1ST off my cost of shipping was 80% of the cost of what I paid due to the size and weight of the box..2ND..I left honest feedback for the seller so I didn't think he would receive it the same way I shipped it...I will contact FCC..That ebay and paypal are clearly allowing fake and fraud foreign countries to sell and ship items to the USA

Anytime you order something direct from someone in China you take the chance that you will be scammed. That's just the way it is.

Use this as one of life's lessons.

Now you know. Get on with life.

Yes , you are right and I was aware of that but I expect ebay and paypal not to allow a flat out crime to occur using there system and then put all the blame and responsibility on the victim...And I didn't know it was coming out of china in the listing it was in California. .One of there many origins of shipping and they are allowed to do it.Im not PO just trying to be informative about sellers on ebay and how I feel like ebay and paypal protects this type of business practice.

CAUTION***PAYPAL DOES NOT PROTECT THE BUYER***NOT A NECESSARY STEP WHEN MAKING PURCHASES***CAUTION

PayPal does not protect the buyer as they advertise. We made a purchase and used PayPal as the method of payment. When we received the item it was seriously incorrectly advertised. We contacted the seller and they stated that they had confused the listing and the item was incorrectly listed. This was all done through e-mails, so the written proof remains. We contacted PayPal to stop the payment, but they allowed the seller the funds so the seller had no further interest in correcting their errors. This is one of the unfortunate ways some dishonest people operate today. We had always believed that by using PayPal we had that extra degree of protection. WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! You are much better off to use a credit card and NOT THROUGH PAYPAL. We only were able to stop the payment by contacting the credit card company and having them block the payment to PayPal. It would have been much easier to just make the payment with the credit card and when the item is not as represented the charge can be disputed thru the credit card. PayPal did not give us the extra degree of protection we expected. All we received from PayPal was cold and unreasonable e-mail answers. Not even a real person to make the call and discuss the situation and reasoning. To allow the payment to the seller PayPal dug deep into some long agreement we were supposed to be aware of and did not even review our conditions or the e-mails where the seller admitted that they had not correctly advertised the item. When your contact PayPal you will only get a person who has little interest in handling a problem and apparently has no authority to made decisions. Your credit card company will at least listen and allow the charge to be disputed and then make a fair decision based on all of the facts. We believe that your credit card company is more interested in having satisfied customers than PayPal. It is our total belief that PayPal is a unnecessary step in making purchases and just a way for some enterprising entrepreneur to make money. PayPal has grown too big and too cold to be of any assistance to consumers today. PAYPAL IS NOT NEEDED! Back to the credit cards and goodbye to PayPal.

PayPal doesn't care about you as they did in the past.All they care about is getting their money.

Whether you have been a member with them for over 5 years or as little as a couple of months, your treated as anyone else. Do they bother to help you when your account gets limited?

Nope, they will just kick you to the curb without any warning.

They literally pulled the rug out from under my business when we were doing high volume sales.

Limited the account during our peak business quarter and demanded several documents to which we provided. Several weeks and months went buy with no messages or any updates. That is when we had to call in and they told us they refused the documents and closed our account permanently.

Really PayPal?

All that time and you couldn't give me an answer? We lost nearly 5 figures because of them and not to mention they killed off our main processor and are now holding our money for over 6 months.

Business almost went into bankruptcy until we made the hasty decision to go stealth using the help of Auction Essistance. I mean what else can you do? When your business is dying, you will not sit there and watch it die.

Had to take some desperate measures so our employees and our families were not put at risk. PayPal was no help at all throughout the process.I give the middle finger every single time because of it.

PayPal review in Chicago, Illinois: Terrible Customer Service

I wanted to pay for an item on Ebay and PayPal had used an expired credit card that was suppose to be deleted off my account and didn't show up. Next I get an email stating my item wasn't paid for and my PayPal account locked. I then had to pay by an echeck which took 5 business days for them to process. I explained to the customer service rep what had happened and why my card was not deleted, he said it was my fault and not theirs. He argued with me for ten minutes, I finally hung up. Wish Ebay would find someone else to use.

Here's another PAYPAL Nightmare. I am an American living in Japan.

