It somehow helps to know i'm not entirely alone with this nonsense.
I woke up this morning to the charge notification in my e-mail account of $150. I notice alot of people have the same complaint.
This however has resulted in my bank account being overdrawn to -$384. There's no time this is appropriate, but last week my first child was born, and my wife could be dying, and i'm 6000 miles away from them, and have been ignoring my own health to bust my ass to save money to get to her as fast as possible.
I am a man, and that's what men do. But i can't tell you how this has me in tears. Every day has been some new trial to face, concern for my wifes health taking precidence above them all, and now this.
Whoever is responsible for this, may god have mercy on you. Look at how many peoples lives you're destroying. I hope, when this age ends, and the new kingdom comes, your 5 million tokens was worth all the suffering you've put people through.
Now i just feel balled up, numb. I contacted paypal, 5 times they said the $150 is refunded, 5 times they said they'd fax the information to the bank explaining that it wasn't my fault, so that any charges incurred would be waived.
I called the bank several times, monitored my account, no refund, no faxes. The manager offers to help me as much as he can when he sees some evidence of action on paypals part. EVERY DAY! There will be new charges. Eight of them, $32 a piece, every day.
Now, the only job i can afford is the one that's breaking my body down and could render me functionally useless. I stood out in front of my parents house with a sign begging for work or donations because my wife and child are worth my sacrifice. Now the weekend job, gone. No gas. The check this week? Direct deposit. Gone.
If we ever meet face to face, whoever is responsible for this... God have mercy on you, don't you dare ever ask it of me.
