PayPal, Merriem Wombacher, American Express, Illegal Chargebacks, Fraud PayPal dispute process San Jose California
*Author of original report: UPDATE
*Consumer Comment: Always Empty Your Balance
The ongoing dispute lasted a total of 2 months and 3 weeks before I received an email from PayPal that AM EX would not release my money. They had sided with the buyer.
I would like to know why I (the one whom the money was recovered) was not part of the dispute process. PayPal said that this is their policy, that when they agreed to take credit cards, PayPal would abide by their ruling, I did not make that agreement and it was not PayPal's money that was taken it was mine. I am frustrated because I have no idea what went on in the dispute process, I do not even know why I lost since I won the PayPal dispute. I have been provided with no details, I only know that the thief who filed the charge back, Merriem Wombacher aka (SweetSue98) received the goods, the money, I even paid for the shipping. I filed a police report in my community, I am still considering whether it is worth the cost to take her to small claims court. The officer that spoke to her called me and told me that I defamed her. No defamation here! What I stated was the truth. If her reputation is ruined, she did it to herself.
I would warn anyone who sells on line, and uses PayPal to be very careful. This online theft is legal. You have very little in the way of options available to you. Every time you accept a payment from a buyer you run the risk of a chargeback.
