PayPal is stupid

so i keep looking for alternative ways to get the money off of paypal. I can't keep pushing back the bill, it just keeps piling up higher and I don't want the money I was given to go to waste. I'm trying to look for alternatives but it seems that no site anywhere will accept paypal =/ I found one, I hope it's legit but thats why I'm making this journal now. I sent an email to paypal asking about the site, but they're not helpful in the slightest.. so if someone can tell me if they've used this PrePaid PayPal site and if its legit? or if anyone is willing to give it a try themselves.. heh.. I'm just afraid of putting so much money in there and then getting scammed >_<;;

I've sent so much information and so many emails to pay pal and they have yet to do anything useful or respond coherently about what I was asking.. so if anyone knows a better site, please do tell me. if anyone knows a way I can transfer all that money on paypal to a gift card or a prepaid debit card I can use to pay a bill that would be so useful. thank you for taking the time to read this.
I'm stil working on the commissions, sorry I haven't posted up anything new in a while. My fingers began to blister and hurt badly ^^;;

Have you actually called paypal on the phone? I've had to call them before due to someone trying to hack my account. Sometimes it's the only way to get someone who can fix the problem.

I actually did =/ they did not respond well to me at all. the guy didn't speak English well enough and made it abundantly clear he didn't care to try and listen to me. I was polite, asked slowly, and I tried to give as much information as possible. but the guy just kept ignoring everything I said and kept saying the same thing over and over which wasn't what my issue was about -_-

they keep telling me I need to give them more information, but I have multiple times =/
they also never "added money" to my bank account so that I can verify it is my account. they just don't seem to want to work period.

sounds like you need to go above their heads and talk to someone with a brain.

Just call back, you'll get someone different. I worked in call centers before, some people are retards, others will actually help you.

I'm going to have to call back, but no one is ever picking up.

OMG, same problems I had before. Its either that your account must've been frozen due to money being sent there within days, hours, or weeks. Or paypal just acting like a bunch of dicks again, as usual. ._.

Well, this won't help you get your money, but you should submit your complaint to http://www.paypalsucks.com/ . I don't know how to help get your money back, but at least you can spread the word about this as much as you can.

Many recorded instances of them freezing accounts, usually ones with more than 100 dollars, and never releasing it. It's free money for them, and some of the reviews suggests that their policy says you have to prove you didn't initiate the whole thing for them to unfreeze your account and money. Of course, you can't prove something didn't happen for the same reason you can't prove God doesn't exist.

http://complaints.paypalsucks.com/how-can-paypal-get-a... This complaint says they sometimes freeze it for long periods of time before releasing it so they can accumulate some interest rate profits, too. So, this sort of stuff seems totally commonplace and normal every day routine for PayPal.

Might I suggest transfering it to someone you know that has a bank account and can simply pull out?

https://personal.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_render-con...  That's a Paypal-offered service.

What's the issue in trying to get the money, though?

PayPal isn't stupid.
They're pretty smart.
They have expensive lawyers to help get them out of trouble while they screw you over. 83

can you get a paypal card? I would think you should be able to pay them with a card wether it be linked to paypal or or your bank.

Is it possibble to send your paypal money to ohter paypal users still?   If so maybe get someone your know in person, or a relative that uses paypal to exchange paypal money for cash?   That's the simpliest way I would go about it myself in your position.

Seems legit.  https://personal.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_render-con...

You can also get a regular debit card for your acount through paypal, I have one myself.

I woukd stop using paypal for income though, highl risky.  Get a square account, or something like it and take credit cards.  If someone whines about not having one, tell them to buy a prepaid one with cash at a 7eleven, walmart, wallgreens, where ever really.

Paypal is lame because theyre not regulated like a financial institution.  They do things that would be illegal or a bank to do.  I only use them or eBay.

The site looks legit. Has a cert with Verisign inc and such. I'd be surprised if it was a scam.

Hope things work out for you. >_< [hugs]
