Complaints & Reviews

Wesaveyou$ eBay Seller + eBay / Paypaldefective product, no communication or refund

wesaveyou$ eBay seller sold me a product, on 5/28/09 with several obvious defects, other than those listed in auction.

I left negative feedback to which he was allowed to reply with misinformation he knew was irrelevant to my complaint. I have no option, on eBay, to make this clear. I am an eBay buyer and seller with 100% positive feedback and until this matter have never left a negative feedback.

Though wesaveyou$ has 170 negative feedback, in the last 12 months eBay gives him a feedback score of 98.6%!!! This misleads others who might consider buying from this seller.

After 3 weeks with no response from him about this matter I filed a claim with PayPal, who guaranteed this auction and immediately escalated it to a claim per Pay Pal’s rules on 6/22/09. PayPal did not acknowledge the claim until today, when I filed it for a second time!

In short, I am left unsatisfied by the actions/inactions of wesaveyou$ or eBay/PayPal (PayPal is owned by eBay). In a simple matter of clearly defective merchandise I have been unable to receive any kind of satisfaction; or even direct contact (I did receive a couple of unresponsive auto-responses) from any of the other parties involved.

    Paypal Buyer Creditpaying your monthly payment

    I rec'd an application and did not want it, went into the website to delete it and for some unknown reason, the next time I purchased something on EBay, it went directly to PayPal Buyer Credit Card. I've had nothing but problems trying to pay my bills with them. I've sent in my payment a week before my deadline and the next time I get a billing notice, it show's that, I was late in my payment and they had charged me a delinquent fee of $20.00! These guys reminds me of the "Loan Sharks" back in the days, but only legally.
    My honest opinion is, don't apply for their credit card. Besides, who operates a banking company that, don't have an email address to complain too! You need to literally, write a hand written letter to these people who only have a P.O. Box.
    If you do decide to call the phone number, you will be talking to someone in India, with a heavy accent, who knows the English language as a 2 or 3 language. "GOOD LUCK!!"
    I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED IN THIS TYPE OF SERVICE FROM "PAYPAL BUYER CREDIT". EBAY IS SUCH A WONDERFUL TOOL, AND IT'S UNFORTUNATE, THAT THEY HAVE SUCH A POOR AND NOT EVEN A MEDIOCRE CREDIT CARD SERVICE.

        This is illegal, they are changing the due date for payment at anytime they feel is good for them, they call at all hours of the day and night, I never appliedfor this card I tried to delete the application, the next time I made a purchase on E Bay the bill came from them and GE Money Bank, E bay has screwed up and screwed me for the last time, my $74.00 purchase is now $194.00 with their 39.00 late fee and 2.85 service charge, theres a joke what service did I get, NONE! . I am complaining to EBAY directly this is their company (PayPal) and they need to know what they are doing to their loyal customers...you should as well because you will get nowhere trying to deal with GE MONEY BANK...go to the source -diamondmike1(over 100 positive feedbacks)

      Thank You For Using Your Paypal Debit Card For Your Payment Of $29. 99 Usd To Wmv*match.comtheft

      I recieved an email the other day saying this: Thank you for using your PayPal Debit Card for your payment of $29.99 USD to WMV*MATCH.COM [protected] TX.

      I have never used this company and this charge is fraudulant and theft. I have reported it on Paypal, to the "site" Match.com and to the Internet Crime Complaint Center online. I have seen several people with this same complaint and I am curious when something is going to be done about this.

          I'm just curious if it's a phishing e-mail. If you've never used the site, I wouldn't be surprised if there's a link to match.com or paypal where they'll try to get your account number and similar things. I love clicking on things like that and putting in false information :o)

          I have a Paypal debit card and have only used it once online to order a giftcard for a friend otherwise it stays in my wallet. No one has access to my card or my account. I looked up the name of the transaction and apparently many people have had this same charge show up on their debit and credit cards. I read on one post that it could be a keylogger/trojan in my pc that stole my card number. I am not sure how to check for a keylogger because it has not been found by my present virus scan. Anyone who knows of a good clean scan that I can download I would much appreciate it.

