I have had an issue with Paypal and while I was trying to look for a solution on the internet, I came across this website (https://www.consumeraffairs.com/online/paypal_02.html) where everybody is complaining about Paypal. Most of the complains were actually similar to the one that I have. I thought Paypal is a credible company but now I have started feeling worried about my funds stuck in the accounts.

I don't think that PayPal is a scam, they are trusted financial platform which have been serve for many years.
Whenever any funds could not be retrieved and customer service didn't respond, that may some issues occurred, they are not perfect and it's your choice whether to trust them or not.
Certainly not a scam, this would have not exist for a long term if it is proven to be scam. Still many users are benefiting from the service of Paypal and we cannot just make accusations without valid evidence.
Chances are someone has looked after from paypal competitors or even wants to provoke kolaps on the market because of accusations towards paypal.

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

Perhaps those who have such information when peers quite specially conceived just such a reaction. I do not know the reason, but I'm also starting to worry about when I use paypal.

We had a few times to use paypal and wm, but as one system and the other tried to discredit the negative information. But I will say one thing, that I paid for air tickets and hotel room and everything was fine, but the wm, a greater percentage of crushes. That's all the problems.

I think that PayPal is not a scam at all you can even chargeback things what is just great right ? I think PayPal is maybe even better than bitcoin on this moment.

No actually paypal is not a scam .it is actually used for paynent and recharge and just sending money .well if u want to send that money to that bank u have give some tax which is very important.
tax or fee money is not stolen money dude, it was in need paypal transaction work smoothly and of course your paypal is a company and of course they want to make profits, and course fees or taxes to maintain their system as well
Why paypal believe scams. Is there such evidence. After all, they provide certain services and users, as far as I know, are satisfied with this. I think that this is nonsense.
People beleive paypal as scam because when a person find any issue with his account then the paypal team freeze all of his money which the bitcoin community do not do because bitcoin care of its users so tis community consider the act of paypal as scam.

With this feature we cannot say that paypal is better than bitcoin because there are a number of scammers who use this feature of paypal to scam people they pay for goods and then charge back by making any false accusation etc. Bitcoin is more better than all payment processors.

of course, this is just a misunderstanding, never paypal deceive their users. if your money is stolen it would have been done by hackers. because I recognize the security system of paypal is pretty ugly

I'm sure not. We all know that Paypal is a great company, besides that they are also working with banks, credit card and other financial institutions. If you are experiencing problems with paypal, contact their support team is always ready to respond, and the most important is they also have official offices that we can visit.

That's the truth about paypal, even though we are hating on how paypal operates when it comes to the fees. But their service for their users are totally exceptional and we can't deny that still it is one of the best way to reach out those payments that we need to receive or to pay. Because they are already in the industry for a lot of years.
this time even though I was still using bitcoin when circumstances forced to pay for something, I also recognize that bitcoin is method of sending money that is very nice and makes it easy

     No, people are scammers and not paypal. Paypal is a payment system and I am not against it. I have used two times in the past and I will use it again when I will buy something from the other edge of the planet. I love bitcoin I want to transact with bitcoins but can I chargeback? Of course not because bitcoin is irreversible. But If I want to send money to a friend of mine miles away or to a trusted merchant of course I will transact with bitcoins. Thus, the main difference between these two cases is trust and paypal for me is something like an escrow.

Paypal is a company with a name, history and reputation. This looks like anything but scam.

Exactly, PayPal is money service with lon history of reputation. But like everything else people misuse it so you could get scamed by people using PayPal not PayPal itself.
They have tge rules and policies to protect the users that sometimes are not very effective but you can't blaim PayPal for all the bad.

Paypal is for sure no scam, I can even laugh about it, I think that PayPal is even better than bitcoin and the fact is that you cannot even compare them with each other.
PayPal is doing great things and the refund system is the best.

Paypal is not a scam but its actually too much tied with rules and regulations and some horrible terms and conditions and that is what makes PayPal look like a scam, but in reality its not.

That's right, probably because they're based on first world country which is US and really tied with the rules, can't even breaking any rules if they want to keep their company running and gain profit
most of regulations or rules which is released by paypal and inserted into their website just really limiting the freedom of their users in my honest opinion

They are not a scam, but keep in your mind that they may require you to reveal you identity and confirm it at some point.

They are performing under the governments laws and they must verify yourself in order to prevent them self from getting closed.

I used Paypal before so I don't think is it a scam. Perhaps scammers are using Paypal's name to take advantage of other people. So Paypal should educate its user on how to spot scammers posing as Paypal.

Its not something that is scamming but its sometimes weird how some transactions go and if you are doing it with paypal and friends its bad news for you because you cannot get your money back on that way.
