Paypal are a bunch of *******
I have a little story to tell. I sold a phone on ebay, and me being naive I sent it as a standard parcel. . . . 21 days later I was wondering when the buyer would leave me my positive feedback, so I messaged them. They messaged me back saying they totally forgot about the phone as they went on holiday, and that they never received it.
I reluctantly had to cough up as paypal threatened to get the bailiffs invloved. Well, there was a big negative sign on my account for a while
What really annoys me is that crooks can open a paypal account, con people into sending money, and then close their account straight away but not before transferring the money into their bank account. Paypal will NOT refund/ compensate you anything at all
Why don't paypal just prevent people closing their account for a period of 14days if there's any transaction activities in their account :thinking:
One more thing, I read somewhere that paypal are owned by ebay? If that's the case then it doesn't seem fair how ebay take a percentage of your final value fee and on top of that paypal take a percentage of your final value fee + POSTAGE cost
