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.
Paypal is definitely not a scam. The problem is that they don't haven't many customer service employees so solving everyone's problems takes them quite a long time. They sometimes freeze people's accounts for no reason, but the issue normally gets resolved. I have been using paypal for quite a long time now, and I have not come across an issue like yours before. They do have relatively high fees, but they are not a scam. The scams only occur when people start charging back things. That is a big problem with paypal and it is the reason a lot of people have stopped using it.

I don't think paypal is a kind of company who will scam people, or cheat them just because of money. Although paypal is very strict to their rules when it comes for the documentation or valid id for verification to there clients. It doesn't mean they have lots of complaint they are scam at once, no its not like that. maybe it is only the clients react due to their policies was very strict. this is just only my opinion

i do not think that paypal is scam because we know that paypal is a biggest service and paypal was very famous before bitcoin and now a lot of people are using bitcoin for online shopping because bitcoin is more available in everywhere than paypal for online shopping .
Im agree with you overall Bitcoin is better than paypal because the number one issue of paypal service is their fee its more higher than Bitcoin.And the second one Paypal is not easy to use unlike Bitcoin.

Absolutely, Paypal is not scam, but after Bitcoin became popular, it got easier to transact with no fear of getting my account freezed and high fees, and get wrongly disputed. Paypal is also tough to fund in few countries. But sometimes transacting via Paypal helps as it is much secure and faster.

with their reputation and recommended by many people, i don't think paypal will do this as they survive until now and reach the most members that use their service. most people select paypal because the security for the account is good and can give protection for the member. beside that, many country that allow paypal to do their business and paypal itself like a bridge between the buyer and the seller in e-commerce. so in this circumstances, i think paypal won't do it unless they want to get losses of their members.

Well, I don't really know about Paypal I just saw it in some online shops that the items that you purchased can be paid by Paypal. Then when Im clicking that button the amount turns to Dollars. So for me Paypal its not a scam because some or maybe mostly online shops are using it as one of the method of purchasing products.

I haven't tried to use PayPal but I don't think that they are going to scam their users they might having some trouble or problem with their services, PayPal is already a wide company and there are many people who are using PayPal so that they are having a hard to serve you and response to all of you simultaneously or maybe they are just having a little maintenance ? well I don't know Grin I have some Friend who bought a Laptop using his PayPal so i think the service is normally operating right now .

They do not have any problem or trouble with their service but the reality is that they often freeze accounts of their users and do not find any other rule for their doubts and do not pay their users what they freeze from them so people when see heir hard earned money being freeze thing they are as scammers.

They are not going to scam people but the problem is in their services because once you have received big amount money they gonna ask you some verification or it will freeze your account, my first PayPal got limited because I violate some rules (they do not allow currency exchanges) I created new PayPal again and I only use it for buying stuff on internet. So far, I don't have problem in PayPal.

Giving your paypal email means they have it and can use it for their own scams. They're not going to buy anything or arrange payment or shipping. All they want is the email address.

Craigslist is OK for selling things to people you can meet in person and get cash in hand from, but anyone who wants to use PayPal and needs shipping is clearly not someone living where you ( or the police ) can find them.

I think the chances are low that PayPal can get into the scam category, since there are a number of users around the world using the service for years, and there are a number of regulatory agencies that certainly have already inspected the service. So if it was a scam, maybe it would not be working until today.
I believe that many users can go through problems though, since with points of centralization, there are also points of failure. The best thing to do in this case is to get the help of the support until they solve your problem.

Paypal has excellent service, they will freeze temporarily until they are verified for every large transactions. you do not have to worry about it, and if the goods do not conform to what you expect, you can use purchase protection.

It's not scam, ok, but their service isn't good anymore, since bitcoin started it's the best option to do online transactions. It's waste of money to use paypal, they take high fees and the service is limited and centralized as you said.
If we can use a good currency decentralized like bitcoin there is no reason to continue using paypal, the only problem are the sites don't accepting it.

Paypal is reliable company they very strict, so if you won't to get issues with your paypal account you need to learn about their rule, mostly people who their paypal account getting issues because break the paypal rule, and i don't think paypal will scam, because now we have choice if you not comfortable with paypal you can use Bitcoin.

Paypal is not a scam what it happens is there is no way to get everyone happy, even if 99% of paypal costumers are happy with the service, there is a 1% that is unhappy and very vocal about it, and when you add the internet and money on top of it you have the recipe for some really bad reviews for their service.

Everywhere haters are there, haters gonna hate just like what others are saying. I'm using paypal and I don't have issues with them.

People are the ones who have tough competition who did made their account freeze by paypal accusing them to be scam.

It's a legit service and it was already proven many just hates their fees.

paypal is not a scam. They provide service which get really popular nowdays. It makes buying and selling so much easier because many merchant use paypal. Yes, they have they own issues and problems such as high fee and their regulations are very strict. So far i never have problem using paypal.

I do believe Paypal is credible. Thet are connectsd with banks so this company is really strong. With your complaint I guess there have just been an error with their system. That is all the explanation they will say also. I just dont like the way their customer service handle this kind of mistakes and add up their transaction fees, it is too high even for a minimum transaction.  I suggest switching to something else although many online shops prefer Paypal as payment there are still options there.

Exactly, they charge too much for low amounts transaction and it literally reduces the overall profits in such tiny deals. I live in a country where PayPal is forced to withdraw all of the amount received in a bank account associated with that PayPal account of the user. A credit card is required to send payment to others so it's really messy as compared to that of cryptocurrencies.
