    So, I recieved an e-mail today saying that they reversed a payment!

    I sent a product to the guy, and he took it for free!!!! :mad:

    I also switched to a premier account and the fees are unbelieveable, fuckers...

    Is there any way around this? I want to get my payment back. This fuckin guy got the product for free...I didn't know that paypal could reverse the payment, this is fuckin bullshit!

    Good luck getting your payment back, but if you do enough volume with paypal they will reduce your fees...

    You sold a product to someone and they claimed unauthorized use or some shit?

    Was it a digital product?

    PayPal has invested a lot of stake in their robots and artificial intelligence, however they aren't getting the message that some situations require human intervention (and then the problem arrives where their employees are incoherent monkeys sometimes). It's a loose-loose. PayPal will mess with the wrong people some day, and it's going to go down. They really do everything in the book to prevent actually having to do their job, it's called being lazy. The only company that has successfully automated half of its work force is Google. Blessed be to ePassporte, Amazon, and Google - as opposed to PayPal, eBay, and *insert failed search engine here*.

    Have you tried calling them? Pray beforehand that you're blessed with an employee of coherence.

    Honestly, usually when they make a decision it is FINAL.

    Your best hope is to gather all information that you can..shipping details, proof of delivery, email correspondence, etc...

    When you get all that together call them and be VERY CALM. If you start demanding shit and being abrasive they are not going to work with you just out of spite.

    I e-mailed them, and I also e-mailed the dumb SOB that stole my money. Cause If he doesn't give it back I will spend an entire month following his every move and screwing everything he has!

    How much money are you talking about?

    Usually with paypal and physical products you have some kind of seller protection...

    I would imagine that at some point, there will be some sort of class action suite against them. It's really only a matter of time.

    Ok, a lot of people are bitching about PayPal lately so I'm going to copy a section from another forum that deals with the trading of WoW Accounts. This is a nice handy little mini guide to selling through PayPal

    Put the guy's phonenumber, address, name etc. on the website that has "chargeback" scammers listed. In the future you can look up which asshole not to sell to.

    And I too hope paypal will go down..but it just won't. Paypal is located in Switzerland as far as I recall. Purposely put there to avoid tax and other sensitive information. I hope eBay goes down..Paypal will see its first drop in transactions then.