          You can also try Spybot Search & Destroy. That has found some things my virus scan hasn't. Regardless, I don't think you should type any sensitive information into your computer until you're sure everything is ok. Good luck!

          Paypal And eBaychinese ebayers pandora

          i bought a pandora necklace 79.99 from haveabead and it's defective. pandora keeps their prices up. i wondered how he can sell lower. in teeny tiny letters his auction states he's not an authorized pandora dealer. when i think about it, the items that do not meet pandora's standards have to go somewhere. maybe it was something someone returned to the store. he's a power seller. i'm not buying like that again.

          i bid on 6.99 pandora from hong kong on ebay. is that not a red flag? they advertise it as authentic and of course it can't be. 6 minutes left on the auction, i bid. i was notified i was the 1st bidder. couple seconds later i get an email i've been outbid. then i get a notice the auction ended and i was outbid. then i get a 2nd chance offer as the winning bidder cannot buy the item for some stupid reason that i can't remember. that's a setup and ebay allows that. it's an ebayer from hong kong.

          i'm a seller also. i hadn't sold anything for 6 months and i got online and sold a pin and peepal put a hold on my money. i found out my money was held when i took the pin to the post office and my peepal card was declined. they said when i get feedback from the buyer, they will release my funds. it was because i hadn't had any feedback on ebay for awhile. if you're not selling anything, that should come as no surprise. a lot of people don't leave feedback. they say if the buyer doesn't leave feedback, they will release in 21 days. he left feedback. sure came as a surprise to me. i have 100% pos feedback.

          i think they should be dumping these crooked hong kong pandora auctions and not harrassing honest sellers.

          a lot of the electronics is refurbished so you don't know what you are getting. a lot of the designer bags are fakes.

          i think you have to be really leary about people selling new.

          ebay does not monitor that. power sellers make ebay a lot of money.

          ebay is not the safest place to buy either.

          buyers can be liars too.

              Hi, I own the eBay store where this lady purchased this necklace, "Have a Bead"; I'm a reputable Powerseller with over 5000 positive feedback's, with not one Negative, I only sell authentic Pandora products, I strive in offering superb customer Service, this lady is assuming something that it is not, she has never contacted me, nor has giving me a chance to exchange it for her, nor has she taken it to have it checked at any authorized Pandora dealer, if she would have, she would have found out that it was an authentic necklace.
              Buyers like her, are very difficult to please, due to the fact that they don't give you a chance. Just for the record, Pandora is the one who makes the product not me, I only sell them, also, why was it that she didn't give a negative feedback, something doesn't sound right???

              EBay and pay pal ripped me off over $1000.00 I had to hire an attorney to get them off my back. I ordered a bunch of stuff for Christmas gifts they charged my credit card and I didn't get all my things I tried to go through EBay and then I tried to through Pay-pal and finally I tried to go through my credit card and that was a no go too. So I was screwed by all three companys and finally hired an attorney and he was able to get some of my money back.

              Buyer beware don't use your credit cards with Pay-pal you have no recourse if you order something and it doesn't come.

              There is some great news regarding auction item fraud- a nationwide company with over 1, 500 agents launches February First. They will go, in person, to verify an auction item for you to make sure it is legitimate and they will even take the item to UPS or Fed Ex to ship it to you! The company is called Wegolook.com and here is a general description of them:

              WeGoLook is an online service that provides visual confirmation and a personalized report, completed by a real person, to verify a prodcut, person, place or thing. WeGoLook customers will be better informed, avoid costly surprises, plus benefit from unbiased confirmation without having to travel.

              It might be helpful to you and others to utilize their services before getting scammed- especially high-end auction items like jewlery.

