I was sent nearly $500 this week for a stove I sold on Ebay. My money is cleared in my account but I'm told I have to *claim* it. I even get an email sent to me requesting I log in and fill out some stupid upgrade to my account. WTF? Folks, I use this account 6x a year. But they insist I upgrade top a premiere account. So I spend an hour researching the Paypal site, How to claim money? Nothing, nothing at all.
So I call, get the idiot foreign speaking 21yr older name Sunshine. Give me a break? Kiddin me, Sunshine???? So she tells me, "We know there is a problem with your account, its happening to many people". ( broken English....) Ok, I say. I need to transfer my $500 to my bank account. "Oh, you cannot, it'll take 24 to 72 *business* hrs to fix the problem." So I say, " Paypal knows there is a problem with my account but doesn't inform me?" " Meanwhile you are holding my money and won't release it to me?" And furthermore, I don't get an email informing me?" Service desk respond, "Sorry sir ( broken English ), I'm very sorry, I'll elevate your request to the top of the list".
It's 32hrs later, maybe 8 business hrs and I can't request my withdrawal. WTF!!! And still no email from Paypal.
