Default PayPal Not Good

It was on the news this afternoon about Solicitor phone calls and how the FCC is looking at letting phone providers blocking them for us.
Senator Al Franken is trying to block Paypal robocalls. Other words starting next month if you use PayPal you give them the right to give your phone number to a solicitor. There talking about Minnesota now but you could be next.

It is called the National No Call List. Not perfect but it works.
As for Pay Pal, I asked to have my account closed several years ago when they decided they needed my bank account numbers and permission to make transactions on them. They said they would nuke my account without all that. Told them to go hose themselves.
They lied the account is still there. Contact them and tell them to leave you off the list, preferably in writing and you have some recourse.

That's odd ... they've never asked for my banking info. They do have my CC on file but that's standard. Perhaps it was a phishing attempt by a hacker?

CC on file is fine. My account still will not open for CC though they demand account #'s. They might have backed off of the practice, or your being in Canada might be the difference. Yes, I figured the same and called them and it was verified.
Don't know.

I had a debit card listed with paypal for years. Then they wanted to 'verify' my account and wanted a checking number.

I ignored it for years,,,until I sold something on ebay and in order to transfer the money to my checking they needed it.

So I provided it, and that was about 5 years back. In that time I have had my debit card hacked twice, one time getting me for $3,700 before the bank caught on but not a single hack through paypal.

That said, I am good. Its all insured anyway.

Interesting. I use PayPal for all my internet purchases (truth be told it's prolly only 12 per year)- they have my CC details only. For us Ozzies we get stuff shipped globally- no choice. Only once have I not had something turn up, and I was charged for it so I reversed the transaction with PayPal which was easy to do and a great result.

I have not had any issues ever with PayPal- very happy with it.

I've been using PayPal for well over a decade with no issues. Have two bank accounts and one credit card on it. Probably do 75 to 100 transactions a year with them. I'd say 95% of my internet purchases are PayPal transactions. You can even pay with them in stores (Home Depot for example).

Love PayPal! I don't know if I've ever even heard someone have a bad transaction with them, that they didn't fix quickly and easily.