            Ge Money Paypal Credit Cardclosed account

            I had a GE Money bank Paypal credit card for 1 year. All went well, I paid on time and even paid the account off in full 3 times (proving I have the ability to do so). In January 2009 I began to have problems. First they claimed that my payment was returned. They claimed "no account found" my bank said they never returned anything. At this time they charged me 35.00 for a returned check, which was actually a returned electronic payment. My bank information was saved under payment preferences on the website and never changed. I went in and retyped my info and made another payment. It then happened again! I was charged another 35.00 AND a late fee of 40.00 something dollars. Incredible! I had to mail in a payment to clear the whole thing up. At this point I had spoken to their ridiculous customer service who is completly useless. I think there are a total of three people who do not speak clear english sitting in a room laughing at all of us. I should have closed it then and there! But I didn't and things got worse. I started having my card declined weekly if not more. Not even for large amounts, one charge of 2.38 was declined. This was really embarrassing. I called and they said it was "fraud protection". They would just lock my account whenever they deemed it could be a fraudulent charge. It made me furious on more than one occassion. I would call, they would question me and then unlock the account. Fine enough..I decided I would pay it off and close it as soon as I could. Well one day I noticed that I couldn't redeem my 5, 786 points on the website. I didn't bother calling because it's pointless. that same day I recieved a letter stating that my account had been closed. WHAT? it said after a "review" of my account I had too many dishonered payments and my account was closed. I called..I explained that those dishonered payments were not truly dishonered and that it was something in their system that caused the "no account found". They said that their computer looks for dishonered payments and doesn't care why. So, now my account is closed, fine. BUT now I will have a bad mark on my credit! They said I could report it to the Fair credit report act (which I am ) but other than that..they could do nothing. I am amazed..in these times you would think they would want customers like me who actually pay them. I feel that their practices are fraudulent . My advice to anyone is to stay away. Any company/bank that doesn't have an email address to contact them through is suspicous to me. Both GE money bank and PAYpal credit card websites have no email address for customers. You can only call or write letter. I've never been treated so poorly in my life! If you have this credit card, mail in your payments and make should you keep copies and good records of everything you do with them!

                  Call you Congressperson and get the laws changed.

                  eBay Gift Cards - Paypalmultiple card use

                  Beware when using multiple Ebay Gift Cards to make an online purchase. I have noticed that when trying to "use up" gift cards with small balances that the Ebay system will charge the full amount of the transaction to the final card used if it contains sufficient funds to cover the transaction. In other words even though you enter the Redemption Code for a card with a $10.00 balance first, then use the code from a card with a $50.00 balance second, for say a $30.00 purchase, the entire $30.00 will be deducted from the second card. Which leaves $10.00 on the first card, which you have no way of knowing. If you pitch the card then your out of luck. SURPRIZE!

                  There are no indications provided during the checkout process that would alert you that they did this. I wonder how many folks have throw their money in the trash can because of this. Good for Ebay! Bad for customers.

                    I mailed a payment in January that for some reason they did not receive or did not process. On my next bill I noticed a late payment notice, a jump in my interest rate from 9.99% to 28.99% and excessive finance charges as a result. I immediately called after seeing the payment didn't process through my bank.

                    When I spoke with someone I was told I'd have to write a letter to a seperate office in TX to have them review my account and see if they could do anything about the charges and increased interest. When I asked to speak to a supervisor I was put on hold for 20 minutes and when the supervisor answered I was told that I couldn't even pay over the phone without a $15 fee that they would not wave. I was told that person's supervisor was not in.

                    I'll be paying my balance and closing the card (if I can figure out how to do that since they won't let me do it over the phone or online.) All in all the service SUCKS. I'll stick with my MBNA, Amex and Discover.

                        I had the very same problem with the Paypal Plus Credit Card.

                        I sent in my payment 3 weeks before the minimum due date and Paypal claimed that the payment was not received or not processed correctly and the interest rate climbed from 14.24% to 29.99%.

                        I contacted Paypal about this and was put on hold for about 10 minutes then hung up on so i called again and spoke with the supervisor because i was hung up on and he said that i would have to write a written leeter to send in to their claims department.

                        This account was not worth applying for and will be closing it soon.

                        Paypalunauthorized charges

                        Any sellers that used paypal to receive payments, should check their account very closely, as paypal can reverse the payment you have received and then leave it on held for ever, and when I contacted them, they claimed that it is a system 'problem' and therefore if you do not keep a close eye on your paypal account, paypal could held your money for ever, and you might not even know they are doing so, because the transaction might not show up in the dispute/resolution log. They even keep holding my $$$ when their system closed the case and 'claimed' the $$$ on hold was released back to my account, and should be available for my used.

