  1. Hi all, Have just over £10,000 negative balance on paypal. I have or had a gambling issue where it got out of control. I haven't touched any online accounts in just over two weeks. I can put in my paypal account roughly £500 per month. Should I contact paypal and set up a repayment plan. I received the following e-mail this morning. It's very important that you address the balance on your account today to ensure continued availability of your paypal account and to avoid additional collection efforts. Appreciate a
  2. Hello all, apologies if this is repeating other posters, but just needed some reassurance or additional advice: I was sc@mmed via an Ebay/Paypal seller. I sold a bike to a buyer, the payment was requested as bank transfer, however the buyer suggested using PayPal and all I needed to provide was my email for him/her to deposit the money to my PayPal account. The money was deposited, the bike collected (I didn't ask for a collection receipt as it wasn't a courier I had arranged). I removed the money from my PayPal account, and thought everything was good. Two days later, P
  3. Hi, I will try and explain the scenario that took place between my wife and PayPal as best I can. One morning, my wife was contacted via Facebook messenger by who she believed to be a colleague at her workplace. This was before Christmas and the colleague explained that her PayPal account had restrictions on it and asked if my wife could accept money into her PayPal account for items the colleague had sold to help with the cost of Christmas. Being the ever pleasing colleague she agreed. After the money appeared in my wife's PayPal account, she was instructed to then withdr
  4. Hello all, My sister in law received what she thought was a message from her friend asking her to accept some money from her Paypal account and transfer it down into her bank then transfer it to her friend’s bank. She received two payments from two different sources, downloaded £500 and duly transferred it to her “friend’s” bank account. Turned out that the message she received was from a fraudster and the money she received was from two hacked PayPal accounts and the bank account she sent the money to was not her friend’s account. I know she should have questioned why her
  5. Hi, I have an ebay and paypal account which are both blocked and can no longer be unblocked. I have requested for both accounts to be deactivated and my details removed as i can still login to both accounts. Both ebay and paypal have stated they cannot remove my details or deactivate the accounts, but the accounts are blocked and i cannot use them. I was just looking to see if anyone has any advice for me in regards to whether the above is correct from ebay and paypal?
  6. "See you in court" were among my last words during the most recent conversation with the eBay call centre in April 2011. Way back on the 17th of February 2011 I ordered a Macbook Pro which cost £570 from an eBay user who was later removed from their system for being a suspicious seller. The seller received five negative feedbacks in two weeks for attempting to con other eBay members. On the 22nd of February I received a very poorly drafted letter from the seller stating I will not receive the Macbook Pro, and the seller advised me to open an “item not received” case with eBay.

  9. I did something stupid, something that I have told my kids over and over again not to do, but I clicked on a Facebook link, to a Chinese shop called Sweet Offerz, advertising the Lego Hogwarts Castle, for half price. I paid using PayPal, but not logged into my account at the time, as I couldn't remember my password, and used a credit card for extra protection. As soon as I had made payment, I regretted it, and thought it was a [problem], so I immediately phoned both PayPal and my credit card company to see if I could stop payment, and explained that I thought it was a [problem], bu
  10. Good afternoon... I have an issue with PayPal . I have been frauded online and I've been left with a 7000 pounds negative balance I can't pay.. story is as follows. .. I met someone on a website called people per hour.. who wanted someone to help them sell items on eBay whilst I'll earn commission... I did this for 2 items and sold them to 2 buyers who then paid me via PayPal.. I then stupidly paid the money into my bank account and transferred it to the actual seller who then decided to go missing and not send the product to the buyer... Leaving me in the lurch.. the 2
  11. Hello all, I hope I've chosen the correct sub-forum for this post, but if not would you move it for me? I have encountered an interesting situation this past week and I wonder if I could have some advice on what, if anything, can be done about it. It's probably clearest if I just bullet point the facts: I have a computer graphics card for sale on Ebay Tuesday 12th June I received an email from a potential buyer by the name of Dorothy Baynham telling me they wanted to buy the card for their son's birthday and would I end the auction early and sell to them. Wednesday 13
  12. Hopefully someone can help me with an issue I currently have with paypal. I bought a bed online for £399 and paid with Paypal. When it arrived it wasn't as described. I followed the returns instructions on the seller's website which involved them organising collection of the bed. It went back to them and I received an email confirmation from them that they had received the bed back. They also said I would get a refund in 3-5 days. The refund didn't show up and I raised a claim with Paypal. I explained in my claim that the item had already gone back to the seller and I had confirmat
  13. Good evening all, First time posting here and I'll try include everything in this message. I would really appreciate anyone's help on this matter. I sold an item on eBay and the buyer claimed back even though I sent proof of postage, it was a signed for service but I do not have their signature but tracking shows the item as being delivered. They didn't accept my case. PayPal didn't care as the initial case was with eBay. My PayPal account was in minus for a sum of £900 for around a month and a half, PayPal wouldn't listen to me just kept forcing me to pay even though I didn't

