Re: Join Class Action Lawsuit

I want to join a class action suit against PayPal. They are protecting Chinese scam companies by facilitating fraud via wire transfer of funds for fake merchandise with prior knowledge. That prior knowledge makes them an accessory to the fraud.

I agree ! Somewhere after 200-300 complaints they should have stopped this fraud. I let you know how they respond to my last claim😡

Re: Join Class Action Lawsuit

If we can get one going, be sure and throw Facebook in it, also. They are allowing these fake companies to advertise on Facebook!

Re: Join Class Action Lawsuit

I could not agree more.. Facebook is where plenty of the ads come from. That's how I was sent to PayPal to purchase a product advertised on Facebook.

Re: Join Class Action Lawsuit

I’ll throw this out from another victim in Oklahoma: Well, after researching the history of Paypal and these types of scams, it is fairly clear that Paypal is not only making money of these type of scams, but most likely are actually running these scams and using these bougas companies as front to mast their involvement. If you look at Paypals Buy Protection and refund policies, alone with their Seller Protection and the fees associated with using PayPal as a seller, you can clearly see how Paypal is using this and other scams as a revenue generating vehicle that is bilting untold millions from their customers that their online commerce business is setup to protect.    Ebay and  Paypal are own by the same company, and has the identical "Buyer/Seller Protection Policies. With Amazon, AliExpress cutting into Ebay's business  while Apple Pay, Google Pay, Square and other smashing Paypal's business it looks that both companies are turning to fronting "scams" as a business model to generate  part of their companies revenue. As the very same "scams" are becoming common on Ebay. I've have bought stuff from Ebay for 15+ years and not 1 single time had I ever bought that was a scam. That was until Dec. That’s when you’ll notice numerous ads for the same product from different companies all at once.   All these "scams" seem to have a few things in common that once you know what to look for makes them fairly easy to spot. (Until they change things up). 1st. is the item for sell is will be under $50 US. This price will be a "good deal" and the normal price of the same item would be double if not more. 2nd is the Company/website contact information is only a email address. No customer service number. And no company address listed. 3rd. Free shipping  which just make the deal look that much better. 4th. You will not receive an email with any tracking information useable. Their tracking will consist of saying “in process” or “ in transit” with no change for months. Then if that item arrives,it will not be anything close to what you order and is worthless. All these work into PayPal/Ebay business model on how to make money upfront and on the backside off scams they front. With the item cost below $50 they have figured out that large percentage of the customers who get scammed will decided it's not worth the hassle after reading all the hopps you have to go though to get a refund using their Buy Protection.  So say if that's 70%  of the people that got scammed, their money lost is free money to PayPal /Ebay who front these scams. So the other 30% who open a case to try to get a refund, the first reply from Paypal/Ebay will be to offer you 50% and you don't have to shipped the junk item you received back.  Again whatever percentage accepts that is giving PayPal/Ebay free money as they only have to refund half of the money that they scammed you out of in the first place. And to the rest who refuse the 60% refund will now be offer a 100% refund only after you return the item to some place in China and you must pay for the shipping . Once you provide a tracking number (something you never got from seller) You money will be refunded in 5-30 business days. But here's the catch. They shipping will be $35-$45 to return a item that you paid under $50 dollars for. So PayPal?Ebay are counting on you refusing to paid to ship the item back. Once you do that, they will close the case and will not issue a refund. At this point its' straight 100% profit for them and never spend a dime to make untold millions......

And I fully agree PayPal makes it impossible to contact them by phone, email, etc. The only option is to write to them at corporate headquarters, the old fashioned way. And I believe it will never be read, or responded to.

I believe that eBay and PayPal are separate companies, and when that split occurred, PayPal went haywire.

Re: Join Class Action Lawsuit

Paypal have Just done exactly what you wrote in your message. An email was sent offering me 35% refund and I don't have to send it back. I ordered a item and got a $2 item.No way was I going to send this back. I have another claim going for exactly the same thing brought a $45.98 USD item and received a piece of metal in a ring box. Paypal need to be held accountable for all these scams and facebook to for advertising them.
