Re: PayPal criticised on BBC regarding lack of action on Internet scams.
I have just had an issue with this. I have had a PayPal acct for four years, never made a purchase and quite honestly forgot I even had one until now. A week ago I recieve and email that "my order" for a $300 car seat has been approved and is shipping to the bronx. I do not have a kid, or know anyone from the bronx, and never authorized this purchase. I contacted paypal that day and said this was fraud and disputed the purchase. PayPal after 4 days came back and said that it looks like a normal purchase and they would not remove it. Joke is on them because as I told them all the banking info on file has long been expired. Again they did nothing and now my account shows a negative balance. It's amazing the lack of customer service and security this company has. Compare this to a class a company like Amazon and you will soon realize PayPal is a joke. Even worse... dangerous.
