PayPal Took Money Away

Writer Wishes To Remain Anonymous

I sold an item on Ebay in late December 2004 for a total of $900 including shipping. The buyer paid through PayPal. I shipped the item via UPS a couple days later. It was received by the buyer and positive feedback was posted both ways. On February 8th 2005 I receive an email from PayPal stating that they have been informed the transaction was paid for with a bogus or fraudulent credit credit card and withdrew the funds from my PayPal account. I must now show proof that the item was shipped and go thru the dispute resolution on their web site.  I immediately sent them the tracking information and requested that my funds be reinstated as PayPal accepted payment and I shipped the item in good faith. I told them I felt this was an outrage as they should investigate the issue and IF there was a bogus credit card used that is PayPals problem not mine as they are the ones who approved the transaction in the first place. I have yet to hear from PayPal despite several emails and my $900 is in their hands at the moment. BEWARE OF PAYPAL!!!!
