Default paypal is sometimes bullshit! (rant)

Has anyone had problems with paypal before?


I login to my laptop last week, and logged off. Got home, and logged on paypal on my desktop, and it says that at the time I was on my laptop on the same date, a suspected third party logged in... ******, it was ME!


So in order to re-verify everything, I had to also re-verify my debit card, only to come to find that the code they sent me, was concidered, "old."

Paypal did this to me in Afghanistan. Is that part of the 7 step process? I had to verify my landline phone by having them call it and answering it. Yea like that was possible at the time. Took me forever to get that fixed. I hate paypal. But it's so convenient.

One time sold an item on EBAY, payment through PayPal.

The funds reflect on PayPal as complete, sent the item and next day all money was retreived back to the buyer or back to PayPal, but it was gone from my account.

Called them to ask what happened and some BS excuse about the buyer did not have sufficient funds etc. The only thing I know they never explained why, just stated PP needed the money back.

Another time bought an item on EBAY, paid by PayPal, it was a PC game, when received it was a illegal copy of the game. Sent the game back with delivery confirmation to India.

PayPal never gave me the money because it only showed it was taken to USPS store but there was no way to prove it was received in India. I was that is total BS, at least it shows the item was left on USPS, it is not my problem if it reaches the destination or not. So, twice have got burned making it a grand total of 32.00.

I know I have saved much more than that by buying online, EBAY and using PayPal.

About logging on different computers seems a little strange as we are always floating around on different computers accessing PP and never experienced such problem.

One thing I have learned is to always say NO to give my bank account info, only CC and thats it which I keep track of it daily.

In my experience, Paypal blows goats by the herd. I consider it a sometimes necessary evil.

GOD DAMMiT!!! Now that paypal has fucked me over royally, now my subscription didnt get paid so now adds everywhere!! ***** *****!!

Here is what im waiting to get verified now... my debit card (what I originally complained about), and my "bank account" of which was closed, and now paypal wants me to verify a closed account!! WTF!?! I hope after the debit card is cleared I can remove that account off it, so I can pay for **** again. Paypal IS an unnecessary evil... like car insurance.


Oh!! And they added a beautiful one!! My home address, AFTER I just sent a copy of my bank statement with the address, they still want to send me a piece of paper with a code on it to enter in!! Let me guess... when its punched in, it will say "Sorry, that is an old PayPal security code, please go **** yourself."
