Hello all! I am writing here because PayPal support hung up on me 3 TIMES, before I could give them any information. I will start at the very beginning. I needed a laptop for University, and I decided to get one off of E-Bay. I bought the laptop for $375, which I definitely had enough for in my bank account. I noticed in my bank account transactions that I had the $375 taken out of my account, and then put back in the same day, under "Reversal of Payment". I checked my PayPal summary, where to my horror, I had $-375. I thought to myself: "OK, I have the fund, I'll just transfer them over", and so I did. So at this point, I have $-375 in Paypal, and $375 pending. Now, yesterday I checked my bank account, and noticed that now it was $-375, and after checking the transaction history, I can see that I have another "Payment to Paypal" transaction in there, for, you guessed it: $375. Also, I was fined by the bank for having a negative balance. NICE ONE PAYPAL. I don't know if they automatically take the money out of the account when you go negative, but the system should at least check if there is an incoming pending payment for the same amount as the negative. How will I get this fixed? Should I go to the bank, or keep trying to call PayPal support. I have to pay for bills, fuel, insurance, vehicle registration, etc. I don't have time for a flawed payment system! PS. The last $375 transaction from PayPal doesn't show up in the PayPal "ACTIVITY" tab at all.
