I think I've got a big problem today..... I went to buy a graphics card from someone through PayPal. So I sent the cash to the seller via PayPal. The seller sent me the money back in a refund saying the item was out of stock, I went to check my bank account having just purchased the product somewhere else to find the refunded money not in the account. Sure enough, on PayPal it says the £290 is under temporary hold by PayPal! Help!!! When I googled this there's thousands of pages saying 3 weeks to as long as 6 months to get the money back with many never getting their cash back at all! :O!! I need that money! I've emailed paypals customer support to ask what's going on.

Best thing to do is to call PayPal. I think they do all this for fun.

Happened to a relative recently, a few hundred quids worth of payments he had sent out were reversed as suspicious but it was all in line with his normal account usage!

Would this be the same though? The original payment was approved and not treated as suspicious but then the refund was taken from me :/ also doesn't it cost a lot to ring up big companies like this? And is it possible to claim the interest back off PayPal for putting my account illegitimately -£260 for no good reason? God damn them......

Happened to me a few months back. I rang them and they told me the money would be back in my account within 5 days. It was so all was good.

How soon after the call did you actually get it? I need it by Tuesday :/

just got through to customer service, turns out its a clerical error, the refund was so quick after payment that before pay pal can transfer back my money, they have to receive it from HSBC then send it back. So its all fine. can a mod advise as to weather i should leave or close this? i imagine its not just me whos worried about this before?
