I think someone just want trick you because how can you tell that paypal is scam? I am using paypal since i want something from internet when i don't have credit card to use to buy that item or just for paying some good services online and paypal is really good and good performance as well.
maybe you're right. I also do not believe that to be a scam paypal. to my knowledge, paypal payment processor is the most reliable on the internet, besides paypal also has a security system that is greater than any other payment processor. so I feel that paypal does not may be a scam. maybe you do a little mistake about it
They are just halving some problem about paypal  like other said they are scam in buying bitcoin and charge back from paypal..
Or no refund policy in what you are buying.. paypal is just like arbitrage or escrow that giving buyers and sellers protection.. its just a payment processor.. our accounts is our own security how matter you protect your account it depends on you..

PayPal is best for Internet Marketers. Their sole use is to provide payment solutions covering affiliate network / sale transactions. It's not common to have zero issues with them if you only use them as a gateway to your bank + access the debit card.

Financial institutions have common issues, despite this something you do may trigger alarms... So be sure to learn proper usage or try utilizing professional behavior so you can start avoiding this. Of course upgrading to a business account will reduce problems if acting professionally.

No.. Paypal is definitely not a scam. It's a very big corporation which I doubt that they won't do anything that is illegal. It's their reputation will be on the line if they would do such scam because paypal uses by millions of people all around the world and it will be a big lost for them if that happens.

Well that is certainly true. If paypal fraud then can be sure his reputation will go down, and those who feel deceived by paypal will get huge advantages if they reported the incident to the paypal company. So, chances are that we are experiencing an error or in violation of the procedure that has been set by paypal. so this is not a scam

The Paypal protects the frauderest in some occasions. The charge back system works well for scammers.

I also think that there was a some kind of mistake or failure. Paypal solid firm, has established itself over the years. I think things will get better

actually you need to be approved by paypal first when you are requesting charge back in order to avoid any fraudulent chargeback but unfortunately paypal just can be easily tricked by smart ass scammers so it's just end up not better than worse
That is true because I have had that experience when I ordered a services using paypal but the seller fails to deliver the services, when I ask for a charge back the seller was very smarter than I thought, he refused to refund the money and it gone for nothing. I guess scammers do use and throw paypal accounts, that was the real problem I had faced here.

You have a different perspective point. Paypal is trying to implement different ways of security in order to prevent scammers to not to scam others but actually these are the scammers who are taking benefits from their implemented rules and innocent people are being scammed.

Is paypal a scam: yes it is, its purpose of transfering funds has taken a back seat to tracking your funds.

This   is very  correct, Paypal  is already  established  company do offer   services  on  online transactions  but  they have   huge amounts  of fees  thats the disadvantage and  also  its cashback feature which  do scammers use this  thing  to scam other  people and making advantage with this thing. Paypal arent  scam at all,  People are making  foolish things  to ruin their  reputation.

I would also recommend that you stay away from Paypal like all the other people on that website is saying. Paypal freezes your funds for 180 days for unknown reasons. You could always exchange your Paypal funds into Bitcoin funds in the Currency exchange board. So, if you don't want somebody disputing their payments to you, or getting your account frozen for 6 months, then go ahead and convert all your Paypal funds into Bitcoin.

Oh, today I experienced paypal for "lice"! Year paid through them for the purchase, it was more or less, but when the seller sent me an empty package, all of the claims were not recognized. He sent it! And the fact that they have alleged "buyer protection!" is everything to like I'm naive fools! People read reviews! Be careful!

even though this case was already being spoken loudly by some paypal users but they don't give a flying shit,if scammers can take advantage of paypal's movement which are going to prevent scammers,then it's definitely wrong with paypal

It seems to me that PayPal simply overestimated their capabilities. And so their business broke down and collapsed. Personally, I'm sorry, I sometimes use the system

In my previous years when I was on a PTC site I saw that one of the PC site account was freezed by them and their account was fully verified but the only reason was that the site was paying a large amount everyday to a large number of accounts (it was claimed by the site at that time) so it shows that they are scamming.

Yes, Paypal itself is not a scam and is being used widely for online payments. The only thing is that the structure of papal is such that scammer can easily exploit it to do scam with innocent people.
For example, one feature of Paypal is transaction reverse, which a scammer after the services and goods can reverse the transaction and thus scam the buyer.

Paypal its  not  scam  because  its been here all over the years and   being used  by millions of people already regarding  on  online  transaction on  buying things  and  money transfers.  Paypal scams actually are those transaction  made by other   regarding  on those trading  bitcoin to paypal.

PayPal is best for Internet Marketers. Their sole use is to provide payment solutions covering affiliate network / sale transactions. It's not common to have zero issues with them if you only use them as a gateway to your bank + access the debit card.

Financial institutions have common issues, despite this something you do may trigger alarms... So be sure to learn proper usage or try utilizing professional behavior so you can start avoiding this. Of course upgrading to a business account will reduce problems if acting professionally.
But I have noticed that from a longer period their users have a number of issues with paypal a number of people are claiming that their accounts have been frozen by paypal without any reason.
I think that is a bad thing and because of that people are saying that paypal is scam, if it was scam it would not have survived till date.

People are indeed complaining more and more about the ridiculous policies that PayPal is forcing on its customers, but I don't think this necessarily is a bad thing.

If PayPal continues with what they are doing (bothering their customers), then it's only a good thing for Bitcoin as it is the great alternative people have been waiting for.

No more interference from PayPal and its shitty policies, no more balance/account freezing while people haven't done anything wrong.

No more scammers making sellers lose a lot money by charging back on them, no more the need for a third party, what more do people want?

In that aspect, the more PayPal is messing around and annoying people, the more likely it is that people will hop over to Bitcoin. Wink

That is correct, even the strict policy that paypal has been making for quite a long time i does not stop scammers and hackers from exploiting the innocent and the gullible ones. That is why is better everyone should switch back to bitcoin because it offers all benefits one may need for what ever purposes.

Paypal is just a simple middleman for transactions.

However a subset of the population that use Paypal are using it for unscrupulous means.
Which is honestly kind of sad, if there were fewer scammers on Paypal, people would trust it more.

I agree with you I will say that on any site or company when we register we are redirected to a line where we are advised that read the terms and conditions before registering so if anyone will read and follow these rules then they will reduce the issues.

Paypal itself is definitely not a scam. It's a very reputable company, but there are many users who exploit it. Dealing with paypal is always risky as there is a refund or chargeback option, therefore always know the risk when dealing with Paypal.

every wise man will not use Paypal in this case. After all, taking care of his money was safe. When it was convenient service. It is a pity that now he has lost the confidence of people
