How does it works? Customer must login to their PayPal account and go to their Message Center wherein they can find the Chat Support option in which they can interact with our customer service representative as they have the capacity to view your account.

Re: Can I reopen a dispute?

I have the same problem but a different case, this time I am sure of not receiving any items I purchased because I just found out that the merchant seller is a scammer. I'm hearing disabled and cannot reach customer service due to Covid19 crisis. I hope to seek help for this before it is too late. 😞

Re: Can I reopen a dispute?

I need help from Paypal and the community in resolving my case with a scammer. Unfortunately, it is my first time to report a dispute, 

I filed as "unauthorized transaction" but actually it is to file "not being able to receive the item" and that seller has not return any responses regarding the shipment of my goods. 

 

I feel helpless that Paypal would not look into this. Since the Case got closed automatically and that their customer service is unreachable now because of the Covid-19 crisis situation. I have purchased with the total of $19.98 x 6 transactions = $119.88. I can provide screenshots to prove my case. 
 
I saw this shop through facebook then it lead me to the website opting me to pay through paypal express with my credit card. As you can see the website and the website has the name  "Lingc.Youp" that is registered to the scammer's account in Paypal. I have also read and confirmed reviews and reports that the website is a scam newly registered last March 2020.
 
Website you can see is selling the scooter offering to ask buyers to purchase here through paypal express.

Hi @heretoresolve 

Thank you the swift response.  I do feel your frustration and i'ved been in situation before. No worries as we got your back on this.  Please try to reach out to customer service on the option i mentioned awhile ago which is via Chat.  If in case you were not able to get hold of a customer representative via chat then send us an email. You can send them a personal message from their facebook or twitter pages.

Re: Can I reopen a dispute?

@Itsme00 Me three. I will be reporting a certain business to the better business bureau. once upon a time, if you opened a dispute against a seller their account was placed on hold until they responded and/or resolved it. Which caused them to respond/resolve sooner. Truthfully why does paypal need for ME to escalate the issue? if the vendor hasn't responded in 2-3 days, that should be an automatic escalation. I'll stick to being a seller on paypal for now.

Re: Can I reopen a dispute?

Same here.  I found out, sadly, that Paypal will make NO effort in investigating fraud and take the side of the sellers.  What sellers are doing now is steal tracking numbers so they appear legitimate (they are technically legitimate because they are someone else's).  They post the number in the transaction and Paypal says that you got the order, even though even the shipping service (in my case UPS) confirmed that the tracking number was not for me or my address.   Paypal did not care
