PayPal / Ebay Allow Fraud

By Carlos

I just finish winning an auction on Ebay and went to pay for it using the button on the screen. When I went to pay using my PayPal account it would only allow me to pay using Direct Transfer or eCheck, the two least secure methods. When I finally got in contact with Custoemr Service I was told that PayPal employs analytical safeguards to identify patterns of high-risk transaction behavior in their system. I asked her what variables where they using to determine this she said she did not know. I asked how using Direct Transfer or eCheck protects me the buyer and she replied, “it doesn’t.”

PayPal offers no protection for using Direct Transfer or eCheck so if you end up being the victim of a scam which is becoming an epidemic on Ebay you’re out. PayPal’s so called Buyer Protection is another scam because you have to pay a fee for it and most of the time they will find a way to disqualify or dismiss a complaint. PayPal and Ebay are in the business of scamming both Buyers and Sellers. It’s no wonder why Ebay has had to adjust their earning projects in recent days. People are quickly finding out that they facilitate the fraudulent actions on their website and then play dumb. Their purchase of PayPal was just to increase their money making scam. The Federal Government needs to get involved and shutdown Ebay and Paypal.
