My Personal Paypal Nightmare

Writer Wishes To Remain Anonymous

Hello, I would like to add my paypal scam to the other “horror stories”.

When using paypal’s service, not one time did they help me reteive my merchandise back from customers who had filed chargeback complaints with their credit card company. EVERYTIME, I was out the merchandise and the money because paypal does nothing to help a seller with a chargeback. They just put a hold on your account for that money and you have to make the account back positive again and never get the money back (or your merchandise).

I finally got fed up with this and got my own merchant account (which I have had over a year now and is wonderful!! I had a fraudulent person attept to scam me with a chargeback and my payment service won the claim for me and I got my money back recently).

This is something that will NEVER happen with paypal because they will not fight the chargeback claim for you. I did have one final chargeback with paypal after I quit using their service and I never put the money back in the account and left it negative. They didnt respond not one time when I asked for them to help get my merchandise back and I decided I was not going to be out the money and my merchandise yet again over their poor service so I left the account negative.

Recently I got a letter from a collection agency over the $212 with paypal so I called the agency. They told me that I should just pay the money or paypal would turn it in on my credit and that it was too bad I didnt get my merchandise back. Too bad indeed… Consider this a warning from an honest seller to not use paypal. (Over the 5 chargeback compaints I had with paypal for the 3 years I used their service, not one time did I win and not one time did I get my merchandise back. EVERYTIME I provided proof that the item had been delivered to the buyer).

And to add to that: my husband used his own paypal account last summer to buy me a birthday present ($400 worth of Tiffany jewerly). The seller was a fraud and sent an empty package.

Paypal didnt nothing to help us with the claim and stated that it was not their responsibility. They told my husband that they wer not responsible in any way. It took us fighting with Discover and paypal over a year to get the money finally refunded to us.

PAYPAL IS A SCAM; I WOULD NOT USE THEIR SERVICE AGAIN AS A BUYER OR A SELLER IF YOU DONT WANT TO GET CHEATED.
