Where do I start? First of all I don’t have a business on eBay. This business is not associated with eBay at all. Basically, I resell data feeds and made a lot of money within the month of November. Now, I had an uneasy feeling because Paypal immediately held the funds in my company’s account. I was told to wait 21 days and then the money would be release in small increments. Last week, I finally receive barely 10% of the nearly $4,000 in my Paypal account. I call and spoke to a representative who was nice at first and even handle some of the issues relating to my account. This past week, I was unable to get in touch with the person and spoke to a VERY RUDE supervisor who told me to be patient and the money will be release each day. He “claimed” there are a lot of scams going on and all businesses accounts are being held on hold or money be release. This sounded too fishy to me. So, as of now I had to put my business website on hold until I can find another merchant. Some is telling me these bottom feeders are going to limit my account – an account I had for almost 10 years with no problem – and hold my money for almost 180 days! It hasn’t happened yet, but this past week I have been getting the run around and after the hostile conversation I had with a very unprofessional supervisor I am more convince they got something up their sleeves. STAY AWAY FROM PAYPAL AT ALL COSTS!

    My friend transferred $3.5k of funds to his Paypal account which has now been frozen. He is a 20 your old (in Australia) who has saved this money to pay for accommodation on a Canadian holiday. He is now unable to pay for his accommodation, due to fly out in a month and has had no assistance from Paypal even though he has provided all information that they have asked for. Absolutely horrible company.

    Dispute it with the bank or charge it back.
