    I don't have a paypal account, I always just send money to invoices or "Send Money" using my debit/credit card. So I sent 50% deposit to a guy/girl on this forum and he replied with this:

    Has anyone had this problem before? Just wondering if it's actually possible or if I got ripped off before I end up calling paypal tomorrow? The money was not deposited back into my account or an email from paypal about something happening to the transaction.

    check your statement. if it didnt get refunded to you or doesnt show it as being held somewhere than it did go into the recipients account.

    If you don't have an account just call paypal and reference the transaction id and ask the status of it stating that there is a discrepancy where the recipient says the funds were not released to them and you still have had funds drawn from your payment method.

    Like everyone above said, make sure you verify this with PayPal themselves. There have been cases with some very... unsavory individuals before.

    It may take 5 days or so (sometimes more) for it to show back up on your card even if the other party doesn't have it... unfortunately you just can't be sure without talking to PayPal.

    Well this guy wasn't lying. I checked my email and its pending "case renewal" lols..

    – Case Reversal Details

    PayPal is constantly monitoring site activity and reviewing transactions.

    This payment has been selected for review and we have opened an investigation.

    I've had my account frozen before after receiving money that is more than usual. They locked me out of every cent I had there and made me send tons of information to prove my identity. It took almost two weeks, have fun...

    That sucks. Do you mind if I ask if you have a bank account attached to your PayPal account? I ask because all the people who have had complaints before tend to be people who don't want to attach bank accounts.
