PayPal Complaint - PayPal... a merchants' broker
SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA -- Without my authorization Wealthy Affiliates University (WA) used my PayPal account for a second year of a non-recurring subscription for $359.88 (subject of another complaint). WA notified me of this after they had been paid by PayPal. I filed an email dispute with PayPal, which was denied. I called them and was told that since they had paid WA, they would not do anything to help me. PayPal is broker for their merchants’ financial interests, with no protection for the consumer. While I was on telephone hold, I heard all sorts of dialogue about how much protection PayPal was to the customers. PayPal actually provides no protection against unauthorized use of one’s credit. In my opinion, it is just as safe, perhaps safer, to use your credit card online. I have filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and my credit card.
