PayPal none activity fee


Recommended Posts

I dont use PayPal, just dont like their business model.

 

Anyway, like everybody else i opened an account about ten years ago with them , used it once. Sent them an email to cancel immediately after..

 

Today I received a letter saying that unless I started using this account they would charge me a £9 "none usage fee".

 

I just wondered, if anyone else has received one of these?

Customers who don’t have money in their PayPal accounts won’t be charged, no matter how long their accounts have sat dormant.

My letter is dated 23rd November, yes it sometimes takes me a while to get through my mail. It says

 

You account has been inactive for twelve months..............inactive account,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,unless reactivated.. fee £9.

 

I will look through the stuff you kindly provided.

It seems to be legit, it states that i can avoid this by logging in.

No idea what my codes are, and besides I dont want to reactivate it.

 

Cheeky monkeys.

I dont doubt it is legit...whether the charge is lawful is another question.

Whatever you do don't try to access your account through the links in the email. Go directly to the PayPal website and access it there.
