     Paypal Insanity
    2019

FACT

Explanation

1. PAYPAL MUST inform users of the TRUTH.

If you do not have a "smart-phone", with which you can send and receive text messsages, you ARE SCREWED.
But Paypal is TOO STUPID to tell you that.

Instead, they force you to jump through hoops, and screw up the process entirely.
SCREWED

2. Years with Paypal, and then they screwed me.

I have used Paypal successfully for years. But then they decided to "enhance my security", by DEMANDING that I give them a "smart phone" number.

3. Where I live, there is NO CELL SERVICE.

I have explained this to them 4 or 5 times. EVERY TIME, they agree that I should NOT give them a number which cannot be reached.
THEY AGREED, and said "Don't worry about it."

4. How They Screwed Me

A. For MONTHS, I could not get a monthly transaction report. SCREWED

B. I tried to buy a $30 item on eBay, and they refused to let me, when I had OVER $600 in my Paypal account. SCREWED

C. Instead, they took money out of my BANK ACCOUNT, which I NEVER INTENDED.

THE ONLY reason I had this extra "buffer" bank account, was to receive payments from a foreign vendor (Media.net).
SCREWED

Thankfully, I was able to -
     D. Transfer my Paypal balance to my bank account
     E. Unlink my bank account from Paypal, and
     F. Close my Paypal account.

I WILL NEVER SCREW AROUND WITH THESE PEOPLE EVER AGAIN. THEY ARE INCOMPETANT BUNGLERS, who will screw you, because they Have NO CLUE.

It is back to Amazon for me, where my credit card will protect me from such nonsense. NO MORE PAYPAL. The only thing they can be trusted for, is to screw things up!
