Can't transfer money to my bank account

 I'm actually trying to transfer money from my PayPal balance into my bank account, but it won’t let me. It keeps on saying there is a problem right now, and to try again later. This problem was showing up yesterday as well, so I called PayPal customer service, and they representative I spoke to asked me some verification questions so that he can lift the security check that was placed on my account, which was stopping me from making the transfer to my bank. I passed the verification test, but it still wouldn’t let me transfer. The representative tried doing something else, and then once again tried the verification test, and I passed, but still wasn’t able to transfer my money to my bank. He then told me to try and make the transfer into my bank the next day which is today, but it still wouldn’t let me. He said if I can’t make the transfer, then to immediately contact customer service again, and he said he’ll leave a note mentioning that I passed the verification test. I made three phone calls, but every time it would transfer me to a representative, it would just hang up on me. So I decided to send an email instead. Please try to solve this problem, I really need to transfer the fund. 

Thank you.

Re: Can't transfer money to my bank account

i'm having the same problem.  I called customer service after 3 days of not being able to transfer, read out the credit card information I have on file to lift my security threshold and they said it didn't match even though I was literally reading it off my paypal ACCOUNT SCREEN and that I would have to call back in 24-48 hours to try and be verified... what a **bleep**ing joke.

Re: Can't transfer money to my bank account

Been Trying for 2 weeks now  to get my money.......same story exactly.

 

They sure didn't have any problem getting their money out.   They got it before Ebay did.   That was 1 month ago.

 

I'm starting to wonder if this company is all a scam.    I finally got a manager and his suggestion was to stop trying to remove the money.

 

Really?   And you guys want to be a Bank?    Is your head office in Venezula?

 

Right now I don't have any confidence I'll get my money out......over 10k.

 

Poor website,   Terrible service,  and possibly crooked.

 

Open playing field for a new Company to shine.

Re: Can't transfer money to my bank account

I've had the same problem (plus another)

 

First, it took multiple days to link an account, sometimes partially working. Contacted support and kept trying and it seemed to work in spite of support saying it shouldn't work because of a security problem. The error message just keeps saying to try again later, nothing about a security problem.

 

Second, after I finally added the account, I cant transfer any money out. I've tried multiple times for multiple amounts. Contacted support, they first said there was no problem, then there was, so they would try to resolve it, then they cant resolve it. All whilst saying they cant tell me what the problem is because the algorithm doesn't tell them. So I spoke to a supervisor who said he tried something, cant promise it will work, try again over the next few fays. All the error messages are terrible, just asking to try again...

 

Totally unacceptable, can't believe this is meant to be the 'future', will minimize my use in the future until they can regain trust (probably never).

 

And any idea that this is a special approach to increase security is not convincing, other banks manage it and not ever being able to access your money (a strange definition of security) is obviously not an answer!

 

Very disappointing.

Re: Can't transfer money to my bank account

Having the same problem. Went through all the security checks and passed. I received an email saying my account has full access again and I still can't transfer money into my bank. I hate PayPal and once I transfer my money into my bank im closing my PayPal account. Why is it so difficult to access my own money. **bleep** you paypal

Re: Can't transfer money to my bank account

Same issue. Money received into my account and I passed all verification. I cannot access it. They do not know WHY. THEY DO NOT CARE, CLEARLY. JUST THE SAME OLD BS, KEEP TRYING. THIS IS A LOUSY ROTTEN SCAM OF A COMPANY, LEADING PEOPLE TO BELIEVE THAT THEY WILL SWIFTLY HANDLE YOUR MONEY SITUATION BUT IN REALITY THEY HAVE A PACK OF FUNCTIONAL ILLITERATES WHO STUTTER AND STAMMER AND MAKE STUPID SUGGESTIONS LIKE USE DIFFERENT BANK ACCOUNTS. I AM NOT DONALD TRUMP. I DO NOT HAVE 20 BANK ACCOUNTS. I HAVE ONE CHEQUING ACCOUNT ONE SAVINGS ACCOUNT ALL IN GOOD STANDING. YET THESE JERKS HAVE MY MONEY AND WILL NOT RELEASE IT, DESPITE ME PASSING ALL SECURITY CHECKS. PayPal is a complete scam. They should be closed down for violating fair trade acts. They mislead people in order to get their business.
