No Problems Until Things Got Real Bad

By Jan Harriss

I sold an item on ebay. I mailed it on the 25. On the 26th, Paypal sent me an email saying  the buyer was complainng that they hadn’t gotten their item. The website “resolution” center gives you only 2 basic options: give a refund or show ONLINE verifiable proof that the item wa sent. So, the seller would have gotten the item on the 28th, and on that same day, Paypal sent the buyer back their money! Two days afterr they notified me!

So now the buyer has my item AND my money. And won’t return either. I no longer take Paypal. And it’s not just  happening to me, it’s Other sellers I know also.

Suddenly! I went 4-5 years with no hassle. Then this month, three complaints against me through Paypal. And same thing happening to others as well. What’s going on?

Thank God, I never ever verified my bank account with them. I knew if I did that, that they would have access to my account! Far as I’m concerned, Paypal can go screw themselves.

    Paypal really knows how to press our buttons don’t they?! Seriously after 1 day the buyer started complaining, I think that’s even against their policy. They are supposed to give your 7 days to ship out an item. I’m surprised this didn’t go in your favor. Maybe the ticket value had something to do with it. I found that they get antsy when you sell a lot of high price goods.
