Saying my informaiton is linked to another account... waiting on hold going on 30 min.
After an hour and 20 minutes on hold I finally got through. Someone in 2004 had opened an account using my SS number. Why I never got flagged before I don't know.Craig...are you certain that the email is coming from Paypal. It may look like it but it may be a scam that's designed to get financial information from you. I had been getting those for a while.
Try going here:
and then go to the right side of the page under "Take action"
They'll confirm whether or not it's a legitimate email.
Worst part is I have several packages to ship today but without access I can't ship them as I don't get my paycheck till Monday. Plus its more expensive to boot to pay at the PO.So, it looks like forced savings for you for about three days, then. I hope you don't miss being able to buy some nice exotic plant that you've been looking for that's up for sale in the next three days.
To which my computer replies...
They're seizing your money?Here is how it shows in my History:
Aug. 29, 2009 Temporary Hold To Unauthorized Placed Details -$140.00 USD
They already did.... I haven't finalized the dispute as I'm awaiting response fomr the buyer to verify he placed the order before I make a decision on how to handle this.They're seizing your money?
Time to find an alternative...
Its the premier account. This is turning into a nightmare.I think there is also like escrow or something but thats like more online checking or something.
Maybe its just karma for the board, they did a great job for one member, now its time to mess another member over.
On a side note, what type of account do you have? Is it a prime one or a normal personal one?
definitely not user error. I started using paypal back when it was fairly new and I was a huge computer nut.I have never had a problem with pp in the 5 years I have been using it. Whenever there is a problem it is usually them trying to figure out some inconsistency with your account or user error.
