PayPal account hacked and charges made

Someone hacked my paypal account which I haven’t used for a year. They charged my Amex card $327 and try to charge my checking account $327.90. I wouldn’t have know about if didn’t get an email notification from paypal. In which I got 3 emails from them.
1 email was a warning from paypal that my account might have been tampered with and the other 2 emails was the purchases of a Nintendo wii and a set of knifes from someone in Russia or Europe some were!
I called Amex immediately that night and told them of the fraudulent charges. And they said they couldn’t do anything until the charges go through and then they can dispute the charges to PayPal. And the next morning I called PayPal and told them of the situation and they told not to worry about it. They will file dispute on the charges and investigate it. And so took a day off of work to go to the bank and reopen a new account to stop the other

Returned item but never got refund.

I bought a product through eBay which turned out to be faulty. I contacted the seller who told me to return it and take a photo of the package and email it to them. I contacted PayPal told them what I had done the asked me to email the pictures to them and said that was enough. Five days later they told me they had found in the sellers favor because I didn’t supply a tracking No. Now I have payed for a product which I don’t have. I also reported the seller to EBay and their response is virtually tell someone who cares. No help anywhere, won’t be using their “services” again.

Screwed by paypal again…should have known better.

I have dealt with many paypal issues in the past, but this recent one tipped the boat. I sold an item to someone and they said it was the wrong item and filed a case. I responded with certainty that there was no mistake as I was the one who handled every aspect of this sale. UNBELIEVABLY they ruled in my favor.
The buyer started sending nasty emails saying that paypal told them to send it back etc. I thought they were just upset and making stuff up. Out of the blue a package shows up. Inside the package is a DIFFERENT item! Then the buyer sends an email laughing and taunting me.
I checked my paypal and the funds were released back to the buyer. I receive not a single notice about this whatsoever. I was completely blown away with what just happened. I called them and they could not answer my questions as why they gave away my money without telling me. They just said stuff like- so you did get the item back? You can just sell

PayPal is blocking me from using my debit card

Buying stuff on ebay used to be OK. having credit card transactions “processed” by paypal and declining their offer of an account was a nuisance but then last year I foolishly acceded and opened a paypal account. Today for the first time since then I tried to make a purchase on ebay. “the card you have entered cannot be used, try another card”. apparently I had to do something called “confirm card” via paypal.com. I tried that…. “your last action cannot be completed”. repeatedly. I unlink the card, try linking my bank account, (God I wish i hadn’t given them my bank account number !!!!). Nothing. Finally I tried closing the account, hoping that my card might work on ebay as it had before I joined PP. nope. “closing” a pp account only closes my access to it. pp continues to use all the information I’ve given them to block my cards. So I finally find the pp contact

Paypal is blaming technical fault for holding our funds

My daughter and I have been speaking to the customer services dept as there is a technical fault on her account which is preventing her from withdrawing her funds. I have been promised this would be resolved and She would be able to withdraw her fund or they have promised She would get a credit which also would enable her to withdraw her funds. This has still not happened.
She is a single parent which this money is important to her and She does need this by tomorrow (Oct 10th 2014).The amount is now around £200.00 as She have sold more goods.
I think the customer service in which We have been given is unsatisfactory and has caused her a lot of stress and extra expenses by her having to call the department to find out exactly what has been done to resolve the fault. Can PayPal just hold her money like that?

What the HELL is going on at Paypal when it comes to the bank transfer?

What the HELL is going on at Paypal when it comes to the bank transfer? I am so FUCKING PISSED at them I think I’d murder someone that even worked for them at the lowest level just because they were employed by this fucking company! AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!
I spent about a week (YES, a WEEK) just trying to re-establish my old account I hadn’t used in a couple of years. Yeah, 80% there, THEN, the damn mobile number NIGHTMARE!!!!! The old number was long dead, and I don’t have a phone (by choice) because I HATE THEM, and always have. So, when at 80%, they ALLOWED (yeah, I KNOW!) me to make the bank transfer. HELL YEAH, finally!! Uh, well, er, NOT QUITE! Yes, my bank did the transfer, THAT was FRIDAY! NOTHING! Ok, it’s a weekend, and it’s kinda late, so FUCK, wait until tomorrow! Saturday, I check several (MANY, MANY) times throughout the day, still NOTHING, not even a simple reply to my complaint. Sunday?
