I provided http://www.ecurrencyxchanga.com with over $1300 in paypal my cash card's and they said payment will be sent in 5 hours around 3pm EST. Does anyone know about this place and/or how reliable they are? Also, If I don't receive payment and start with a paypal account specialist what will my chances be of getting my $ back?

You've been scammed. Nothing you can do unless you bought those cards with credit or debit and can chargeback.

If you searched with google you would have found:

You should post in the scam accusations section. I am quite sure there are already scam accusations against that site.

You can't do nothing, sorry for your loss. If you have bought these paypal mycash codes with cash you can't get back your "cash" with the receipts. The site is a scam, you should make some research after buy something.

A quick Google search of EcurrencyXchanga.com shows that it's nothing but a scam site. My sig even references it as a scam site.

Take it as a loss and move on. Don't waste your time with them...  Doesn't matter how much you threaten them, you will not get anything back. They'll delay with excuse after excuse but in the end you will get nothing.

How do those mycash codes work? Seems to be only for US.

Is there a chance OP can contact PayPal and ask for the refund? If he can prove he got scammed, that shouldn't be too complicated.

Coin.mx - Fees are much higher then circle though. After all the fees, you're looking at over 10% easy probably closer to 15%. 7% just to deposit $ and more when you convert that $ to BTC. You also have to verify your identity so you'll need the physical credit or debit card, which shouldn't be a problem unless you're using a stolen card or something  Wink

Cex.io added debit/credit card payments recently. If paying by card, you don't have to verify your identity.
I haven't tried it myself yet though.

It's paypal 'my cash', basically it works like gift card, you can buy it at selected retailers (US only).

Quote
With PayPal My Cash Card, you don't need
 a bank account or credit card to
 send money to your PayPal account

So there's no bank involved, so you cannot charge back, but I reckon you still should be able to start dispute on paypal etc

Hello dear,

The ecurrencyxchanga.com is scam from 2014 with a total scam of 2k
I also have a note on my ECZ (exchangecurrencyzone.com) account from user Cryptotrade
The note is like:
take note
the way people are being scammed here when checking the scam section made me to send you this so you will know some list of good company exchangers to deal with as I also lost funds here but now I cant because i found the best exchanger to deal with always.

for paypal, neteller and other ecurrency major deals www.ecurrencyxchanga.com has been the best. though paypal, skrill, payza is held for some 48hrs other exchange is instant and their btc rate, perfectmoney, WU/MG, bank wire, payer, okpay, reloadit, googlewallet, amazon, paypalmycash, vanila, moneypak, netspend, wmz etc are all best and nice rates.

you can use also www.xmlgold.net does perfectmoney, wmz, btc trades with good rates as well.

these are good registered companies you can trade with and sleep very well without worries.
sorry if you dont like my message but thank me later if it helps.
thanks.
Anyway ecurrencyxchanga.com is SCAM

I'm RED and that's GOOD, i will never be GREEN and that's not BAD! there's no one i'd rather be than me.
DEV for cryptocurrency but I HATE forks
