Your wages were paid into your account on pay day and your bank placed a temporary hold on the money? You would naturally be a little peed off I think.So what gives PayPal the right to do it? I had some money refunded today and its been "placed"...it means I can't touch it until PayPal say so. His could take up to 28 days to hit my account and its MY money. I e-mailed them and got back some automated reply with a list of things that tell me nothing. The refunder (who is actually a rather large hifi store in Carlisle) are as peed as I am because it means they can't withdraw it and pay it direct to my account - so basically PayPal have my money and I can have it when it sees fit. Is that right? Can I do anything about it?