                        How can the self proclaimed 'largest processor of payment on ebay' which handled billions of $$$ in transactions had a stupid outdated system like the one they have?

                        I beat if paypal done that to me, they would have done the same thing to other sellers.

                        Lawyers out there, you should look into this and clearly paypal not only violated banking laws, possible other laws, when they illegally held others $$$ and avoid to pay the interest on the $$$ they are holding.

                        In my case, they are not paying interest, on $$$ they claimed they have released back to my account and available for my use.

                            Since using my credit card once on paypal, I keep getting emails saying I have purchased other items. These other items and research was not authorized. I will keep monitoring these items.
                            But feel that everyone should be careful. I have not entered my account information again,

                            I Sold a bunch of surplus computer supplies on eBay, and I only ship to a confirmed address. PayPal stated that the address was confirmed, and user verified, and I was eligible for Seller Protection. Well I shipped the item w/ Signature Confirmation and buyer claimed he never got it. PayPal found in favor of the buyer as they do 99.9% of the time (even though I had proof of delivery). The buyer then took the money he made in this scam and closed hi eBay and PayPal accounts, as well as his e-mail account. PayPal told me that since his account is close I'm no longer eligible for Seller Protection, and need to contact the buyer to receive my money. This is ridiculous that PayPal cannot find any way to guarantee me my money. This event sets me bacy almost $150 dollars that I had to take out of my profits and give to the owner of these items as this was a consignment sale.

                            Paypal decided to relieve me and my partner of $624.46 on the 16th Feb, 09, it has taken me nearly 4 weeks and jumping through hoops to try and prove to them that I had nothing to do with this deduction from our account, I have been made to feel like an idiot, because the Yank chicks you speak to talk so fast that you cant even understand them, then just talk over the top of you.

                            Some Yank Kevin V. we will call him, decided to set me up some WoW account, now after checking on the internet WoW is a game like Dungeons and Dragons see Im 42 and thats the closest I can come too, all played on the Internet, yeah I'd be into that, NOT.

                            How can this happen, that your money is not safe in your Savings account, Im not saying my Bank has a lot to answer for, but they showed me the paper work from Paypal saying it was a Direct Debit and they had already tried to steal $702.50 two weeks before, so I got charged $80.00 from my bank for overdrawn account, I have spent a total of 5 hours and 42 minutes, ringing a 1800 number and being on hold, cos thats supposed to calm you down, well i just got more p-ssed off, I have contacted the Age paper, they want to do a story once it resolved, I don't think so. I want to bring Patpal to there knees.

                            I work at Griffith University on the Gold Coast as a Chef so I have told all the kids to not get mixed up with this company, I have posted signs all over campus, and I will do what ever I can to stop anyone using this complete scam of a business.

                            PayPal must have some one inside to gain access to your personal information and begin all this illegal stuff. It seems they sell your personal information to fraud companies who call people even elderly people late at night while they are sleeping. PayPal desperately needs Federal FBI investigation. I would NEVER recommend that company to anyone, too much fraud connected with them. BEWARE !!!

                              I to have received all different types of emails for lotto winnings, the Paypal one, which I contacted them and they have no such ruufle. Out of all the ones on here I have received almost all of these. Whatever you do, do not give them any information. The only way anything can be done is if they steel your indentity, by then it's to late right. That's what the police department had told me any way. Not only that, I have been contacting all of these companies that they have copied attaching the email that they sent me. I also reply to them telling them that they are not legiimate and if they contact me again I will be contacting the proper authorities and that I will file harrassment charges against them. It seems to work, becuase they leave me alone, but 2 or 3 days later, they will send me another fake lotto winning. I also tell them that I am replying from my own fake email address and that they can take whatever info they want, but they are not going to get my real info. Works really wll. Also, if you get any that have the yahoo addresses, let yahoo know right away and they will cancel there accounts. This way it will take them a while to get a new one up and running. This is there way of getting our info. so that they can either come here from over there or get into our things in order to take money. Just be careful and make sure to let these companies know. I believe the companies can do something because they are copyrighting there websites and all that. So it is always good to let them know and if by some weird chance you did win something I'm sure they would contact you. They also have work scams going on too. They get your info. off of Career Builder or any other site that has your resume posted for a job and they email saying that they have a work at home business and that they are contacting you to let you know when you can start and that they will send you money. I went to one of the sites and it has a red flagged box on it, stating that if you received an email from a specific person about a job that, that person does not work for their company and that it is a scam. This is all the info I have so far, but like I said before. Just be careful and don't get yourself into something that will cost you money, speaking of which, there is another one were if you fet involved with someone that wants to send you beneficiary money, don't do it. If the bank thinks something is wrong, they will put a hold on your bank account and the FBI will talking to you. From what I have read it takes a while to get the hold taken off of your bank account.

