Like many others in this discussion, I have to blame myself for not sufficiently investigating the seller prior to purchase.
However, I do feel that PP's resolution centre is not fit for purpose, as neither online or by any other means, does it allow a buyer the option to input all their circumstances. Surely one should be allowed to respond to PP closing a case when there are pertinent details that don't fit on their form.
Particularly important in these COVID days when online shopping has increased. It would be great to find a public enough platform to shame PayPal into more transparent disclosure of their policies, and to provide an accessible and efficient customer service centre.
I BELIEVE PP IS IN SO DEEP THAT THEY COULD NOT POSSIBLY "MAKE GOOD" TO THE THOUSANDS THAT HAVE BEEN SCAMMED. THEY KNOWINGLY HAVE KEPT ALLOWING SCAM SELLERS TO STAY WITH THEM. THE SCAMMERS ARE EASY TO IDENTIFY. JUST THIS VENUE ALONE HAS IDENTIFIED MANY. THE RIDICULOUS PP RESPONSES ARE PROOF ENOUGH THAT THEY CONDONE WHAT IS HAPPENING TO US.
My personal favorite thus far is PP's ruling that a BBQ smoker (basically a charcoal grill), is "materially similar" to a face mask. Thus seller has fulfilled transaction to PP's satisfaction and buyer is scammed and case closed.
I'd like to see PP executives cooking meat using face masks (hold the meat with the mask and light a match?)
I agree. Seems PayPal doesn't give a $hit about the buyers. I'm still trying to get my funds back. This crap needs to be elevated to the FBI. Using the Postal Service for Fraudulent activity and PayPal just accepts the seller's tracking number with no other research dispite me giving them proof of wrong address and package size attached to the tracking number. Not sure how the sellers are doing this, but the buyers need a class action lawsuit like sellers did and WON!!!!
Are there any public spirited lawyers out there looking for a challenge? The evidence is so plain to see, but we aren't going to be able to fight this monster as individuals and sadly justice can cost money. Perhaps we could get a petition together on FB and see if it flies?
