So for that, paypal has made into this catagory, if you have any paypal horror stories feel free to share them...


I've been lucky so far dave and don't think i've been ripped off once but some of the stories i have heard i'm sure my good fortune won't last forever. i do have a dispute ongoing at the moment and i don't know if i'll be ripped off or not but i'll just have to wait and see.

Yep. Through the form of a chargeback, it can be taken back without your consent and then you are charged an additional fee by paypal for them trying to dispute the chargeback for you.

It's ludicrous. You always lose aswell.

im the same.. 650 smooth paypal transactions.. but i know there is a lot of bad press.. i get scard thinking about what paypal could do.. i think the number one thing is.. DONT KEEP MORE THAN £50 in your paypal account.. that way if they decide to suspend your account for no reason you will not have to much money in there to worrie about.


have a read of this..
