Problems with PayPal ?
« on: April 06, 2021, 02:17:07 pm »
Has anyone else been having problems with PayPal?
My problems all started back on March 28th when I tried to buy two Wilesco Gauges on Ebay. The sale didn't go
through and the note that popped up read, We're sorry but PayPal is unable to complete your transaction.
So after many messages back and forth I was informed that their security system would not let it go through
because of the seller. The seller has very good feedback and some of you may have dealt with them in the past.
After many more tries and failures and more messages they tell me it's my banks fault. Checked with them, wrong.
This has been going on now for eleven days and today I bid on an item, won, went to pay and the same thing.
Now I have two people waiting to get paid.  Oh the seller that they claimed to be protecting me from is
 a Wilesco parts seller on Ebay. Same one I got my Wilesco Virunator from.
I'm wondering if they are doing this to get me to sign up for their mobile app.
Anyone else getting this crap from PP?

I know Jan, I've dealt with him before. That's where I bought my Wilesco Virunator from, actually two of them.
They're handing me a crock of crap. It's something else.

None for me, though I haven't used PayPal outside of eBay for a few months.
If I had the storage space... And the money... I'd have a few more engines.
