PayPal refusing to close my account.


PayPal refusing to close my account.

About 1 month ago, PayPal took $91 out of my account directly from my bank and transferred it to a random person. I contacted PayPal to cancel the money 11 times but they refused. I attempted to contact my bank and they refused to. I filed 3 seperate cases of fraud against PayPal and received back $61 of the $91 so far. PayPal alerted me that they did not give the $30 back to me the rightful owner but to the bank and now my bank wont return my money to me. I tried closing my PayPal account to stop them from stealing from me in the future but they placed a negative balance on my account and wont give me a reason for it.
