I am posting here pretty much out of desperation because it seems that PayPal customer service is still out of the picture.
Maybe a couple months ago I started receiving random emails from PayPal. The emails are legit, and come from PayPal. They are not scam emails. It started with a constant stream of emails claiming I had free 5 dollars to claim. If I clicked the link to claim the 5 dollars I get a message that says I am ineligible or sometimes just a "page not found". A few weeks ago I began getting more emails in addition to the 5 dollar one. The new ones seem to be introductory emails giving me instructions on how to setup certain aspects of my account. I've had this account forever, why am I getting these all of a sudden. I have all the general email notifications turned off, and for the past 10 years it has not been a problem. Now it is. I checked my settings and the notifications are still turned off, so nothing I can do there. I've never had to interact with PayPal customer support before, and assumed they would be top notch. I was shocked to find otherwise. The customer service I have experienced has been atrocious. I won't even go into the details. But in a nutshell, they cannot help.
The only things I get emails for (or used to) is when I did a transaction. Whenever I do a PayPal transaction I get an email. That is good. That is what I want. That is ONLY what I want. I want all other emails to stop!!
At this point I'm assuming I will have to block all emails coming from PayPal in order to stop these additional unwanted emails. If that ends up being the solution I will be disappointed.
Anybody else having this going on? Got any ideas on how to stop it?
I've had a similar problem for a while now. I get a mail from Paypal about a money-savings opportunity, in this case from one of their partners for $10 off. There is no "unsubscribe" at the mail's bottom, only links to my notifications settings which, when I check them again, are all blank (e.g., I haven't asked to for any Marketing notifications at all). This is unacceptable and am wondering what recourses I have. Customer support experience doesn't sound promising.
