You can start an individual law suit if you want to but others have spoken to lawyers who won't touch it as paypal are doing exactly what is agreed in their legal user agreement.

You may spend out a few thousand more in legal fees than what paypal have held though.

But you can't do a class action law suit anymore as per link.

Sadly legally that is no longer possible, you would have to take your own private legal action.

That article should be posted on this site in big letters. People encourage others to join a class action lawsuit and they jump in before investigating. 

I’d sue in Small Claims Court. PayPal might not send a representative across the country for a small amount of money. I can argue my case individually and not be lumped together with others. The filing fees are not substantial, usually around one hundred dollars, and you can request reimbursement for your fees. 

I have to file locally and I want my $30 back for an unauthorized purchase on my credit card. I wrote to the company CEO to avoid court and am waiting to hear from them.

Thanks Dell14z I didn't think about small claims court. I live about 45 minutes from Paypal so they may send someone to court but I'm sure I have a strong case because they keep saying I owe them money for Items I sent back to the seller and I sent them proof that the seller received all of their items back.

If you’re sure that you are right and they are wrong, it’s worth the filing fees to sue. Class action suits take time and you want your money back now.

 

Good luck!

If the charges were unauthorized that is fraud by banking standards.  call your Credit Card Company and report it as such.  They will dispute for you.

How did this turn out? I am about to file my claim. They want me to commit mail fraud before I get my refund.

It is now. They are holding back billions in stimulus payments after promising faster stimulus payments.
