— Totally Disgusted With PayPal

I am 71 years old and with the help of my son try to make a little extra on eBay to supplement my social security. Last year I sold a big order of IBM laptop parts through eBay (well over $100 — a big sale for my little account) and shipped it all via UPS to Florida. Two weeks later (approx) without warning Paypal removed the money ($150 including shipping) from my Paypal account causing all kinds of problems for me in payments and bids I was committed to on eBay with the explanation (after I complained) that the money had been received fraudulently from a stolen credit card (at the other end in Florida). I had shipped the IBM parts to a confirmed address, had done everything by the rules, sent all the information then to Paypal (including shipping information, emails from the “buyer,” etc), and was told they would get back to me in two weeks with their investigation information. I have never heard back from them — NEVER!

Did the police get the money, did Paypal just keep it, did the person who had the credit card stolen get it, did the credit card company get reimbursed, do I EVER get reimbursed, did they catch the thief, where’s my Thinkpad stuff, WHAT? Isn’t this some kind of Federal crime that Paypal has committed IF they did not give the money back?

De I emailed Paypal several times and asked (after a month or so) what was going on and heard nothing. To say the least I was and am totally disgusted and am now completely out of the eBay “garage sale” business and this was one of the main reasons. Thanks, but no thanks Paypal.

If you or your attorney direct any threats towards ComplainsBoard or its owners of this site, then said post will promptly and permanently be placed on our ineligible for arbitration list and the post will be locked forever. Our arbitration removal process is simple and straightforward, some foolish individuals chose other methods in an attempt to get content removed from this site. All of their efforts have failed and all of their arbitration offerings are permanently revoked. These individuals and or their attorneys have stupidly made threats, filed complaints with Google, filed DMCA Takedowns, filed court orders, complained to our web host, demanded or attempted to take legal action against the owners of this site. We have ZERO tolerance for this conduct and you can be assured that any removal attempt will ultimately fail!
Also, we just signed up with a site called Free Speech site that publishes legal threats and we will be sending all the legal threats we receive to. We will add a link to them shortly. The threats are published and indexed by the person making the threats and by the lawyer or other idiot who has never read Section 230 of the CDA and still wants to bother us with frivolous legal claims. In other words, your threats will cause your name to appear in another site, it’s what some call backfire. Don’t be stupid, you won’t scare us.
If you see the flashing text an alert “Ineligible For Arbitration” on any individual pages or post, then you should know that there is a ZERO chance of the posted content ever being removed. This ultimately means that the content will remain on this site indefinitely and there will be no exceptions.
