My nerves are slightly more settled and I’m hoping for a decent nights sleep tonight for the first time in a while

. Should I try and talk to PayPal or is that just a waste of time?

Quick update. 
My PayPal is nearly £20,000 negative balance and as been for just over a week now but yet no calls or letters off them. My account as been restricted obviously and my friends account that I was sending money to then sending it straight back to mine as been restricted also, stating “your account as been restricted due using it in a questionable manner”  

is this common in this situation?

there is an old saying, I used to worry about my debts so I stopped paying them and then the bank had to worry instead.

Compartmentalise these parts of your life, live in the current bit were you are getting on with things andpay off the debt at a rate you can properly afford once you have chenged your behaviour. Youmay need help with your gambling problem so aseek it. Also  do nottake part in any scheme for money transfer or wahtever or you may get a knock on your door at 5am because the people you are dealing with have also been arrested fior money laundering.

How do you mean “people I am dealing with” ? PayPal or the DCA ? When I pay the money back in small parts it’ll be straight to PayPal and nobody else.

I’ve never heard of PayPal being prosecuted for money laundering? Or do you mean allowing it to happen?

Could the way money was transferred back and forward be seen as criminal ? Was the behavior fraud ?

 

Are Paypal likely to involve Police to investigate ?


We could do with some help from you.

its a very well know fault shall we say.

losses all built into part of their business model and insurance coverage against such.

This question may have been answered before but is it wise to send money from my new bank account to PayPal (bank transfer) or would they then be able to take what they want from my bank account?

Not had any letters or phone calls from PayPal BUT today I’ve received a text from WESCOT asking me to contact them! Is it best just to totally ignore them?

I owe eBay nearly £40 for sellers fees, obviously PayPal declined this so I’ve got an outstanding balance with eBay now. How do I pay this without giving them my bank or credit card details? On the website the only way of paying is with PayPal or debit/credit card details

Wigwambam let me tell you of my experience about two years ago I got scammed on ebay due to a high value item I sold the purchaser then did a chargeback stating the item had not arrived. Typical really despite me providing proof that the item had been signed for they debited my PayPal account by £1900.

 

spin forward to now I closed the bank account linked to PP and got a few texts from a company called Alkninka then went and blocked those also I occasionally get spam mails from BPO Collections House which I ignore.

 

Paypal operate in this country however as far as jurisdiction is concerned they are based in Luxembourg there fore they can’t take to to court even more so when you consider what happens at the end of January.

 

they may instruct a DCA to try and persuade you to pay however, due to the jurisdiction issue they won’t take you to county court they can’t since Paypal don’t pay taxes in this country and they are based in Luxembourg this would be fatal to any DCA claim.

 

put this down to experience and get on with your life pointless worrying over a Paypal debt.

I got in touch with EBay via email asking them to send me info on how pay my fees by bank transfer only, they got back in touch saying I need to set up a “direct debit” first and sent me a link to do so, on the link I have to type in my bank details, sort code etc is this correct for me to do or does It open the door for PayPal to gain access to my back account? I’m frightened of giving my full bank details away and then wallop!

The £38 outstanding balance is to EBay not PayPal, I know one owns the other technically but does the same rules apply to eBay with negative balances? I owe £19,000 to PayPal and £38 to EBay as we speak.

you cant pay ebay, that's paid through their payment portal..paypal.

pers i'd not be doing anything yet or at all.

 

they shouldn't run a system that allows people to do what you have done thru gambling .

the fact that they do, is all part of their overall business model and is designed to absorb such losses....

after all its far cheaper to lose a few £10k's of pounds a day than have to pay £B's in uk tax.

Right, so owing EBay is just the same as owing PayPal basically? There is nothing legally they can do?

never seen any evidence they can.

 

the only paypal thing to ever be careful on is paypal credit / credit card, they are just a branded UK card run by a UK creditor.... Newday.

Is Paypal and Paypal credit the same thing? in which case could Paypal Credit take you to court if you walked away from a £4k debt?
