I purchased a 3V paypal gift card as a present for a family member - all I can say is 3V = UTTER RIP OFF, AVOID AT ALL COSTS
a) probably the worst website I have ever used for help
b) no direct contact number for 3V just endless text pages with soloutions that don't work
c) transfer money to paypal - does not work, 'refused by bank' ie 3V message
d) transfer to bank account - possible but they charge you £3.50
So as it stands we are £50 out of pocket with no ability to access the funds which are of course showing up only on the 3V account but there is nothing you can do with it from there.
I will be issuing a formal complaint to the FSA and trading standards.
