Re: PayPal Theives?
I have to say I've only had one issue with paypal, although a pretty large one.
Over two years ago I sold a power amp and preamp on the bay, and received the payment on paypal. Everything seemed very normal, the auction ended on a friday, and I of course would not ship until all payments cleared. Pretty typical overal. Well, of course with the weekend coming the payments did not clear till the following wednesday, I think. So I ship off said items, and a day or two later I'm getting emails from a buyer demanding to know why everything is taking so long. I've dealt with hasty people before, so I responded promptly, giving a tracking number. I shipped the items regular insured ground shipping(as stated) and on day 14 I think I get a dispute with paypal. the buyer contacted the other buyer so they could both dispute (mind you the shipping was 7-10 BUSINESS days, not actual days). So of course long story short they both received items exactly as listed(after one left a negative feedback claiming I was a thief, one left a positive "great *bayer!!) So I think the dispute should be dropped right?...NOPE. I called paypal time and time again, and not a single rep or anybody would help...they basically just kept saying to send in a check or authorize a payment of $500 or so. I contacted the chief complainant, who informed me he dropped the dispute. Unfortunately to make a long story short nothing was ever done to aid me...so my account was locked rendering my multiple positive **** feedbacks useless. I eventually give up on the paypal deal, say **** it and move on. Well, I go on there a couple weeks ago and what do you know, not only is the account locked...I now owe about a thousand dollars or so, and have been informed a collection agency has been contacted. Multiple more emails later and nothing. I just opened a new account and still use paypal...but am furious. I basically just told them I have Zero intention of ever paying a thousand dollars for an issue that should not exist in the first place.
