    Not sure if anyone has posted this before but here it is for those who have not seen it.

    Since the start of 2012 PayPal has been in breach of the new EU legislation which dictates funds must be transferred within 24 hours to bank accounts.

    PayPal has started to abide by the law (because they were basically told to do so by EU) and now UK PayPal account holders will get their funds transferred to their bank account immediately!

    Also the EU has told PayPal that whoever has used the £5 next day transfer will need to be reimbursed.

    If you fall into the category of account holders that have used the £5 next day transfer, you should call PayPal up and ask to be placed on the reimbursement list, if they act dumb, ask for their superior. They have to reimburse you, whether it be £5, £50, £500, etc.

    This is only for the UK.

    Good luck getting your money back!

    P.S. If you want to thank me you can teach me SEO haha...

    PayPals latest little scam is to hold the transfer for 24 hours 'to review it'.

    Strange that my last 2 withdrawals had to reviewed for 24 hours. The first one maybe, but the second? And also curious, they both took exactly 24 hours and 13 minutes to be reviewed.

    I just use the debit card for the US. Instant cash at atm's up to your daily. I only run smaller stuff through paypal anyway as an option for people versus my merchant accounts.

    Will be giving them a ring in the morning. There's some serious £5's to claw back for me.

    Anyway of sending them an email or a letter ? Knowing those scumbags they will keep you on a premium rate phone line for 8 hours. They don't owe me much but it would give me satisfaction to get a refund..anyone gets any joy please update the thread.

    Hi,

    If you don't want to pay the premium rate phone line, call using Skype to their toll free US number and ask them to transfer you to the UK. That's what I always do so I don't need to pay those scumbags haha.

    Of course they 'review' your funds.
    That's easy money in their pockets from the free interest off YOUR $$.
    Bastads!!!

    Too bad is not the same in US, I am tired of waiting not 3, but sometimes 4 or 5 days till I am able to use my own money.
