My Ebay Account Payment Said Unclaimed

By Neil


I recently paid for a couple of items with PAYPAL purchased on ebay. I paid via paypal web site as I had several other items to pay for at the same time. The PAYPAL web site said the seller accepted PAYPAL so I made the payment. When i returned to my ebay account the payment said unclaimed.

I emailed the seller and he said he used to accept PAYPAL but not anymore as it did not work for him so he closed his account. Meanwhile there is no way to reclaim my money because it was sent to a valid email address. It will be returned to me automaticaly after 30 days have passed. I am affraid that is just not good enough. this is my money and I want it returned as I told them in an email. They replied to say I would have to wait the 30 days and there is nothing I could do about it. I replied to them saying this amounted to theft and that I would contact my bank and the police if I had to. They are not interested.

I have not recieved my money back and I will close my PAYPAL account at the earliest opertunity.

Neil, A very discruntled PAYPAL user!!
