    • I have debts of my own and will sort another advice separate for them as now I’m not working and a full time carer for wife & daughter I’m struggling to pay them so will want advice on letters to send them for reduced payments etc But for now I need to know what to do about PayPal as its really making me worry and is making me ill but ive got to try be strong and put on brave face for wife & daughter I dont want them picking up on something is wrong & worrying me
    • Help & Advice wanted on PayPal debt please I had someone staying with me for a while before they moved away and they had access to my PayPal account and was buying a few things and giving me the money no problem but then unknown to me until it was to late they had a gambling problem also and last off used my PayPal to fund online gambling . They ended up using £5,000 through PayPal and the first I knew was when I went to do some online banking and seen £1200 went out of my bank for PayPal so I looked straightaway and stopped / cancelled my bank letting PayPal take from my account . Then I logged on to PayPal and seen transactions 1 after another this going to total the £5,000 so I unlinked my bank & cards from PayPal account . Then nearly 2 weeks after I started getting emails and messages saying my account was in negative balance for £3,800 because they already had the £1200 . I’m in a bit of debt anyway and struggling so for this to happen left me feeling very ill to find they have spent thousands and left me without anything no money to live on or feed family even at the time as that £1200 that was took out of my account was all I had, I’m very annoyed and feeling very mad and very ill. Ive no idea how I can put this right as got no work no money because My wife got struck down with illness and disabled and I also have special needs daughter so I’m now a full time carer for both wife and daughter . I need to sort this but dont know how or best way to go about it. Ive had emails from PayPal and ive replied and explained plus went on live chat etc and asked for it to be logged and for them to please come to some payment agreement even though I cant afford it I know I got to put things right somehow but had no joy in chat and was just told pay into PayPal what I owe. So again I get emails and I reply but not getting any reply back to my emails . Ive not told my ill disabled wife about this right now as it would push her over the top and make her more ill thinking about it and its her Nephew to top things off so I know it would destroy her . Ive tried talking to someone with PayPal in live chat etc and emails as said asked if it can be logged showing ive been in touch regarding this matter and need to try sort it and also asked for them to contact me in writing so hopefully we can come to some sort of agreement to put this right but so far its been about 31 days now since account been in negative and ive had no phone calls or letters from them yet So what can I do and whats best way to deal with this I’m trying to pursue the person for these funds as we speak but know I’m not going to get anywhere

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi everyone,

 

Bit of a nightmare this one

 

I went to Crete two weeks ago. Before I left, I called 02 to confirm the call costs whilst abroad. They relayed the charges to me and as I have a Black Berry, I thought I'd take another phone to avoid data charges. No mention about any issues with my account

 

Landed in Crete, received the welcome text to confirm charges. Then nothing, the phone wouldnt let me dial out or recieve calls for the whole duration of the trip. On my return (Tuesday) I found out 02 hadnt been collecting my direct debit from my account for 3 months I called and asked why they hadnt queried it on the first month, they said it was a technical hitch.

Ive lost work through this as Im self-employed and people have called my number ,not to find an answering machine but a dead tone

02 cant be less concerned, the guy on the phone said he'd offer two weeks free line rental, and I pointed out this was a minimal 'good will' gesture as I'd been without the phone for that time.

 

Im really peeved about this. Ive paid the outstanting in full (there wasnt any issues with the money) but even though Ive been onto them through a landline to an 0870 number for over two hours, and been in touch with their resolution team, Im still feeling hard done by.

 

Has anyone else came across this?

Or has any advise on how to complain in the most bitter terms possible?

 

 

 

 

Many thanks for looking

Irrespective of how you pay, legally the onus remains with you at all times to ensure your account is settled in good time. This is why Direct Debits are such a bad deal - you lose whatver the problem is. Yes, they're systems may have cratered and they didn;t take the money you autherised them to - but in cases like this you still have to make arrangements to pay by a differnet method.

Thanks Buzby,

 

I'll add that to the list of things I've learned today :D

 

It just seemed to be a real crappy way of finding out. No call, dead phone on holiday. I thought contractually they would have some responsibility, admittedly, I didn't check my DD, because I never have had to before.

Will do in future though ;)

 

Thanks again
