Paypal / customer service are idiots

I was selling on ebay and using paypal for several years, I mainly sell during the holiday season.

On Dec 10, 2007 I sold an item that sold for $25.00 I promptly shipped out an got a tracking number, I keep all receipts, tracking numbers on file for problems that do occur during shipping. Two weeks later the item was returned back to me with "return to sender, no such address" stamped on it, I called pay-pal to inform them of this situation, they told me to fax in the receipt, a copy of the tracking number and a copy of the package to them for their investigation. I contacted the buyer and explained the problem and he wanted me to reship the item at my expense to the same address, I told him that I WOULDN'T because think about it if it was returned once it would be returned again.

The buyer made a claim on no shipment, so I called pay-pal again to remind them that they already had all the information about this issue, they told me that there will not be problems on this and they will get me the right address and they will make the buyer repay for shipment.

Two weeks later no response from pay-pal, I noticed that the money for the item was refunded, I contacted pay-pal they informed me that they ruled in favour of the buyer "because the buyer never received the item" I again informed them that they already had all the documentation from the shipment, they kept on saying "well the buyer never received the item" I asked them about the seller protection they again told me "the buyer never received they item"

Two months later pay-pal's collection service called me told me that I was $62.00 past due and they wanted the money. I refused to pay. Called pay-pal spoke with 2 of their senior reps, they informed me that my account was charged twice for this and that my account was past due and thats why they were calling me to collect, so I asked them why when my account already had a chargeback for the item they kept on telling me that the buyer never received the item and the buyer received the money for the chargeback. Hum what happened to the money I asked, they could never explain!!!

Simple math would tell you $25.00+$25.00 does not equal to $62.00 where’s the money at????

Obviously no one there knows either, why did I double charged for a chargeback and what happened to $12.00????

No one knows, no one can answer any questions, and no one cares.

    Paypal is selling porn/obscene content online, against their Terms of Service. Check this:

    Why would the Board of Directors of eBay agree to sell porn online through Paypal? Don't they have to be responsible to their shareholders, most of whom are institutional funds that can't work with companies that sell porn.
