re: #1 Sea Mexican!

Yes. The entire reason I’m posting this is because I never knew this could happen. So in my page I try to give you something. A link to a legitimate site that will take your statement from either phone or email, and post it. That will get noticed, mine was. And the phone numbers at the end. They do not exist on any “official” PP page.
I’m just out a $35 stop payment and a theft of a $116 payment. Lucky me. I found it all to be quite incredible.

Oh, that really sucks! And the fact that the person the money was sent to refused to give it back? I hate people. I really do. Never, ever would I consider for a moment keeping money that was accidentally sent to me.

Thank you for your story and the information provided. I frequently get paid through PayPal and sometimes send money through PayPal, so it’s good to know what to watch for, and I will never, ever keep any money in the PP account. As soon as I get it, I’ll be moving it right out again.

So sorry this happened to you. :-(

re: #3 Sionainn, the Nasty Devilbitch

Those phone numbers I posted you will never find on any PayPal owned site. Read the two responses from their “support”. Honesty has nothing to do with it. I made a mistake and will pay. I wasn’t going to give them a penny, they took my 116. Five weeks to get this sorted out and I’m still out money. I’m not happy, but if I wish to play in certain areas I have to use them. Really pissed me off. and the fact the only way I got any “resolution” was going outside PP? Set up to frustrate on purpose. Yes, and the guy who got the money, if they wanted to, they could have gotten it. He wasn’t meant to get it. By that standard, I overpay a company, I eat it. Business Consumer Alliance is legit, and got me through.

PayPal could have gotten the money back from that other person and they didn’t?!? Wow!

re: #5 Sionainn, the Nasty Devilbitch

If you sent money to the wrong banking account, would the bank say “Tough shit. You made a mistake and will pay.”?
I have no explanation for the entire action of PayPal except “by design and horribly flawed”. I can’t think of another public “service” with such shoddy security. Would they, could they? Should they? They ran me in a circle. No further phone numbers were offered. And I also submitted my complaint via email and got back the response that nothing illegal happened. I’m not the only one this happened to. In their “support” area there are plenty of happy stories where someone did as I did, but got the money back because…bullshit.
The ONLY reason I posted this was to tell you what happened to me and to shine some light on a company whose system is touted as protecting you, may not protect you from a mistake. Never again will a penny sit in my PP account.
I still find it hard to fathom this. “How can they do this?” was a frequent response to me. They did it.

One last thing here. The only reason this was posted was to draw attention to a gaping hole in Paypal’s secure and safe system. If you have a PP account and wish to play “What if that was me” go forth and be stonewalled. No answer is available on site for what I did. No tier 1 support actually exists within PP that, me, with a modicum of problem solving savay could find. I had to go outside of PP. I see a possible source of income via people walking away.
Have a PP account? Do this. Pretend what happened to me happened to you. Find a link. Find more than ONE phone number. Find a link to “I sent money to the wrong email account” that exists to actually help you. Nope.
I’m so sick of this shit.
One last piece of advice. It never ends. The minute you stop fighting is the minute you get run the fuck over.
