I purchased a 180 dollar item from newegg, which is a confirmed paypal sender, and my money was taken from my bank account right away. then realized I didn't have the money to spend, so I issued a refund, they gave me my money back to my paypal account but then BAM, it was put on hold. Why did they put it on hold if they know newegg is a legit source? It's been 4 business days. There is no reason for this, I'm extremely worried because I need that money. I have read a lot on here of people saying their temporary hold has not lifted at all, and this is a lot of money. i will be filing a lawsuit if I do not receive my money back.
Has anyone here had a refund actually returned to them with this "temporary hold"?
They're **bleep**ing me, too. I'm waiting on a $200 refund from GoDaddy, that has already been submitted to PayPal. All of this happened back on Tuesday, before PayPal processed the payment, yet they decided to pull the money out of my account on Wednesday and put a hold on the refund, so now I'm in the negative.
They don't even have the decency to respond to my inquiry...
Yes, I received a refund (paypal sent me an e-mail too.) On Juy 4th they put a temp hold on it. On uly 6th it removed. However, and I use my checking accoutnt not a credit for paypal, it's not showing my credit anywhere actually IN my account. I'm going to contact PP about it - maybe they'll answer me????
