How I got screwed by PayPal:
First, sell item to verified user on Ebay for $175. The buyer pays via Paypal.
Next, ship item to buyer. Buyer leaves positive feedback about item on my Ebay account. Buyer enjoys item (it was a one time thing). Seller misplaces shipping receipt since Buyer left positive feedback about receiving item, and Seller assumed everything was done.
Three weeks later, Buyer cuts off communication with Seller and initiates “charge-back” thru credit card used in purchase. Ebay and Paypal start investigation.
The whole time Paypal keeps telling Seller; dont worry, this is standard stuff. “You did your part”–even though temporarily lost shipping receipt. Paypal says just wait til investigation done. Paypal stops contacting, Credit Card Comp sides with its cardholder, no reason given.
Paypal freezes Seller’s account (even though years of good record of service) until $176 refunded by Seller. Seller refuses.
That was 5 years ago. Paypal still won’t let me buy or sell thru them. I refuse to support someone who conducted fraud on Ebay, Paypal, CC, and most of all, me.
I plead for Paypal’s help. Not surprisingly, they NEVER help. Case closed!
