PayPal hates me...

So going back a few weeks now, about 3 or 4 weeks, I bought something from Ebay using PayPal to make the purchase. I didn't realise (by accident) that the seller didn't ship to Australia, so I contacted him immediately after payment and asked if he would either make an exception and I could pay extra, or if he would mind cancelling the purchase. He mututally agreed that cancelling was probably the easiest thing and so we did a mutual cancellation thing through Ebay.

PayPal then decided to hold the money from the purchase ($85 AUD) until things were cleared up with Ebay... well it's been cleared up for about 2-3 weeks now, and PayPal still won't give me my money back, though they can clearly see that the seller, Ebay, and myself have all mutually backed out of the deal and the seller ended up relisting his item and selling it anyway. No bad feedback was left and no hard feelings were had, but PayPal are being a bunch of dwarven clown shoes.

GIVE ME MY MONEY... [size=50:3hyi6pvj]I want to give it to Ashley XD[/size:3hyi6pvj]

Paypal should understand. Get them on the phone if you can. I've had a similar problem with PayPal that they graciously fixed as soon as I spoke up loud enough.

Your not wrong there, the amount of times i have had accounts frozen, funds on hold and never given back.

Trust me when i say i highly doubt you will see the funds again, when there on hold they actually take your funds and do stuff with them.

I guess I'm going to have to call them AGAIN... A friend of mine got the email saying "Your account has been locked and will remain this way. It cannot be appealed" or something like that... until I called them. I am a ruthless bastard with a stone fist... I made the girl on the other end of the phone cry, and my friends account got unlocked and he got his money back which they were holding (over $700 AUD). They are all tough and anti-you until you start rattling off various international laws and ways of screwing them if they don't comply with your simple request of returning the money that rightfully belongs to you in the first place. See? Now I'm all fired up and I'm going to call them and chew someones head off... and maybe thier arms too. :twisted:

Just remember that the person answering the phone is 99% likely to have nothing to do with the situation and shouldn't be blamed :wink:

The States aren't as bad as the media might lead you to believe. Wouldn't give it up for anything, my friend.

Funny paypal locked my account now too and want me to print off tome document and send a load of crap to them.

They can bugger off, only had 5 in there, but have officially lost all trust in them.

Moneybookers FTW!
