Regretfully, this may all be over soon. You see, PayPal just now, made me agree to updated terms, which now essentially state that "PayPal can remove ANY CONTENT AT ANY TIME" from the PayPal-Community forum. This means they are in the process of making a concerted effort to remove any and all messages that expose PayPal's gross negligence (and some would say "complicity with those committing fraud"). THEY MUST DO THIS TO SURVIVE! Currently, they cannot side with any PayPal user who was scammed by any of these China operated websites. If they side with even one PayPal user, they are now on the hook to reimburse and make whole ALL PayPal users globally (or at the very least, in the USA - let me not speak for other countries). Therefore, to survive, they must side AGAINST their users AT ALL COSTS! To prevent class action lawsuits and the like, they will no doubt be PURGING ALL CONTENT EXPOSING their negligence to their users, and their complicity with fraudsters. The great PayPal cover-up is afoot (in my opinion)!
Since I was successfully made whole, through CapitalOne/Mastercard, and so far my dispute remains successful and has not been reversed, I'm not sure I qualify to be part of a class-action suit. However, I still wanted to inform you of the new TOS I just agreed to in order to login to this forum.
I am so sorry you're going through this. Many of us have been victimized by fraudsters and then victimized by PayPal. Since PayPal gets a percentage of every sale, legitimate or not, they're complicit with the crime of fraud. Without going into the long story of my personal experience, I fought for what was fair and right. I filed a claim which was then denied. I refiled it....denied again. I mailed letters and supporting documentation to PayPal, I called them out on social media. I argued with them online. Simply put, I didn't give up. PayPal finally admitted that I hadn't placed the order for which I was billed and also admitted that the shipping information from the vendor was dated prior to the supposed order date. They agreed to refund my money to me. My advice to you is to keep fighting. It's a sorry shame that a customer has to go through this. PayPal advertises that they have your back which is a bait and switch if there ever was one.
