hi not really the last contact i has with paypal said to get it sorted i have to give back the money my bank claimed back and let payapl pay my bogus seller and that would leave me out of pocket but acording to the operator i spoke to that would keep paypal happpy and give me back my account
how can this be justified
why cant payapl claim the money back from the seller and just let me have my account back ?
i was told to make my bank aware of the situation and so i did and they stopped the payment and noe i ahve been told its my fault for getting my bank involved which is what iwas told to do in the first place
so my worry is now how far will paypal go to get the moey from me if they are convinced i still owe it to them ??????
PayPal would instruct a person to contact their bank if they tell us that their bank account information has been compromised. If it's a matter of a payment that is authorized that the buyer is disputing because of non-receipt or because it's not as described, stopping payment on the transaction with your bank will preempt the dispute process.
When eBay pulls an auction, they do advise their buyers to contact PayPal if a payment has been submitted. This allows PayPal to help you select the best solution - stopping a payment at the bank can cause other problems on an account, so we'd prefer to resolve it via the claims process first. If no phone has been shipped to you, and the seller cannot prove that, your negative balance is potentially only temporary while PayPal investigates the bank reversal.
ok seem to be learning a lot here so perhaps you can tell me how long will paypal give the seller to contact them they have sent emails out at lest three times to my knowledge before this thing is settled

this is a copy of a messages i got from paypal today this is the fair system that is for the victim in a scam !! if so why am i geting hounded and threatended with action against me for money for a phone i never had or eveer likely to get and could end up in court ???????????????????/
no , i never even contacted my bank about the situation the only ones were ebay and then paypal, i had to close out ebay claim in order to file with paypal, the only others were the sellers. I was refunded today for one of the 3 so im still waiting for reply from canal boat or paypal, maybe.......It is a shame people place orders from sellers ,in my case another country and am yet to actually receive anything,...Pay pal contacted me and said because i had filed a complaint with ebay and had closed it out then i had resolved the problem, where as paypal told me originally to close action with ebay in order to file claim with pay pal. The problem with these sellers was never fixed. The items , all three were to be a wedding gift as a the items were separates that actually went together, needless to say NO GIFT to the bride .
