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.
No! Paypal is not a scam, although I'm a bitcoin lover. It maybe true only that , many of their clients/customer are complaining to their services which giving them a different issues.
yes i also agree with you that we cannot consider paypal as scam, i think still its service is available in most of the countries of the world, although now bitcoin is taking its place but still bitcoin is applicable in most area.
Yeah PayPal is not a scam, this is just a service provider who helps in making business as well other transaction with certain limitations. Mainly this has been used by people who involve into cross border transactions.
Paypal is really a big community and i do not think that paypal scam to people because a lot of people are using paypal and paypal is using for internationally.
Not because paypal have chargebacks it doesn't mean that paypal is scam. You are right that there is a lot of people using paypal as their another type of wallet and most of the people in the internet use paypal. Paypal is one of the biggest company online that having service like bitcoin which is offering digital money but i think paypal and bitcoin is the same and we don't need to do an accusation for any of them because they are both created from some reason.

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.
i have experienced this thing too,my transaction of worth 500$ got freezed due to some reasons.I think it is some sort of system error and some problems about sending the money through a email.All transaction in paypal maybe disputed but there is a way to avoid it.

Really? Maybe it is just for security purposes because your having big amount on transaction and they might get in trouble on that like in banking The bank ask the client what is their source of income so they can estimate on how much money can you produce, so in paypal maybe that is their way too.

I do not know that paypal scam. I also do not support paypal, but at this time, PayPal is very used for the purposes for people who do not use bitcoin, and most of them keep the money in paypal, even large ones. so, I think it was a scam paypal not even paypal is the most reliable payment processor.

I dont think Paypal is a scam, its just that it has a high charges to users. And, many people already used this Paypal globally. Maybe people think its a scam because they find it difficulty to used the service.

It is a security process IMO. In our country whatever Payment we receive, we have to inform them from where I am getting that amount. And if the amount is big, they will ask for proof. I didn't that big amount of $1800 till now at a time, so no experience.

What you are experiencing right now is just a normal verification method used by any profit related sites for security purposes and compliance to the AML and KYL. But that doesnt mean that  paypal is trouble free because of the very strict system that if somebody reported you without any evidence the paypal will automatically blocks your account and with their poor support system you cannot retrieve your fund back.

YOu're wrong. paypal is the easiest way for the scammer to scam another person through his charge back feature. that's why  a lot of people are calling it a scam.

to me i think there is nothing wrong with paypal, the only problem is paypal is not present in all over the world as it is regional and their service is not available in all over the world. while bitcoin is present through out the world.

Yes, I've heard many complaints about this payment system. But I do not often use PayPal, so I did not have problems with it. I prefer to use other payment systems

I think that is wrong. Because as long as you can provide a correct proof of transaction to the PayPal then they will not do the reversal of payment. But if you use it against to their terms or which they are not allowing to buy items then you may be in a trouble to get back your money. Since we can't trust people online to send money first so we expect some protection to our money which PayPal is giving to buyers so they are more popular in online payments. If some people are misusing means we can't say Paypal is a scam.

I agree with you. Paypal, on the contrary, tries too hard to fight against scammers. And so sometimes you can freeze any account. It just seems to them that you are doing some kind of machinations. Just need to prove that you are working honestly

Some crypto enthusiasts will say that any centralized financial institution or service is a scam, but I don't think this is true. Paypal is simply a service that people use because somehow it makes their lives easier. I recognize that they need to improve support though.

If you are following all rules and regulations then you can use this without any problem but if you are doing something wrong then you can say its scam because they are very stick about this they are doing very good for long time and can do some more in near future

Yes of course paypal is not a scam because if they just started paypal just to scam people then they will not grow like they are what now. Paypal is one of the most big company that offer online service for transferring money and for payment system and without a doubt, paypal is keep growing like bitcoin and they are not both scam.
