AUSTIN, TEXAS -- This happened on 2 separate incidents at the same time period to both my husband and I:
(1) Tried to pay garbage bill with Paypal (PP), somehow linked it to BillMeLater (BML); said payment due on a certain date. Tried to link bank account/s to BML and it wouldn't accept routing and account #. Kept trying -how many banks accounts does a person have? The bill wasn't due yet, but BML said payment past due and tacked on Late fees ($25 +); in addition to changing the due date; over $100 fees.
(2) Tried to pay a software/computer service to 'unlock' computer (which happens to be another scam), but only let me pay through PP which turned into BML; same story as the first issue; turned into another $100 in late fees (again, starting with the $25).
I believe it's purposely confusing to trick you into using the BML service, then the due dates change without notifying you, purposely don't allow you to add your bank account if it's used in your Paypal account, but honestly how many bank accounts does an average person have? Then once it's considered 'late' your bank account is miraculously approved to be linked to your BML account.
Sounds like this has happened to many consumers from reading the reviews. There should be a major penalty for them to pay. When it was just PP, I was happy with their services; Apparently they became greedy! Now I want nothing to do with either!
Deceptive Business Practices
IRVING, TEXAS -- It's a shame PayPal has to resort to deceptive business practices to profit. It is virtually impossible, no matter how many boxes you check, to avoid an occasional purchase being charged to Bill Me Later, ... read full review
I have tried numerous times to sign in to Pay Pal to pay for this item but cannot get through their sign in procedures. I am not recognized and now Ebay is threatening to open an unpaid item in my account. I don't need the hassle and no longer need the item. 1 Replies - Latest reply on 07/18/2011Add reply
PayPal charges refund fees for cancelled transactions. Accordingly, if someone sends money to you by mistake or for a sold-out item, you will be obliged to send full (not partial refunds) and still be charged the refund fees (and the full transaction fees if the buyer is quick in filing dispute)

Moreover, even if your agreement/listing specifies that any cancellation/transaction fees are non-refundable, PayPal does not recognize your agreement or respect your terms and conditions!
I was a target for such misuse. This could be used by many to harm someone's business.
