    Still haven't resolved my issue, @AskPayPal. Someone hacked my account + added their credit card. My account is locked b/c I can't verify this credit card. The only way I can remove it is by unlocking my account (by verifying this unknown credit card) - I NEED TO SPEAK TO A HUMAN

    Ehm.. i kinda have a problem with paying the Albums right now. If anyone has €100 spare and could send it to me on PayPal, that would be great. I would send it right back. It just won't take money off of my bank account.

    @ASOS_HeretoHelp went to checkout and opted to pay through paypal, however when I submit it says 'sorry, there was a problem authorising your payment. Please check your details and try again'. Tried over 10 times, will I be charged? What's the issue?

    @CantabKitty I loathe PayPal - mainly because with eBay, they always come down on the side of the buyer, and they withhold money from the sellers for really spurious reasons. But no I paid by debit card I think, might have been credit

    Hi @AskPayPal, i just bought via PayPal for 137€ of goods for something I need ASAP. It says that the payment is differed to september which is the problem... What are my options to get it done quickly ? (or just have my money back to pay with another support)

    If you want to send me money, do not ask for my credit card login or bank information. That's how information get stolen. You can send it through PayPal or any way that doesnt give you a direct line to my banking info. #sugarbaby #SugarDaddy #sugardaddywanted #sugardaddytwitter

    If you're using @coinbase and have your credit card there, please check your account and let me know if you notice some payment you didn't issue (see my last tweet). I had my credit card on paypal, amazon and coinbase. All with 2FA so this is really weird.

    @PayPal why do you continue to let fraudsters from China do business through your system? I've just be sent broken and wrong goods. While you've agreed to resolve the payment, you can't/won't address the fact that sending it back costs more than the item cost. Why would I?

    @AskPayPal No need for DM. My point is that I sold an item on the 8th of Aug on @ebay and I'm still waiting for the money to appear 'available' on my bank account though @paypal. The process between you two is super slow and glitchy.

    @_lost_marimo_ Pretty much might be worth grabbing a notepad and writing down a business plan doesn't have to be perfect all you need is paypal or a bank or both, a way to sell your art either personally where they send you money via paypal and then you ship your art to them via courier

    If @eBay doesn't fix this and have this money back in my @PayPal account, that will be the end of me selling anything worthwhile on their site, and you can damn better believe I'll be getting this story as much publicity as I can. And that's a LOT.
