And of course I was such a pro paypal supporter, that any time someone said paypal had "screwed" them. I couldn't imagine them being completely honest and just assumed they were full of **** and had something stupid or illegal. After all, I did have a business account with them for 5 years and passed thousands of dollars with them monthly, sometimes even weekly.
So when some lucky buyer bought something from me on eBay for 99 cents and my account ended up frozen, because their account (not mine) was fraudulent. I was a little in disbelief, but figured this would be an easy matter to resolve. I never imagined they would keep all my money and treat me as though I wasn't a person or someone who had not a single right in the world.
So what really ended up happening was that I ended up having to sue paypal and it took years to get my money, which they kept frozen and kept collecting interest on.
So when I tell someone NOT to send me anything through paypal and I STRESS that I can not accept anything or send anything through paypal... Why is that so hard to understand?
I recently was hired to help someone to install something on their site. We agreed 1/2 now and 1/2 later. I explained before to this person that IF I agreed to do this, we would need to use Google Checkout and I explained to this person that I DO NOT accept paypal. They agreed and I sent them an invoice though Google Checkout.....
What did they do?
They used the e-mail from my invoice, from Google Checkout, and sent me payment via paypal. Of course I told them I wouldn't be able to do the job, as I never got payment (send it to my e-mail and it ends up in paypal's "black whole"). He got pissed and I guess tried to cancel his payment. Now he is mad that paypal has frozen his account, claiming fraud. And some how thinks this is my fault.
Why don't people listen?
