I wait for PayPal to return the funds while I continue to incur overdraft fees
I’m in the process of moving and my only income is disablity. A friend of mine set-up a fundraiser (through one of those websites) to help raise money for the move. She was able to raise just the right amount for me to make the deposit and first months rent.
I had to pay twice the deposit unfortunately because of my bad credit. I decided it would be best if I broke up the funds in order to balance what I have in my personal checking account and what my friend had raised me. I deposited $300.00 into PayPal and within a few days (before it “posted?” to my PayPal account) I began to use my PayPal debit card. Mind you, PayPal had the funds basically “dwindling” in the air for about six days. To my surprise I began to realize the funds were not being released into my account while I was using my PayPal debit card and just a few moments ago, I went online and had a glance at my checking account – I am now overdrawn -264.00 and guess what? The $300.00 “POSTED” YESTERDAY TO MY PAYPAL ACCOUNT! So now I’ve had to bounce the funds BACK to my checking account and wait for PayPal to return the funds while I continue to incur overdraft fees. Thanks PayPal – you did a fine job this time!
