    So I submitted three bugs awhile ago and so far I got paid for one of them which is $750, and the others are both authentication bypasses.


    So for the 2nd one, (auth bypass) I get this back:
    "Thank you for participating in the PayPal Bug Bounty Program. We regret to inform you that your bug submission was not eligible for a bounty. We have determined that your bug submission is invalid for the following reason:


    Your submission relies on social engineering which is out of scope for PayPal's Bug Bounty Program.


    Title: Authentication Bypass"




    They called it Social Engineering because I listed it as a USE of what you could do with it. Now they're trying to dodge it calling it invalid and that they don't support it.

    Bro, just don't give a damn about it, one thing is undeniable is you have the talent, one day or another you'll get a really good bounty !
    Im pretty sure that you are entitled to a brilliant career in security and pentesting.

    And for your post, yeah damn that Paypal

    This is a typical strategy of eBay and PayPal to use a made up technicality to rip you on hard earned money. Look and use your
    talent elsewhere and forget these guys.