                            Happy ending to story - my daughter and I found the perfect uggs on nike-trade.com, for $65 less, ordered through paypal, and then found all the complaints against the compnay. I immediately logged back into paypal and saw the sellers name was in chinese, not english, so I got nervous. I emailed paypal and the email address that had been at the bottom of the paypal confirmation, and lo and behold, I did get my money back the next day!

                            I was also reading on some other website on how to identify fake uggs and it states that although it's an australian company, the boots are now actually made in china.

                            Regardless of if they would have been fake or not, I am glad I got my $125 back! I paid for an item via paypal one time and the person closed their account before I could get my $ money when the camera never arrived...

                              Worship Empire appear to be a fraudulent company that take your money but don't send the goods. Insult to injury - Paypal so called "secure payment" wash their hands of it - after the event. Surely they should keep closer tabs on defaulting companies and remove the Paypal facilities rather than letting more and more people fall into the same trap.

                              Fortunately this lesson only cost me £11.65 - but had I used a credit card instead of Paypal I could have claimed the money back.

                              Paypal response was:

                              After careful review, we have concluded our investigation of the Buyer

                              question if they become available in the seller's account in the future,
                              and will take appropriate action against the seller. Such action may
                              include issuing a warning, a temporary restriction, or terminating the

                                Paypal Merchant Servicessecond visa card glitch/lousy customer service

                                As an independent business person who deals with many overseas clients, I've been a long-time user of PayPal's convenient online invoicing and payment services. PayPal traditionally requires some sort of bank collateral in order activate a user's account. In my case, it's been a Visa card I've used for several years.

                                THE PROBLEM: Unfortunately earlier this month my Visa card info was stolen by an online vendor (NOT RELATED TO PAYPAL), so my bank canceled that Visa card an reissued me a new card with a new number. When I went to update that Visa card information on my PayPal account, PayPal refused to accept the new card and displayed the following message:

                                "We cannot link and confirm your card at this time. Please link a different card or confirm a card already attached to your PayPal account."

                                Despite repeated attempts over the next few days, PayPal refused to accept the new card, always displaying the same error message. Meanwhile my account became inactive--I could neither send nor receive payments, because I now had no valid card on file with PayPay. I sent an e-mail explaining the problem, but never heard back.

                                Today I finally called PayPal customer service, and after being transferred to several different departments (and in one case being disconnected entirely) and being given several explanations as to first: why I shouldn't be getting this error; then second: why I was getting this error, I was told that the PayPal system was set up to accept only one (1) Visa card.

                                Yes, according to customer service, the reason I cannot not update my Visa card information is because the PayPal system is set up to accept one (1) and only one Visa card. If you cancel that card, your only option is to register a non-Visa card, e.g., Mastercard, Amex, Discover. I kid you not.

                                Fortunately I have a Discover card, so I registered with that (and now I have to wait 2-3 days to complete a convoluted acceptance process).

                                What annoys me is the amount of work I had to do in order to uncover that information--several days of fruitlessly filling out the PayPal credit card forms, an ignored e-mail request for help, then an aggravating hour on the phone with PayPal customer service.

                                    I think that is not a right solution of your problem. Paypal customer service should help you regarding to your problem. I am using Payscout.com and when I lost my visa card then Payscout easily accept my reissue card in just few minutes.
