Dub1 Avatar
8y, 9m agoPosted 8 years, 9 months ago
all items ive got off here ive paid using paypal

i did use my account i used a debit card (joint one in missus name)

3 people have contacted me now saying payments have been put on hold

any idea's what could be going on (its happened to me b4 when i was seller and paypal wanted tracking details to proove they were genuien transactions and not money laudering etc i geuss)

im real worried now as its happened to 3 people ive dealt with

some transactions where over a month ago

all transactions have been paid etc (can send a mod a net banking screen to show payment taken etc)

any idea's what it could be ?

i made this topic so those who have contacted me can post etc im 100% genuine and want to try get this sorted

hello dub is everything ok with the drive? u recieved it today i hope?
if so can i get some feedback :)
oh thanks for payment all went through
#2
Have Paypal not contacted you ?
If no you're best to contact them and find out what's going on.
What does it say about the transactions when you go to your online account ?
Have you paid your sellers by Echeque by any chance ?

Muffin247 everything arrived safe
but then so did all the other sellers items one deal was over a month ago
its happened to me b4 when i was the seller but all they wanted was the tracking number to proove it was a genuine and not just a bous deal or money laudering etc
hottoshop no paypal have not contacted me i used my debit card (well missus but its a joint account) and the money have been taken balance decreased etc one deal was over a month ago
payment was instant not echeque m8

I thought a debit card automatically used echeques hence the delay in payments. Credit cards are instant.

ive spoken to paypal and they are saying you have used potentially fraudulant funds, sorry dont mean to make you sound bad or anything, its just the way they worded it.
basically they said you need to check your funds and maybe add to it, for myself, they said that if i provide tracking numbers/postage reciepts then i am protected as a seller. i will need to dig them out though.
they also mentioned that it could just be a system error and it will all sort itself. however,it does require your input.
i really am starting to hate paypal now, they take a cut and for what? to just sit back and leave us all to it!

Paypal put an investigation onto the transaction for which i recieved payment for items from Dub1. in the meantime i have a negative balance and cant use it :x
Tracking details have been submitted, so just wait to see what happens now.
its a good job i had a record of the tracking number in a PM that was sent as i didnt have the tracking number ticket as it was discarded once i got confirmation that the Dub1 recieved the item.

HINT: if you ever send anything via recorded delivery then post the tracking number in the thread then you should be able to come back to it if ever anything like this happens to you.

i use a debit card on my paypal and payments are instant.

if a mod can give me a pm ill send them my a bank screen for each transaction etc to show funds have gone from my account
i really dont get whats going on, when this happened to em b4 as a seller they just made me provide tracking details
could be it be because i used my missus card vut its a join account
this is the email they sent to the seller
One of the benefits of using PayPal is that we make every effort to alert
you to potentially problematic transactions. Our goal is to help you make
sound business decisions.

From time to time, we request additional information about PayPal payments.
This is a security measure meant to protect you from problem transactions.

We would like to learn more about this transaction. Please log in to your
PayPal account and provide some information.

We strongly advise that you do not send the item until our investigation is
complete. If you have already sent the item, please log in and let us know
where you sent it.

We have placed a temporary hold on the funds until the investigation is
complete.

thats what i told them, seems a simple enough solution but they kept going on about tracking numbers saying that we should all keep them for 3 months! whats worse was that he sounded like a robot, a french robot.
#12
yea see thats what happened to me when i sold a dreambox
i had to provide proof it was posted and proove it was genuine and not a fake
but why has this happened to 3 of my transactions and not all of them :(
#13
also i have all pm's ever sent to me so if u sent em the tracking details but no longer have the ticket let me no and ill check my pm's and send u the details i saved all my pm's as a text file
#14
as u can see here it shows 2 of the paypal transactions and its goen through taken the money and im still £9 or so in credit
can show all problem transactions if needed

