PayPal Will Let Crooks Scam You Out Of YOur Money
This is my story- On May 25, 2018 I sold an electric wheelchair on eBay for $2500 to Miguel Diaz, President of Mobile Power Mobility in Puerto Rico. He said he would buy it if I would ship it to him. I said yes if he paid for the shipping up front which he did. He...

Selling on eBay can be dangerous. Best to avoid and also PayPal seems to be rather questionable.

Paypal Stole 18K from my Business

1.0
Details
Paypal Stole $18k from my business account, one of my staff members had a personal paypal account and because one of his contact phone numbers was our shop number paypal linked his account with ours and took 18k from our account and will not return the funds, this is basically theft and paypal challenges you to try and sue them saying they have more money than we do and will keep us in court until we cant pay anymore, i would highly advise people and businesses not to deal with paypal because they will rip you off. Look for a more reputible company to do business with as paypal are only interested in them selves and will do what ever they can to take your hard earned money

PayPal review in Middletown, Ohio: Account is limited

1.0
Details
Made a purchase through paypal on Nov.23, 14. Purchase was cancelled by seller, but my credit card was still charged.Paypal has limits on my acct. I purchased a tablet and tv from Sears using paypal on Nov.23,14. On Nov.24 Sears cancelled the order and said via email that my credit card would not be charged. I was in fact charged 96.06 and 106.74. The 96.06 was credited to my account immediately after but the 106.74 was not. I spoke to Sears who was going to credit my account but never did. I then disputed the transaction with Discover (my credit card company). I then received my credit for the 106.74 on 2/15 from Discover. However, Paypal now has my account frozen saying I owe them 96.06. We have now spent NUMEROUS hours on the phone with paypal who have no idea what is going on. Paypal is now stating they are waiting on the 96.06 from Discover, who states there was no transaction for this. There have been numerous conference calls with discover and paypal. Discover says this is not on their end which I believe. It is paypal. They want money from me when I did not receive any merchandise and I was not refunded twice, only what I had paid out.

Is paypal the scam?

1.0
Details
Does anybody know which department in the U.S. oversees the practices taken by paypal? To summarize, seller did not list any shipping (zero), I won the bid and then my secretary paid the bill but when I reviewed the bill I found that $79+ had been added to the amount for shipping. Paypal found in my favor and wanted me to ship back the item AT MY COST/loss (what a potential scam that is). I called and was told that the seller would be contacted to pay the shipping label and I said why don’t I just keep the item I “won” and he simply refund the money which was illegitimately taken from me. They said okay they will contact the seller in that regard and then I receive an email that states they find NOT in my favor (!!!). WTF? The former email states in my favor, all the calls to paypal were concluded with all the agents finding the listing definitely did not include shipping. What entity can operate this unethical way?

Paypal is also AWFUL for international customers, they know nothing about the financial reality of many South American countries.

Paypal has closed my accounts as they now state it is not allowed to have accounts in a country where you do not reside....

Was charged for a shipping label by paypal after my backup source covered it

Paypal tried to get one over on me today. I printed a label for shipping but did not have enough money in my paypal account so it was taken out of my backup source (bank account) and then paypal also tried to charge me, I called and they said as a courtesy they will credit it back to me, like what??? as a courtesy, they had no right taking it out in the first place and overdrafted my paypal account. So got that straightened out and I told them about another label I had printed and it didn't print so I hit print again and it printed but I was charged for the same label twice and they said there was nothing they could do about it so I requested to speak with a supervisor, got hung up on after 1/2 hour on hold the hour i was on the phone with paypal, so called them back talked to a supervisor and got that reimbursed as well. What a freakin nightmare it was!!!

