Paypal

Postby Sarnian » Wed Dec 05, 2012 23:22 pm

Has anyone had problems with PayPal , I have had a email from them saying they have limited my account and will be closing it down as they see me as a high risk, I really don't know why there doing this as I have never had any problems with my account no disputes or anything wrong with the account. I have emailed them a number of times and just had the same reply and they won't give me a explanation and there decision is final.

It appears your not the only one, many unhappy people over the past year.

That email is usually a phishing one and it doesn't direct you to paypal but a site that looks like it (hover over the link and read the address shown at the bottom of your browser window) please say you didn't click the link! If you did get your ars* in there now and change your PW!

Did the email address you BY NAME? If it didn't another dead giveaway.

So where did you get their email address from, or did you reply to the phishing one that still wants you to use their link?

I clicked on there contact them tab on my account. I gave them a call yesterday (that's a whole other story and experience) once I finally spoke to someone that was not a electronic voice I was told there was nothing they could do to not deleting my account and they could not give me a reason as to why. The advice they did give me was to open up a new account and they would on block my bank details and card so I could re-register them and this is what I have done and now back up and running on paypal, it only took 5 hours from start to finnish :evil:
