    Angry paypal you pack of idiots !!!!!!

    Apologies not really a fs/wtb but

    Went through selling some stuff on on here.

    Everything went through perfectly got the cash in my paypay .. wrapped up the goods and posted it.

    Went to look in my account to make sure i had enough cash to buy something else and my account was empty

    Called paypal and apparently it was because the buyer was "high risk" so they reveresed it without telling me ..

    Wtf paypal .. it was already in my account u idiots

    anyone else had this?

    *crosses fingers this all works out*

    This is def not directed at the buyer as he has done nothing wrong purely a paypal rant.

    Sorry to hear that OD
    Seriously I think all people buying vaping gear would be considered as high risk

    was any sent via gift? if that was the case, paypal can flag the account due to too many gifts coming in at one go.

    Nope .. was sent as buy/sell goods

    I also had a problem buying something i sent a payment then the buyer told me the quote was in us $$ so i got him to decline payment and tried to pay them again.

    No go ... apparently adding $20 to a $400 order tripped there internal fraud system.

    Idiots ... we need a better solution

    P.s i work in the security department of a big 4 bank .. and paypals fraud rules are f&=king rooted.

    Hey mate, is you paypal linked directly to your bank account or credit card? Not sure why they would reverse a paid transaction unless the sender requested it or did something strange. I have made many an over $400 purchase with paypal, no issues.... Normally they only reverse transaction if they suspected money laundering, fraud or if there was a complaint from the buyer cos the seller did not deliver.

    p.s I too am in the infosec industry and have worked at big4 banks. Good to see I'm not the only vaper in our industry and we might bump into each other at an AISA meet or beerscam sometime...
