Another PayPal Victim

By Gary

Message sold mirror on eBay to ******** for $18.00 via paypal. I received funds thinking all is well! 6 weeks later receive email from paypal deducting back my $-18.00 pending investigation for unauthorized account use!

I contacted ******** whom bought my mirror asking to return it to me. I never heard back from them. I called paypal on phone and they told me that since I didn’t have their protection plan I was out of luck. Now recently I receive an email from paypal stating that the investigation is closed and they will not credit my $18.00 back into my bank account.

I am without payment and out 1 truck mirror. I am closing my paypal account Monday and changing my bank account number. Pay Pal needs to be investigated by the attorney general in my opinion.

    At least it was only $18.00, they duped me for $1,100 after processing with them for YEARS! I no longer want to even use ebay. Do you know if paypal works with Amazon? I want to start selling with them instead.

    When pay pal opens any investigation you are in for a headache!!!! Good luck, I hope all goes well.

    This is in response to Denny, not too sure if Amazon is compatible with paypal but that is the lease of my concerns.

    Paypal makes no sense in they way they work sometimes. Did you show that your customer was happy with the product to begin with? I would gather up all supporting documents (emails, feedback, etc) and open an appeal. I understand it’s not for a whole lot of money but it’s the principal that counts.
