Same here. Ridiculous. I was told that my money would be released upon delivery confirmation. So, I paid twice the collected delivery amount in order to expedite delivery and have buyer sign. I also insured to the highest amount. PayPal then said it was delivered to an address different from shipping. That was bull, as the address and zip code was identical, with only a ”W ” (directional) added at point of delivery. A day on phone with rude people that could not properly communicate in English...to finally be told my funds had been released. Right! When I requested the transfer to my back account, I'm informed that they are AGAIN HOLDING my money from transferring into my account. To prove to myself and Paypal, that the account was legitimate, I gave my social security number and had them verify the transfer if the small amount they made available when they notified me that the majority of my funds were on hold. The entire amount of the some item was a little over $1300 and they held that, but gave me access to about $19.00 which I transferred to be sure it was actually PayPal that had hijacked my money. I was certain initially, that I had been scammed by some foreign thief that intercepted my money. Only now, to learn that the questionable culprit is actually PayPal. Wow! What a disappointment. There is obviously money being made by someone, with my money. I certainly still do not have access...although the buyer has their very beautiful and valuable item, and PayPal has my money. I suppose I actually have been scammed. They took their fee, eBay took theirs, buyer has theirs... But me? I received four days if stress and aggravation. By the way...im a long time eBay member with perfect feedback. Scammed. There should be a warning by PayPal that the payment would be held PRIOR to accepting a sale or bid. I could easily have sold this item locally without this grief. NEVER AGAIN PAYPAL!!!!
