    I have got a negative paypal balance of £600, buyer did a charge back on his credit card, i have already taken the money out of my bank and i plan to resolve the matter my self because i have the buyers addressee and i will be paying him a visit, but in the mean time i want to know what will happen with paypal if i can't resolve the matter my self. i got the negative balance today. but what happens if i don't pay it? i won't be able to pay it back for around 3-4 months but intend to pay it if i have to, is this long enough before they send out balifs etc? also ive recently moved house and my paypal details are all set at my old addressee infact my bank card is still registered at my old addressee can they still get to me? i have used ebay since and had stuff shipped to my new addressee thoughand it comes up on pay pal as confirmed shipping addressee. but if my registration details and bank card is not registered at my new adreese can they legally send balifs or anything to my addressee if ive only had stuff shipped here? ive had stuff shipped to friends addressees aswel in the past.

    from business deals I have done in and within the UK sir or mam they can if they have any proof that you are the person attached to that account and further more paypal has complete access to ebay info and vise versa so I recommend putting in a complaint against this person then take care of the balance and pay that person a visit as soon as you can to deal with the issue how you deal with it id rather not know but they can sir within your local law if allowed PS do you know of a alternative to paypal for selling on ebay that I could have money transferred to me like on a debt card without using a local bank or credit card I have no SS# from the US I left home at a young age and cant legally find it out till I am 21 and request a change because of theft of my card by my parents

    They will get their debt collection agency to call you 10 times a day and then if you still don't pay up, they will add charges on top and do the legal stuff.

    It's only $600 bucks, what if you owe $1m where would you run to. My advice is to face the wrath if you can't fix the problem. Every business has there share of setbacks you might want to see this as one of yours.

    They cant send a balief to your address until they have taken you to court. A balief works on behalf of the court after a judgement is made against you. They can however get debt collectors to call you, send letters and knock on your door to find out when and if you are going to pay. If you dont pay or cant reach an agreement to pay then they might take you to court and if you didn't pay the court the court then sends a balief. Paypal and Ebay will have no problems finding out where you are. Debt collectors will try every address they can find out about you. What did you sell for £600 that got a chargeback. Thats a lot if you didnt have the goods returned to you.
