I am not familiar with using it much.yesterday I sold something.the funds are in my account but it's on hold.why is this done and when will the on hold be lifted.cheers swaro
Ouch. Feel sorry for you on that.........The upshot was someone had hacked into a young ladies eBay and pay-pal accounts, bought three fishing reels from me as a buy it now.
The story it the young lady who had bought the items was actually out of the country traveling at the time of the purchase and had only just returned.
This was investigated by the police and they were in no doubt that she was telling the truth.
A week later the bomb shell, charge back approved and all of a sudden I have lost £1750.00 because I couldn't show proof the items were actually signed for, as city link, no longer in business had no system in place to save all the signatures of people receiving items, and the credit card company who funded the original purchase insisted they wanted their money back, so I as the seller lost out, and ended up not only paying the money back (leaving me overdrawn) also lost the goods.
So very much a case of buyer and seller be aware of what the worst case really could be.
