PayPal and eBay are Crooks

Hi, I would like to share my HORROR story because Paypal and Ebay are crooks.

I will try to make this short:  Basically I bought a course called “auctionsforincome” about how to sell on Ebay, well I bought this course and it says how to use dropshippers (companies that have items for cheap) so you sell items you don’t currently “own” which they have and then collect the money pay for them and send them out to the people that bought them on Ebay. I asked Ebay if this was legal and they said yes that’s fine there is no rules against this as long as you get the item to them. Okay well I sold a TV, I used paypal because I thought it was secure! YA RIGHT, As soon as I wanted to take the money from Paypal Account to Bank Account so I could pay the company since not many companies accept PAYPAL. They FROZE $5,500 and all purchases made Prior to withdrawal!!!! People have sent the items already, and they took the money back from them. Of course I get grief from 6 people or so. What makes me mad is that I talked with the guy several times about the condition of the TV and how I will obtain it and he is completely fine, we are still good as it is right now. Paypal and Ebay teamed up. Why would Ebay cancel the payments made other people for seperate items, before the issue was resolved with Paypal? 

EVERYONE WATCH OUT!, SOMEONE NEEDS TO START THERE OWN ONLINE PAYING SERVICE!, THAT ISN”T HOOKED WITH EBAY RIPPING PEOPLE OFF. I DON”T EVEN KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN NOW I”M SURE I WILL GET THE SHORT END OF THE SHAFT AND PROBABLY BE ACCUSED BY SEVERAL PEOPLE BECAUSE THEEIR MONEY WAS TAKING OUT AFTER THEY SENT THE ITEM.

THANKS FOR NOTHING PAYPAL.  To all you who read this, just be careful about selling items that are worth some money. You have to get verified several times before you can accept money with payal and then once your withdraw limit is “unlimited”  since your “VERIFIED” YOU STILL GET BURNED!

    We have made a series of bad experiences with Paypal and Ebay. Both companies seem to support crooks and give a damn about their paying costumers. Sadly they get away with it breaking all imaginablr rules, because they can. I wished there would be an alternative to Ebay and Paypal, or someone would crack down on them. In the main time we just have to grit our teeth or avoid them all together.

    Well i am facing the same kind of issues with paypal and ebay
    i started selling things on ebay and pay pal where things were not in the right direction

    first the limited account and then to wait for 21 days to get released by them( meanwhile the ebay and paypal use that money in stocks and broking to make profit) even if they keep it in banks, they earn interest( whcih is in millions)

    then it comes to selling fees which is too much, going higher and higher
    then the sellers rules and buyers protections even they left negative feed back, the buyer abuse you, the buyer made u feel sick, the buyer done this done that or even kick your ass straight away, means from every corner the money is going in the deep hole of ebay and pay pal….

    my account was restricted on ebay, i made another one, that was was limited and banned , i made another one they limited the account on ebay as well as my paypal.
    lost fees and so many things, now i hve planned never ever to use bloody ebay or pay pal in any case, they are just ripping off money, and since this is their business, they dont give it a shit…be ware of….

    Paypal customer service is the worst I have ever experienced. My son died as a missing hiker in Canada, and to get to his funds for an item of our own over $500, they make it impossible to get the funds.

    Paypal is heartless, and I will never use them again, no follow up phone calls, when you try to give them what they want, they change it or smoke screen you, they are beyond terrible!

    Oh how can I count the ways ebay and paypal try and steal from the very sellers that keep their site alive..

    Most recently I was told 5 different lies about opening a ebay store and the benefits of said store. I wont even go into the lies, but once I found out how many lies were used to sell me this store I contacted ebay. I told them I was happy to pay for my 1 month use of the store, but that I would not pay a 65usd early termination fee. I was told no problem “full 65usd refund”. I was only credited 63.83usd. Dosnt sound like much right, but bottom line is THEY LIED and this to me is stealing PERIOD.. If ebay thinks they can pull a fast one and get an extra 1% here or forgets to reinburse you for a cancelled sale they dont hesitate for a second and just blame the problem on a computer glitch.. what after 20 years eaby dosnt have these “glitches” fixed.. I call BS, its not an accident, its not a glitch, its how ebay makes extra billions every year from “mistakes”.

    I will add more stories soon, I find ebay trying a fast one at least once a week if not more often!!

    BEWARE and make sure you save as many screen shots and all sales records outside of ebay!

    I had bought lots of things through paypal and ebay but when one didn’t arrive I got nowhere with them. So much for their 100% backup it’s not worth the email it was sent on. Complaints just go around in a big circle and the only thing they say is contact the seller..

    Ebay are as crooked as it gets and it seems they don’t give a shit about their buyers instead they protect the thieving crooks of sellers. I bought an item from speedypumps1 on ebay , i payed for it and the assholes never sent my item , i contacted them and they gave me false tracking details, promised me a refund then ignored me ever since, i opened a case and they ignored ebay case. I tried everthing with ebay and they found in favour of the seller WTF !!! and they removed my negative feedback which is supposed to be there to warn other buyers. They are a joke and a bunch of criminals . Ebay you can get stuffed i will spend my money elsewhere !!!

    I’ve always been afraid of purchasing on-line and my experience with ebay and paypal have confirmed my fears.

    Bought items on ebay (first mistake) and payed with paypal (second mistake). Item was never received so the vendor (from China – BIGGEST MISTAKE) was impossible to track (ebay tracking system not working in China?) and vendor insisted to ebay that the money was returned. Ebay did not believe me so neither ebay nor paypal would help me quoting “Caveat Emptor”. Lost my money and negative feedback was deleted from ebay site.

    I thank ebay and paypal for making me a more educated consumer.

    Ebay often remove negative feedback left for sellers.

    Paypal closes disputes before a party actually receives their full refund entitlements.

    They are both corrupt. Can’t wait until Amazon.com opens in Australia next year.