thanks for the offer Dub1. i dont doubt for 1 minute that you are genuine. i wouldnt have dealt with you otherwise. :thumbsup:
i will wait to see what happens with the investigation. hopefully it will all turn out OK. fortunately i dont have anything to pay via paypal at the moment so its not a problem being in negative for me.
will keep you updated with any progress. thanks.
#17
ok m8 if your sure but i dont mind eitherway
all i no is after this is all sorted ill never ever use paypal again
as its not fair they take the money from me and then dont give it to you
all i can think of its either cos its a join account or they just doing a spot check so want id to proove these are genuine transactions
this did happen to me as ive mentioned a few times after i sold on hotukdeals
and once i sent them tracking details all was fine
#18
I'm having problems too dub1, payment's on hold.
#19
u can see my statement on page one it shows money has been taken
i can pay u again via BT and u can refund me once your account is sorted if u wanted m8
most are syaing its a random security check and they are asking for tracking details to proove these are genuine transactions
i bet ist down to making a payment using a debit card and not my account directly
#20
I don't doubt that you're genuine either dub1, your correspondence has been exceptional and you've been a very helpful buyer. I would like the money sent via BT though as I am short on cash at the moment (recently married, wife's expensive!)

Thanks bud.

Refund sent m8 let me no u got iT ok and if u can once sorted refund me back that be great
#22
Money received bud, thanks!
#23
I had the same problem and it was all down to using a joint named credit card but my paypal account was in my sole name only! hence they said I needed the other halfs name on the account too,I didnt bother just went and got a sole named credit card for me and added that to my paypal account and have never had any bother since.
#24
Ok i've looked and looked but cant find my recorded slip. I have one for a few days after but its to someone else and i have them for 6 months ago. GRRR

Would it have been sent to another name besides Tiffany ****** ??
#25
Funny but I had a call from paypal verifying a ebay transaction the other day,the first time in the 8 years of having a account,maybe they are tightening up
#26
found the tracking number m8 pm'ed u it
#27

not sure why that is i no it had to be collected from the above post office and was signed for etc
can take a pic to show you i have it here
#29
I believe you.....It's just parcel forces muck up. Hope paypal dont look too much into it as they will see it's not collected(even tho it has been) and they not give me my money back. £41 is alot to lose.
#30
dont worry m8 u wont lose £41 i wont allow u to be out of pocket as ive stated ill pay it via BT now or when ever m8
im 100% genuine and the last thing i want is anyone to think otherwise

thats an interesting point, Dub1, have you tried applying another card to the account and see if it solves the problem?
im not that desperate for cash but it does give me a deadline of 6th march to resolve it.
will keep you up to date though:thumbsup:
#32
see thats the problem rather then using my account (as i only have a bank account linked to it)
i used the missus debit card (which is linked to no account)
so i clicked on pay for the item then clicked on the bit to fill out the card details etc and send payment
what im thinking may of happened is either
1) its cos its a joint account both same card numbers etc (only security number diff)
2) its cos i made 6 or 7 transactions on here alone using that card but not linking it to an account but just making instant payment instead
but dont worry bluntside m8 as ive mentioned a few times ill make a refund via BT if u want and u can refund me sorted
i wont allow no one out of pocket
all i ask is when the money is returned people are honest with me and refund it back (thats if they go for the BT option)
#33
You say the missus card isnt linked to paypal ??? How about trying to add that card to your paypal account and see if that changes anything.
#34
As bluntside stated...I'm not that hard up for the cash just yet either. But will be soon as that was going towards a ds lite for my other daughter.
#35
ive pm`d u dub1 as my paypal payment now has status of "placed" i dont doubt you m8 , if you could just reply to my pm to let me know whats best to do, thx.
#36
ive replied m8
i think it may be best ive i paid u 3 via BT and then u lot can refund me once sorted (unless u are really sure u dont mind waiting)
so far ive worked it out ive done 5 transactions on here
one ive already refunded, and 1 i only paid 2day so he aint sent my phone yet and 3 left which is the dvd recorder a monitor some pc part's
i paid for a hard drive yesterday which he says his funds are fine
i may be offline for the rest of the night im not 2 well (think this is making me feel worse lol)
but if u let me no what u want me to do ill do what ever as long as u guys are happy
#37
im willing to wait , hope u get it sorted soon, i also have deadline of 6th of march to get it sorted though.
#38
oh dear just gotin to find my payment has been reversed from the bank after i sent it and funds on hold! tut tut paypal
#39
yea thought it may happen as would be weird to allow one and not the other's
can only apolagise to you like the rest and offer to pay via BT and u can refund me once sorted if u wish
if u reply here or pm me let me no ill read it in the morning
banned#40
I must have missed it, but what did paypal say when you rang them asking why this has been done?
