Paypal does not protect you or your wallet

For years I have been shopping on line with confidence using my PayPal buying "shield" Yesterday I filled a dispute with paypal requesting my money back for a dvd I had ordered through www.ecrater. /jfsales51 What I recieved was a bootleg pirated copy. Paypal "investigated and closed" my claim within 90 min of me filling it. When I called Paypal I was informed that of the thousands and thousands of sites that use the PayPal option the only one I am protected one is Ebay. Unless I never recieve the item. So according to Paypal I did recieve it but who cares that it is a homemade illegal dvd... I lose. The more research I did the more I felt like a fool using PayPal. So America please use caution when using paypal becuase you are NOT protected at all even for illegal activites and scams. I have closed my account and will now only use my charge charge so that I can have at least some recourse. Check this out paypalsucks.com it will really open your eyes beforethe holiday shopping season.

Tout à fait d accord. Aucune protection de la part de Paypal...

Un vendeur m a vendu un disque ; bonne pochette mais pas le bon disque à l intérieur. Il fallait que je paie aussi le retour de l article... non remboursé bien sûr. J ai proposé les photos comme preuves ...

AUCUNE REACTION du côté du vendeur/VOLEUR qui collectionne les plaintes.

Mais il faut savoir que PAYPAL EMARGE AUSSI SUR LES TRANSACTIONS DES VOLEURS ET DES ESCROCS ET QUE CA NE LES INTERESSE PAS DE DEFENDRE LES VICTIMES; JE PENSE QUE CE MANQUEMENT EXPOSE PAYPAL A L ACCUSATION DE PUBLICITE MENSONGERE;;;... UN JOUR CA LEUR RETOMBERA SUR LE NEZ MEME CACHE AU LUXEMBOURG....

Without going into detail, basically the same thing happened to me this week. I ordered a DRIED FLORAL fro Heart of Heaven Gifts with Paypal.

I was sent FAKE Flowers on the wreath and I filed, the seller disputed and PayPal closed the claim.

What's the use in filing if Paypal does nothing? I too will close my account and use my credit card.
