Of course everyone knows that ebay created paypal as a means of collecting money for transactions. What everyone doesn't do is read the end user agreement from paypal to know that they have a disclaimer for every possible situation that doesn't favor the seller or the buyer but themselves. Believe me, if paypal has a dispute they will do everything to resolve it unless they are at fault. They do not offer ANY of the protection that they advertise. They simply instruct you on what to do so that you MIGHT win a dispute.
I found this out after learning that paypal doesn't confirm credit cards so if you accept a payment from paypal and the person disputes the charges, then you will be responsible for the chargeback and fees. Simply put, they don't verify anything and they don't protect anyone but themselves.
I will never use ebay or paypal ever again and you should only do so at your own risk. With all the advertisements stating safe this and protection that i was misled into feeling safe with their online transactions. Learn from my mistake, it cost me $202.26 and harassment from a collection agency as well as degradation to my credit report.
If you ever receive these emails, they are email scams and they want you to click a link within the email so...
I sent my friend $180.00. He lives in Brazil and after waiting for the check for 2 months, he finally received it only to learn that he could not cash it anywhere in Brazil.
Why would paypal send him a check he could not cash? They knew it!
My friend even tried cashing it at a Citibank and could not.
Both of us have called and written paypal many times and after many different excuses, have not had any success in getting my money returned to my checking account (where it was withdrawn).
PAY PAL IS DISHONEST AND SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT THEM!
I am going elsewhere on the internet to complain. I will do whatever it takes!!!
I had sold some items on ebay and the buyer pays for shipping. When I wanted to get the money out i couldn't. They made me pay shipping and wait tell the items got their, before they would let me have the money. I over drew my checking account 300 dollars. Now I sold some more stuff and they limited my account again for no reason. They don't want to solve this problem. I called at least once a day and get no ware. They say they send me emails but I have nothing in my inbox. I would tell someone not to use them if they need the money quick. It takes at least two weeks.
I have a PayPal account for my ID [protected]@hotmail.com, I have recently withdrawn money using the check...
