    Hi,

    I've been doing some research and came across this forum. We used to sell on ebay and were ripped of by PP many times. Now I'm no longer willing to use them the usual way.

    They claim we owe them money which we don't. We've shut down one bank account to be safe and blocked them from the other. But they mean to charge the credit card used to make any purchases through them. (So far they have no credit card details, just these bank accounts.)

    There's an online purchase (software) I'd like to make, and PP is the only offered payment method. Since I really need the software for my work I can't just give it a miss. So I'm asking for some advice.
    I've already contacted the sales team about simply using my credit card. But if this isn't possible, I will need an alternative.

    The problem is that both PP and bank accounts are in my husband's name. My credit card is linked to his and has the same number. I'm afraid they'd trace him through my card and charge him though we owe them nothing.

    I've read some of the threads here, but they all seem to refer to the US. We're from the UK, with 2 bank accounts still active there, but we're temporarily in Germany. They're extremely uptight about ID here, driving licences don't even count and I have no passport just now. I have no bank account here. I'd need some sneaky method to deal with this.

    We still have an official UK address, but I can't have any mail sent there for now.

    Any advice on getting a credit/debit card or online bank account in a different name, based on these details?

    Honestly, if possible I'd also lke to get some of the stolen money back from them, from when we were selling. In a few cases, people would end up with quality goods, lie to PP and we'd lose the money. If I have such a credit card, can I shop with it, only to the extent of the loss, and then virtually vanish?

    Thanks very much.

    That is ok that you posted here and anyways I'll tell you some stuff.

    You should further contact the paypal and ebay guys to tell them about your problem. I reccomend you talk to your credit card company as well just in case you did buy some stuff and you can stop those purchases anyway so you should do that. But I don't think Paypal is going to give up. They are a pretty big company with lots of money I have to say and It's not worth it to fight them and especially in a lawsuit so I reccomend you procede cautiously. Good luck and tell me of your further things happening down the road you will need help with.

    Thanks,
    Austin

    Thanks for the quick reply. Actually I'm fairly sure they''re too greedy to proceed over a 1 digit sum. They don't have the status of a bank, and we'll leave here soon.

    Oh yes, about reasoning with any of those folk, no chance. I'll stick to being elusive from now on. But I need to know a little more please.

    Thankfully they don't have our credit card details, so that's safe too.

    But I do wonder about the other things in my original question? credit card in a diff. name in Europe ... since I have to make that purchase

    Thanks again.
