Like many others, I have been the victim of Paypal. I sold an item for £250 and sent it with proof of postage etc to an address in London. They say it never arrived and must have got lost in the post - this was the dashboard from a Land Rover. I left good feed back for the purchaser as he paid on the nail for the goods, but then a few days later, the funds are removed from my account. I understood the contract was between me and the purchaser, so for the funds to be removed from my account, would appear to me, to be an act of corporate theft.
Paypal charge huge commission and appear to favor the scammer and not to protect the seller. I am frustrated at the ongoing policy they operate under and wish someone would take them to task over what, in my opinion, appears to be a legal laundry
