So I have been doing affiliate marketing for a while. I wasnt doing very well so quit in October. But I had $537.30 as a balance owed to me by the marketing network from my leads. I kept emailing my network for my payout, they kept telling me they'd do it that week and never did. Finally 2 months later I got my payout from them last week, they sent it to me via paypal. But then the next week I got an email from paypal saying "Payment Reversed". The network filed a false dispute that it was an "unauthorized transaction" and they got their money back immediately. Because it's considered a "Service" on paypal and not a "good", they can pull their money back out of people's fricken paypal accounts!! I contacted paypal and they are refusing to do anything saying they cant help per policy. So I now lost $537.30. I dont care if paypal wants to reimburse these guys, but sure hell dont take it from me, Paypal should be taking the loss or let me respond to the dispute. So I dont know what to do now, Im out $537 (I spent much more than that in advertising just to get that from leads). I know a lot of people have spoof or fake paypal accounts out there, Ive never done it or know what I could do. But anyone have ideas? Perhaps I could buy $537 worth of stuff with a fake paypal account, like as a debt/credit and ever actually pay for it? I dont know, I want to find some way to make up my loss for this. Im pissed that PayPal does this, never knew about such a thing, will never accept money as a " "service" again.