I am using their "service" (it might be better to say GOUGE) to make and receive Ebay payments. Well Ebay owns this disorganized outfit anyway.

To make a long story short Paypal put a hold on my account because they said they couldn't verify my identity - I tried to comply with their policy. The problem is that I am expecting payments so this really damages my auction business. I have sent repeated emails with no response - other than the automated email which seemed to misdirect me every time. Finally I called the customer service and was promised a remedy that was 4 days ago and I am no closer to getting help than I was at the start- The Paypal customer service is nonexistant- They DONT need to act professionally - they hold me hostage at Ebay. If I don't use them - I can't use Ebay. I deserve damges due to lost business.

if you have another creit card or debit card you can use that as a backup when your paypal account is empty. Ebay will never get rid of paypal as Ebay owns paypal.

But you can also pay by credit card if your paypal account is empty.

Thanks for the response - Paying for purchases is OK

Any ideas on how I could receive auction payments other

than "PAY ...no pal of mine" ? jm

Confused and furiouse Paypal User suspended

ebay/paypal suspended account, offered no information, no appeal, no resolution. Account was suspended without warning or apparent reason. When trying to discover why, I was told I needed to obtain a subpoena. As of 12/31/12, two items had sold on ebay. The following day my account was suspended. Without any information, I didn't even know whether to ship or not. Turned out payment was held pending resolution, but as the suspension was permanent; the buyers were to be left in limbo with the seller striped of means for direct resolution. On 1/1/13 I called customer service at eBay twice, both times was shrugged off without any info. On 1/2/13 I called Paypal support and was told I needed a subpoena just to learn why I was suspended. On 1/2/13 I began receiving disputes from Paypal in regards to the products I no longer had any information about. My Paypal balance was 0, because payment was held for a new account. I issued a refund for the product I never sold or received payment for, and was informed that my Paypal account was now in negative balance. In addition, I paid $26.45 in Shipping fees that are now null thanks to the unwarranted, unannounced, and unexplained account suspension.

PayPal review in Chicago, Illinois: Pay Pal Cant be trusted

In the last few months PayPal has allowed someone in Indonesia to empty my bank account tied to my PayPal account. I got the money back a few days later, but not soon enough to avoid bounced checks due to the missing funds. Today my PayPal account was shut down because someone from the Sudan accessed my account and tried to take more money (they didnt get any because I wised up and deleted my abnk info from PayPal since they were unable to protect that information). Now PayPal wants me to send copies of my passport, drivers license, and utility bills to prove that I am who I say I am and presumbly not the person from the Sudan. PayPal cant protect my bank account information. And now they want copies of all of my identification. I am supposed to trust that they can protect that when they cant protect my money? Ive never had a single problem with my bank or any credit card I;ve ever had over the course of 15 years. Yet I've had 2 major security breaches with PayPal in under 3 months. I think PayPal isn't up to the task of protecting its customers.

PayPal review in Chicago, Illinois: Three pairs of shorts for the price of six!

I recently ordered six pairs of shorts from Kmart online and paid with my charge card trough PayPal. My order confirmation shows that I ordered and paid for six pairs. I then receive two "Your order has shipped" emails, one stating that one pair is being shipped and the other that two pairs are being shipped. They then send a three cent refund to my credit card through PayPal, that's a penny a pair? I contacted customer service and they confirmed that they are sending only three pairs and that the amounts charged are correct. I could return them to the store but the order confirmation shows six pairs instead of the actual quantity shipped, which is three. BEWARE! SOMETHING IS VERY WRONG WITH THE MATH CALCULATIONS BEING DONE BY THE ONLINE KMART STAFF AND THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE TEAM IS BACKING THEM UP 100%.

All is well with me. Paid via paypal as well.

I jailbreak and unlocked my iphone 4 on iOS 4.3.3 just as the website claimed. I would highly recommend utilizing this website and their service.

Hmm.. Paid thru Paypal and there seems to be no problem.

iPhone Unlocker Pro was able to unlock my iPhone 4 in a matter of minutes and it wasn't all that complicated. Definitely recommended.
