Class action lawsuit against PayPal

Hello all, I’d like to reach out to everyone who is tired of PayPal’s sick policy and sketchy business. Here what lead me to this: I was paid by 2 friends money as friends and family. When I went to withdraw the first payment to my bank they said there was a 72 hour delay plus the 1 day to withdraw if they didn’t find a issue. The second one I withdrew to my debit card and they also placed a 3 day delay. I have already talked to an attorney and it appears it isn’t the first time PayPal is sued for placing unjustified holds on funds. It appears PayPal is only holding funds to gain interest from the money. Also: it states in PayPal’s policy’s that holds are randomly placed to a very small percentage, yet both of mine in different days were placed on hold. Fun fact: PayPal has already been sued in 2015-16 for these same unjustified practices.

Re: Class action lawsuit against PayPal

I would surely join in with this class action law suite. I am so tired of them holding up the funds. It seems like they are finding ways to hold up money and no one has the authority to do nothing. I am so livid with them and their **bleep**. We need an attorney to handle this and set them straight or shut them down permanently.

This is the exact problem I have having, and the 2k in my account is for rent and I have called them everyday for 2 weeks emailed them over 15 times about how I can get my money back for rent & if not then I just want to know WHY my account was closed and they refuse to give me an answer and the supervisors keep hanging up on me. now I am going to be homeless next week and they are still refusing to release my money.

I’m really scared I cancelled a transaction for $507 back in September and they charge me for it every month. Soon I will not be able to pay my mortgage because it’s a big chunk of change. I can’t afford a lawyer to fix it and they don’t know how. They should not be handling bank accounts .

Re: Class action lawsuit against PayPal

HI, I'm not sure how the hell they can do that ! Close your account, whatever but to keep your funds? Total BS! I'M NOT GETTING HOW IT TAKES DAYS TO GET MY FUNDS IN MY BANK ACCOUNT! I pay things and it doesn't take days to take the cash out, so why take so long. Also there is no .25 cent option for fast transfer however, my transfer was in there within a half hr! That was nice. We Will see if there is a delay this time. Was your bank account verified? Cause they did say u get faster transfer if it's verified. Mine is so maybe that's why I got it Same day I will let u know how long todays transfer takes .

Re: Class action lawsuit against PayPal

They just did this to me and are now holding $300 of my money. They said it will be held for 180 days. When i call they say there is nothing they can do. They have to hold it in case of chargebacks. This is bs.

Re: Class action lawsuit against PayPal

I am most definitely interested in pursuing this this year I'm having is that apparently PayPal user agreement says that they don't endorse or affiliate with certain types of business basically that's the polite way of putting it so I am a model on pornhub... PayPal is an option to receive compensation I had an account through PayPal and I signed up everything was fine now because it's pornographic material and they don't approve they've decided to deactivate my account and I can't use PayPal not sure how that's possible when they do business with pornhub. I'm feeling slightly discriminated against in a little bit of press because it's like as soon as somebody figures out a way to come up they got to do something to keep them down. How can PayPal legally shut my account down because it's tied into pornhub if they don't deny every model I have the email saying that PayPal works as a payment method for some but then others PayPal decides to deny and close their account so why are they picking and choosing who can be a model and get paid and who can't their business is to distribute the money not tell you how to spend it where where to spend it there's nothing illegal about what I'm doing so I'm not sure how it's legal for them to just close my account. and like I said the one that keeps sticking with me how come only certain people can get paid through PayPal on a site such as that that seems a little discriminatory like something don't add up

Re: Class action lawsuit against PayPal

Hello Heaven, I’m sorry you’re going through this ordeal. It sounds to me like you’re just trying to make a living. I think the first order of business for you-if you haven’t already done this-is to research alternatives for payment that of course don’t compromise confidentiality. Unfortunately, I’m not positive a class action lawsuit is still a possibility, since apparently PayPal has taken advantage of a recent law that allows them to deny class action lawsuits. I may still look into ways to get around that law, but sadly, as you know, it’s difficult to find the time for such things when one is busy trying to make a living. You mentioned discrimination in your post. I wonder if you have a discrimation case. If they told you they won’t process your payments because of what you’re doing for a living, it sounds like discrimination to me. Best of luck to you. Keep your head up lady!
