Just posting this snippet from the e-mail I received yesterday about the Canadian debit card I have being 'cancelled'.
Here's what PayPal had to say:
We've received your request to close a PayPal Business Debit Mastercard® tied to your account. There are several possible reasons this card may have been closed, including:
If you believe this action was done in error, please contact us as soon as possible at 1-866-888-6080
So, apparently, as per the e-mail, I had requested the card to be cancelled.
I did call. The number I called couldn't help and had to transfer me to a different department. Then they got on this line and advised what really went down. And since I didn't receive the original e-mail in March, this was total news to me.
And the e-mail announcing that the card was cancelled was pretty aggravating and WASTED my time on hold trying to get to the bottom of things.
I thanked the person on the phone on PayPal's behalf - for finding yet ANOTHER way to make sure they lose my business.
Probably close to $20,000 in PayPal fees paid since joining.
Glad the marketplace has responded with a plethora of other options!
NO REWARD FOR MEDIOCRITY!!
And yes, I will be contacting a federal ombudsman in Ottawa to see if they can handle a complaint against PayPal. It's time for some consumer rights to come first over corporate greed.
