    • Dear BankFodder, thank you.  I have to say that I did also fall into the category of "if we didn't accept mediation it would go against us in court" and to be honest I was happy with what we were awarded despite the fact that at the moment there is a serious doubt as to whether we will actually receive the awarded sum as we are unable to return the faulty item??   Please accept my ignorance but I am confused as to why this is anything to do with the Post Office as the claim is again Parcel Force, based on their T&C's when the contract was taken out with them.   With relation to the settlement agreement it clearly states on there that " the parties will keep the information contained in this agreement confidential and not use it for any other purposes"??   Thank you      
    • I have tidied and formatted the layout ...and a few typos.The content is really your own words and evidence in support of your initial defence and therefore is not nessessary to add any further.   regards   Andy
    • I'd appreciate a bit more advice on this complaint. After the non budge phone call they've actually emailed me this morning which I've copied below.  I have now complained to the fos but haven't heard anything from them yet. Should I respo d now to this email, and if so what should I write? Or just leave it now to the ombudsman?  Thanks again   Good afternoon   Further to your recent email, I have reviewed your comments about why you didn’t complain about your loans until now, and I need some more information from you. Please be aware that without speaking with you I may not have enough information to come to a conclusion as to whether or not the 3 year exception applies to your circumstances.   Please can you provide more information to help us understand what led you to make your complaint. Was there anything specific that triggered you to make your complaint? Please provide as much information as you can.
    • Considering the wear was on the inside tyre wall and not having a ramp or lift in my back pocket I unfortunately did not want to crawl under a car in a showroom. By the way no tyre kicker here, I did my research on the car I wanted and price I wanted to pay, found a dealer with good customer feedback and took the car for a test drive. All I did wrong was trust a car dealership and as you say maybe if they valued a customer they would offer to pay for the tyres, but I suppose we can put dealerships in the same boat as estate agents....blunt truth!

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

PayPal debt and Westcot debt collection - Fraud buyer

Recommended Posts

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, PayPal indicate that the the person who deposited the money didn't receive the bike and the money will be paid back.

Now I am missing a bike and my PayPal account is negative £900.

 

I argued strongly with PayPal, explaining the details of my case, supplied the CRN, all conversations with the buyer, etc, but with absolutely no joy. I haven't had any formal communication from PayPal about paying the debt, however, this week I started receiving communications from Westcot (2per day at present). Their number is blocked and I am making a log of their calls.

 

My question is, how do I know if PayPal have sold my debt, or have they just instructed to recover it on their behalf?

 

If they have sold the debt, am I legally obliged to pay it back?

 

In my eyes I don't have a debt and it was PayPal's decision to give the money back from the process of an obvious [problem].

 

I am quite happy to go to court as I believe PayPal are assisting and allowing fraudulent transactions to take place. It is apparent their security is flawed, and I would love to fight this, I'm just concerned that if PayPal sold the debt that they created then I am tied in to paying Westcot which clearly I don't want to do.

 

Any advice on this would be very much appreciated.

 

Clearly I haven't disclosed all details as its quite complex, but nonetheless I have been the victim of a this and PayPal facilitated this.

 

Regards.

Simply put - They havent sold your debt...

Wescot will act as agents. I owe Paypal £88 - This was for a failed transaction where I didnt receive goods but it didnt register and they still took payment (I reversed it)

Wescot have tried to enforce this with me - But they have gotten nowhere.

 

Dont worry about it - Please just go live your life :)

paypal/ebay can do nothing to you

its part of the business structure to absorb these sc@ms

 

they happen 1000's times every year probably by month.

 

simply ignore everything

they can do nowt as they are based in luxy.

no DCA have ANY legal powers

they are NOT BAILIFFS.

 

simply ignore

use a few differing details if you ever need ebay/paypal again.

 

moved to the online stores forum.

Hi Thanks for the feedback.

 

Reading the other threads it seems people have been able to remove their associated cards and bank accounts from their PayPal account to stop them taking money (supposedly) owed. When I try and do this I just get an error saying there is a problem and can't complete at this time.

 

Should I be worried, can PayPal enforce a debit from either my bank account, debit card or credit card that is associated to Paypal.

 

Just to clarify i have never set up a direct debit, have only ever used PayPal to pay for items bought from online retailers.

 

Westcot are now pestering me 2x per day. I'm just ignoring at the mo.

 

Thanks again in advance.

Whatever funding sources are on paypal ring the relevant bank

Cancel any CPA's and tell the bank they are not to honour any further payment requests of any kind to paypal

Hello, as I see a couple of people have commented again about this is issue and removing funding from PayPal, I wanted to clarify what has happened in this situation from when I posted this thread.

 

I tried removing cards and linked accounts from PayPal, and it does not work, all I get is this error "We're sorry, we're not able to process your request right now. Please try again later",

 

I have tried numerous times since this saga began and get the same issue, clearly PayPal put some kind of block on the function.

 

Instead, i did cancel all my cards that were linked to account,

I do however have a bank account linked,

but I do not have a direct debit agreement,

so I am sure they can't instruct a withdrawal.

 

I spoke to all of my banks who said they would refuse any PayPal transactions that occurred without my authorization.

 

just to clarify, in my personal experience, PayPal will not let you remove cards/accounts ( I doubt this is legal?!), but thats how it is with my account at least!

 

To close the matter, and to help with others who end up in this situation,

Westcot pestered me everyday, twice a day, for approximately 6 weeks, i ignored all correspondence (letters and phone calls).

 

Then it all went silent and i haven't heard anything since mid December 2018.

 

Fingers crossed it remains that way.

Thanks for the advice, it really did help me to ignore those DCA clowns.

yes you cancel the CPA's that way it works.

it used to be that you could remove funding sources, as I have just checked and you can.

but im not 'overdrawn to Psypal' as you might have been.
