I  PURCHASED AN ITEM FROM OVER SEAS AND IT NEVER CAME THEN THE SELLER WAS REMOVED FROM EBAY. I WAS FRUSTRATED AS ALL I HAD WAS AN EMAIL ADDRESS.  I SENT NUMEROUS EMAILS BUT TO NO AVAIL! SO WE TOOK UP THE ISSUE WITH PAYPAL.

THEY HAVE JUST CONCLUDED THEIR DESCISION AND WE HAVE BEEN REFUNDED............HERE'S THE FUNNY BIT WE COULD ONLY BE REFUNDED SOME OF THE MONEY AS THE SELLER HAS TO REFUND THE REST OFF THEIR OWN BACKS!!!!...........................WELL  WHY ARE THEY GOING TO DO THAT?

ALSO WHY DO WE PAY FEES IF WE CANT BE HELPED (I AM ALSO A VERIFIED PAYPAL USER)? JUST SOMETIMES I WONDER WHY WE DO IT!! I KNOW ITS ONLY A SELECT FEW TIMES WE GET SKANKED/MISLEAD BUT WHEN IT DOES IT IS FRUSTRATING!

ALSO A FEW WEEKS AGO I SOLD A MOBILE PHONE ON EBAY THE BUYER HAD ZERO FEEDBACK BUT PAID INSTANTLY USING A VERIFIED PAYPAL ACCOUNT. WE SENT THE PHONE OFF ROYAL MAIL SPECIAL DELIVERY .

24 HOURS LATER WE RECEIVED AN EMAIL FROM PAYPAL TO SAY THE MONEY WAS TO BE TAKEN FROM OUR ACCOUNT AS IT COULD BE FRAUDULANT. IT WAS ALREADY REMOVED FROM THE ACCOUNT. WE RANG ROYALMAIL BUT THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO AS IT WAS OUT WITH THE POSTIE!!!

I THEN GOT IN TOUCH WITH PAYPAL AND THEY SAID ITS IN A SEPERATE ACCOUNT AS THE FUNDS MAY HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE RIGHTFUL OWNER.

THE CASE HAS BEEN CONCLUDED ON THEIR BEHALF AS THEY HAD TO GIVE FUNDS TO THE RIGHTFUL OWNER, BUT WE HAD ALREADY SENT THE ITEM. WHILE THIS WAS GOING ON THIS EBAYER CHANGED FEEDBACK TO PRIVATE SO NO ONE COULD SEE AND SKANKED SOMEMORE EBAYERS. AS PAYPAL WAS THEN AWARE OF HIM FROM ME THEY WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO REMOVE THE FUNDS INSTANTLY.

I CONTACTED PAYPAL AND APARENTLY I AM NOT COVERED TO CLAIM ANY FUNDS?? WHATS THAT ABOUT THEN AS HE NOW HAS THE PHONE AND HAS JUST BEEN REMOVED FROM EBAY! HE HAS LOST NOTHING. THE PHONE WAS MY BROTHER S AND WE PAID HIM AS THE FUNDS WERE IN PAYPAL ACCOUNT. SO WE GAVE HIM THE MONEY IT SOLD FOR AND WE SENT THE PHONE ONLY TO HAVE NO FUNDS AND NO CHANCE OF A REFUND FOR EVEN SOME OF THE MONEY IN QUESTION!!!!

DISPITE ALL THIS I WOULD STILL SAY TO USE PAYPAL AS YOU DO GET AN INVOICE AND SOME PEACE OF MIND THAT ITS A LITTLE SAFER THEN OTHER PAYMENT METHODS. ALL I WOULD SAY IS MAYBE GIVE IT A FEWW HOURS AFTER PAYMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE FROM PEOPLE WITH FEEDBACK OF 5 OR LESS OR ACCOUNT CHANGE IN LESS THEN 30 DAYS AS THESE ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE FRAUDULANT BUYERS/SELLERS.

I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY THAT I DONT WISH TO OFFEND ANY LEGITIMATE SELLERS/BUYERS WITH FEEDBACK OF 5 OR LESS BUT THIS IS ON THE RISE AND BASED ON MY EXPERIENCES IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS. I UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE ALL TO START SOMEWHERE AND THATS WHY ON MY LISTINGS I  ASK THAT THE BUYER IF FEEDBACK 5 OR LESS TO CONTACT BEFORE BIDDING AS GENUINE ONES TEND TO RESPECT THIS AND GET IN CONTACT.

THANKS AND I HOPE YOU FOUND THIS USEFUL.
