So just a brief update.
A month ago I cancelled all bank direct debits and debit cards on file with paypal and explicitly stated to my bank Nationwide over the phone to ensure they block PayPal from making any deductions or payment requests. I since got a new debit card and have not logged into paypal since.
Randomly I received an email from paypal yesterday stating that I made a payment of £1.00 to ebay. I couldn't understand how this could have happened if paypal don't have any payment details of mine. I logged into my bank app to confirm and saw a £1.00 ebay paypal fee. I logged into my paypal account and went into the payment section and to my disbelief they had my new debit card on file. I immediately rang up nationwide and asked how this could have happened and they said the following:
That it is not unusual for companies like paypal to contact Visa and request new debit details if the one they have on file has become unuseable or has been cancelled etc.
I said that this surely must be illegal and asked them why the transaction wasnt blocked in the first instance like I requested. They told me when it comes to visa it is out of their control. I obvioulsy lost it with them and threatened to close my account in which they put me on hold, then came back and said they have put a block on paypal and asked visa to refuse requests for debit card details in future. I have since cancelled my debit card and requested a new one.
Paypal have clearly made an attempt to get access to my bank account/debit card by means without my knowledge or consent.
They also seemed to have tested whether the card works with a £1.00 sellers transaction fee which I dont know what its for. Luckily they have not been able to deduct the £925 but obvioulsy could have done if I hadnt noticed the fact they got my new details.
What should I do now regarding this? So far only the financial ombudsman seem to be willing to pursue and help me with the original claim wih PayPal but I feel this is something additional that requires investigation.
any of your thoughts are welcome.
It all depends from who your manager is and what company you work for.
In my workplace (very large multinational) the super peetakers are the most respected.
The rule seems to be that if you tell everyone challenging you that they are victimising you and then you do whatever you want, you get rewarded.
So I joined this movement a long time ago but with a slight difference that I finish my work to requirement, no more, no less.
Just because I like the job, not because I feel I must please them.
Don't touch them owe me £500 since January 2019 make excuse after excuse. Seem they always have software problems sending money out. Keep saying they will call back or email nothing been chasing it now for 6 mths the phone staff always have the same banter we will chase it up and get back to you then nothing!
