Complaint Review: PayPal
PayPal Delay and refusal to return funds Internet
*Consumer Comment: Not really
PayPal does not disclose on its site that if money is sent and then canceled before being claimed that it will take weeks to get the money back. I found this out the hard way when I sent money to an email address with a typo in it canceled it and have waiting to get it returned. In the interim I had to make the payment over again with other funds. I want my money back, PayPal has no right to keep it and if it not returned this week, I will file a small claims action against it
The facts are:
On Oct 5 I had to send $1800 to PlasticDesigns. I had its US bank account and rounting number but Idid not want to drive 20 miles to go to US Bank for a wire transfer as US Bank only does wires transfers in person, I used PayPal instead after reading its money transfer policies, I sent the money to PlaticDesigns@comcast,com. The email address was wrong it is Plastic Designs@comcast,net. I canceled the transaction as it could not be delivered and on Oct 6. The $1800 has not been delivered back to me in violation of PayPal's online statements that canceled payments would be returned. I then had to raise and pay a second time this time using the correct address comcast.net and it went through immediately.
I sent two emails to PayPal to find out why my money has not been returned. I received an automated reply which told me how to cancel a transaction which I already ready had done but nothing about when I would get my money back
I called Paypal 4 days after the cancellation and got an automatic program which had no option for asking about canceled payments. After 15 minutes oif useless information I tricked the system into sending me to a human.
I gave him this information above and was told that the order had been canceled but PayPal needs weeks more time to return the money because it must first get ti from the bank. I told him that the funds were taken from may account on the 5th so it has the funds now. No response other than to say I had to wait
.If PayPal does not have my funds where are they? This is a ridiculous procedure. I would never have used PayPal to send the money if I had known it would take weeks if ever to get it back if it was canceled and the payment not made
