Ok, not a major amount of money or anything but for me it's the principle!
I recieved this email just now from Paypal saying that they're taking £3 from my account due to it being fraudulent from a sale back in June 2008!!

What's that all about? Why has it taken almost 4 years?? I can't email them back or anything and I'm sure they wouldn't be bothered even if I did but don't you think it's wrong to just take it without giving any info or reasoning??

Will check myy paypal account then, but don't reckon it's a scam or anything as there are no links or anything are there. Not sure it's even worth the hassle for the sake of £3 anyway to be honest it just annoys me!
never ever use paypal

Without checking your PayPal account?
I would be writing a massive complaints email to Paypal, it's there responsibility not yours to check the users for fraudulent transactions. One of the reasons I hate selling on ebay.
2008??? Mother you know whaters.

no, your wrong, they screw everyone (except themselves)

i managed to break through their firewall of cut&paste replies, and claw back a measly couple of quid, that morally I should have not lost. The email that won the case, I said in all the years of being with them, I have not once seen them take a hit financially or give any kind of "gesture of goodwill" over a dispute/claim (not that I get/start many) they act neutral when problems occur, but take a nice juicy chunk out of each payment.

cut&paste kings of t'internet.
call them & ask...it's really out of order 2 take money from ur account after 4 years....i don't think this is legal....i would double check....i know is only £4, but it could have been a bigger amount!!! gd luck.
