Do Not Trust Paypal!
I will share with you a story.... Not good if you use Paypal. This is true and happened to me:
I purchased a LCD TV on eBay from a verified and confirmed Paypal member. It was a scam and they took my money and sent no TV. Several others were taken by the same seller for different items. I used my Washington Mutual Visa card to pay on Paypal.
I protested to eBay who deposited $175 (or something like that) back to my Paypal account after they verified it was a scam.
Paypal told me tough luck, even though they were verified and confirmed. Paypal said they could not contact the member and could not get me any money. So, I contacted Washington Mutual & told them I was scammed. They reversed the charge and I got back my $1328. Paypal in their infinite wisdom did not like the charge-back and decided they could not get anything from the fraudulent seller so they took my Paypal balance of $400 and then told me I still owe them $928 more. I argued the seller owed them not me. No go. They go for the easy money, so they came after me. I totally refuse to pay this. The victim should not have to pay.... so....
It went to collection where I provided the collection company with a police report & they are for the moment off my back. I can no longer use Paypal since I still have a -$928 balance with them. We'll see how it ends, but bottom line: DO NOT TRUST PAYPAL TO GO TO BAT FOR YOU. They will not & only have their best interest in mind. With my whole heart I will tell Paypal to take a hike
since it is all about them and not protecting you, no matter what they tell you... Just my two and a half cents...
