    i have read that paypal's "resolution center" is biased in the direction of the buyer; but their ill treatment of me sucks the fat pierced one.

    an ebaymotors azzhoal purchased some USED wheel covers from me. the ad mentioned "curb blemises" and a pic was included in the ad.

    this picky, pithy azzhoal buyer filed a refund claim, saying that the wheel covers were "significantly different" than the auction description.

    BULLSHIOTE!!

    paypal deceides for the buyer, a refund is given to him, my palpal account reflects a negative balance now.

    the picky, pithy azzhoal buyer than mails them back, choosing an address that i have not lived at for over 5 years, NOT the return address that was on the package i mailed or OR my paypal primary address and residence address.

    so now i am out of the money, plus the buyer will get the package returned to him in the mail.


    HOW IN HALE CAN PAYPAL AUTHORIZE A REFUND FOR WHAT HAS NOT EVEN BEEN RETURNED TO ME??

    this picky, pithy azzhoal buyer made out well on this transaction! i bet he lists them on ebaymotors and sells them.


    who can i complain to about this injustice? the BBB, federal trade comission..who?

    any suggestions?

    Login to PayPal.
    Scroll to bottom of page.
    Click "Contact Us."
    On next page, click "Call Us" then follow the instructions to call them (they make you jump through hoops).
    Scream at the top of your lungs at the asshole on the other end.
    When they tell you to calm down, remember they are required to be calm...you're not.
    Continue screaming and cursing and calling them mother fuckers and stuff until you get your money back.

    Trust me...that process works every time! icon_biggrin.gif

    i have gone thru their "jumping thru the hoops" appeal process. they have denied me at every step of the process.

    calm, polite faxes have given NO relief.

    time to go verbal on them!

    Ebay can be useful, but every transaction is a gamble. Don't risk more than you can afford to lose.

    In my experience, it's generally a waste of time to pursue chargeback cases with PayPal, or AmEx, or anyone else. If you do get anything back, the time and effort will cost more than it's worth. I lose money to scammers every year, but so far, it adds up to less than 1% of sales. It still hurts though. There are people out there who run these little scams every day, like it's a way of life for them. All you can do is black-ball them and move on.

    I did get screwed by PayPal on an equipment purchase this year though. I know it's buyer beware and all, but they do post the big "guarantee" logo right on every Ebay page. The seller shipped the equipment by motor freight, after weeks of delay. So it turns out that the "PayPal Guarantee" expired before I ever received the junk.

    ...Also recall a case where I sold a heavy item to someone who provided an incorrect shipping address. They had a "forwarding" order in place, and UPS automatically charged ME the cost of re-shipping to his new address, which was about $50 more than I sold the item for. You might check into that.
