Negative PayPal Balance

By John Trotten

I made a purchase of a computer and paid through PayPal.  I used the wrong method instead of e-check.  When the company refunded the payment so I could use e-check Paypal put a hold on the money and then withdrew a like amount from my bank account which made it overdrawn.  They said that they had to put a hold on the funds until everything clearned through my bank.  Then they charged me a $20 fee for having a negative balance.  When the sale was completed with the computer company instead of puttting the money back into my account they gave me a paypal balance which I can only use by purchasing something through paypal.  How can I get my money back from before I close my account and cease doing business with paypal.
