Complaint / review text:
PayPal is truly a racket.instead of rewarding my use of PayPal for online purchases, I was told I had t open a PayPal credit card account, or give them my banking information to continue to use their services.
I already had PayPal tied to my website, and I love Ebay shopping. So I was cornered. I did open the credit card account. Later, as I was closing the account due to the worst customer service, and dishonest business practices…I learned that I did not in fact have to open the account! PayPal is sneaky.
They make is easy to open an account, get you dependent on them, then start extorting more from you. It's old school pimping! Maybe their business practices are based on that old book, "How to Be Pimp." I closed not only the CC account, but my entire PayPal account, and told them good-bye for good (that's not exactly what I said). I had trouble figuring out how to use Ebay with PayPal (same company) but it's possible. Once again, they make it tough, and are far from transparent.
PayPal Extras Mastercard wouldn't send a bill to me, no matter how many times I requested one. Yet, they charged me a late fee when I paid my account, and closed it. I was so glad to be rid of them, the 200.00 they scammed from me…I had to just walk away to maintain my dignity at that point. I was livid.
Nothing was late! Nothing was even due. I used that card only once twice, because PayPal tricked me into listing it as my primary card on ebay!
I had to change my primary card designation every time I used PayPal. Every time. Skeevy.