  15. Hi I received a PayPal Working Capital Advance nearly two and a half years ago when running my own business. I folded the business last year (sole trader so everything was unsecured and this is the only thing I was in debt to) and had been maintaining repayments until October last year. between workload, an upcoming employment tribunal and the neighbour from hell I managed to forget all about it. I also missed the three notification emails they sent re: notice of intention to terminate (I get an amazing amount of Paypal [problem] emails so I've not opened any for
  16. I have a negative balance of £320 but can only afford little payments, I’m hoping to be lucky and not get any letters etc untill jan at least I will have it paid off by then, Hi, I have a negative PayPal balance of £320 (first time) and can only afford one payment each month, I was spending money I didn’t have and now suffering the aftermath, iv read loads of posts about what happens but how long do you actually have before PayPal close account or sell the debt to collection agency’s? Do people actually come to your house or do u just respond to letters and phon
  17. Good evening, I need some advice as I am having trouble with a charge back via PayPal for an item I sold back in early January. I sold an Samsung Galaxy S8+ in early January 2018 via Gumtree, I got an offer from a user (who's name on Gumtree did not match the one on his PayPal, this was an alias apparently) and we agreed to an offer so I sent him my PayPal details etc and he sent me his address. I sent the phone via Yodel 48 which was booked via Parcel2Go and it was delivered the next day with a signature, however, I got some very abusive emails from the buyer claiming I nev
  18. A few days ago I completed a few transaction over LocalBitcoins.com to a buyer named Muumbis (currently blocked) who seemed to be a trusted user, had good feedback and 2 months of multiple transactions. The buyer sent me the funds through a PayPal transfer, and then I proceeded to send/release the bitcoins to his account once the money hit my account. These transactions were very profitable to me, amounting to about 40% of profit over the then exchange price of bitcoin. Only after 6 PayPal transactions amounting to a total of around £11000, I noticed that the person’s details included i
  19. Hi guys. First time poster. Came into debt with PayPal. All my own doing. It was £1100 and I've since reduced it to £400. I'm stretched until pay day next month and appear short of options. Any advice? As they said debt collection agency may get involved, which probably worries me more than it should. Just hate having things like this unresolved. Thanks.
  20. Hi I purchased a sofa on eBay from an actual company, as opposed to a private seller. I paid using a credit card, but as it was on eBay, it went through PayPal. I entered my card number directly, rather than using it as a funding source, if that makes sense. I.e. it was a direct purchase with my card rather than PayPal being used as a staged wallet. I make this distinction because I wanted to know whether this gives me any section 75 rights. So anyway the sofa broke after 3 months. The wood supporting the legs broke so the legs went up inside the base.. Although it was only £1

  22. Hi , Just wondering if anyone could help . my daughter sold an I phone 6 on E Bay on the 20th June , It was in perfect working order .

  23. Hi, I cancelled a web hosting service a couple of years ago, and it wasn't unreasonable to expect billing ti also be cancelled. The service was paid via PayPal Subscriptions, I didn't realise I had to cancel this myself and small payments (5 a month) have been continuing without me realising until recently. When I spotted it, I contacted the company and cancelled the PayPal subscriptions, however, I'm having some difficulty getting the money back from them. They advise that because paypal charges them transaction fees, they will refund me but first want to deduct these fees.
  24. I am struggling to close PayPal and EBay accounts of my late Husband. Using the contact us forms doesn't appear to produce any contact from either of them. Has anyone had experience of closing these accounts - thank you.
  25. Hi, I recently sold an iPhone on Ebay. The customer had damaged his/her phone, and then messaged me on Ebay and then finally purchased the second hand device from me. Everything was tested before hand and working. However, the customer decided to use it for 3 weeks and then ask for a refund using eBay's Not As Described policy. The customer actually messaged saying they've now purchased an iPhone 7. The whole thing sounded like he/she purchased my phone just as a get me by until he/she got a new phone. he/she eventually returned the phone and it was not in the same c