PayPal review in Austinburg, Ohio: Paypay collecting sensitive information for NO SERVICE, wasting HOURS & refuses to delete

We have had lots of problems with Paypal. Paypal, without notice perform network tracking & permanently disable processing credit cards ONCE Tor, or a similar proxy routers are used. Paypal also refuse processing payments when new/replacement cards are used - clashes with old/expired card data. To remedy it they want more personal information than a passport! They have no right to demand, or retain such information, but do, & refuse to delete it! So, even for a minor purchase they extort information, and also determine (as with Visa) if they will process the transaction at their whim, as they did with Wikileaks.. You may lose business if imposing Paypal's non-service upon customers.. Wish you well, happy 2013

Paypal is now holding your cash for no reason

Ebay/Paypal is now up to scamming sellers to keep them from obtaining power level to save them money. I have been selling on ebay for 10 years with feedback of 99.7, and no open cases. Recently ebay sent me a notice stating that 2 buyers tried to file a complaint of item not received. Due to a technical issue, you may have received an email from eBay Buyer Protection on November 22, 2011. The purpose of the email was to inform you that one or more buyers tried to open a case against you (though it was too soon to do so). However, case alerts identified in the email may have been sent to you in error; these would be resends of past cases. Please check the Case Attempt Dates in the email carefully, and work to resolve any recent issues that are still outstanding. With apologies for the inconvenience, Of course, I was close to power level discount when this happened, problem is the transaction was over a year ago. Now, in one day I am no longer a power seller, and paypal/ebay are holding my funds. Screams SCAM! Beware, ebay is now up to rippin off America now too! Guess they had to join the game! Must have felt left out!

As a seller, I am very upset that my money is being held for 21 days. I pay for shipping upfront because I don't want to use ebay shipping services and meanwhile the purchaser receives and is able to use the item(s) before I am even able to touch my money.

It is not the purchasers fault either because they have already paid. It is PayPal that is the problem by tieing up the money.

eBay changed the rules, The salers can say you have 7 Days 2 pay, But eBay only gives you the buyer 6 days 2 Pay.

I found out the hard way, I thout I had 7 days 2 pay from the saler, but I got an unpaid buyer strike. Then I received the email about the buyer has filed an unpaid buyer strike. I was just 3 days away from day 7 but I just paid any way.

You can't fight eBay & PayPal, they are just 2 big. :sigh

That email you got was probably the result of a *** job against ebay. One that they covered up. To find out, check your messages in your "my ebay".

I think you'll find that there's nothing there. Any messages not in 'my ebay' are scams. Thus it was a *** job. Why, I bet the letters even contained your real name, didn't they? How do you feel about that? Safe? LoL Check around. Everyone knows it was hacked. The emails originated in Austria, not San Jose.

Now about those unlawful money holds, contact your state's agency which issues Paypal's money transmitter license. Look up the terms and see what the time limit and conditions are. If they aren't following everything to the letter of the law file formal complaint.

You can find the list of state agencies on paypal's own website by going to the site map there and searching (ctrl+F) state license, or just do a google search or google site search.

I guarantee you'll get positive results, quickly.

There are also 2 lawsuits going against paypal. One for illegally holding funds and another for getting bank overdraft fees when they jack your bank account and you get overdraft fees because your funds are being held.

Spread the word. Paypal is breaking the law but if you complain to the right place you'll get your money back!

I got in touch with Pay-pal over the dispute I am having with Fileserve.com (See complaints)because I paid for the Fileserve's premium service through Pay-pal but I was informed that they just get involved with disputes within 45 days of buying something. Pay-pal should handle services then.

As mine was for a years' service and they stopped it half way through.

It would be the same as if I paid for a years subscription to a magazine and not receive half the issues. Any cases such as these you will not get help from Pay-pal!

I recently stopped buying from sellers on eBay because they suddenly forgot how to package items properly. After taking my money they just sent antique breakables in used, dirty boxes with too little packing, even after over-charging me on shipping.

I've had to file three cases with PayPal to get my money back, but I lost money having to return the broken items to the sellers. Since I lost money on return shipping and had nothing to show for it I figured I'd just buy locally when I'm in the mood to go antique hunting and I'll never buy anything like that online again. So, I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm not really concerned about your troubles with PayPal holding your funds.

Maybe if you had treated your buyers better you wouldn't be in this situation. I bet you have all 4.8's on your DSRs, don't you?
