A rant by my missus the other day about Paypal............
I AM SORRY BUT I AM GOING TO POST THIS DAILY UNTIL THE PROBLEM IS PUT RIGHT!!!!!
DO NOT PAY FOR ANYTHING THAT IS NOT PURCHASED VIA EBAY USING PAYPAL
YOU WILL NOT GET YOUR MONEY REFUNDED IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM.
FOR ME – ORDERED A CHEAP BLOWN PLATISTIC LOOK A LIKE FIRE EXTINSUISHER THAT WOULD HOLD A BEER BOTTLE OR WINE BOTTLE, A COUPLE OF GLASSES (NEITHER OF THESE INCLUDED) AND A BOTTLE OPENER –RECEIVED – JUST A BOTTLE OPENER WORTH 50p $0.50
ORDERED A VW LOOKING BOX THAT HOLDS ICE FOR YOUR BEER – RECEIVED VW 4 INCH MODEL
$85 DOLLARS (ABOUT £70 DOWN AND ABOUT £5 WORTH OF GOODS)
PAYPAL REACTION – PRICELESS!!!!!!!
RETURN THE ITEMS FOR A REFUND!!!!! NOT THAT YOU HAVE BEEN SCAMMED – SORRY ABOUT THAT! £17 TO RETURN THESE – SO NOW MAY GET MY £70 BACK BUT NOT THE £17 TO RETURN THEM..
PAYPAL PROTECTION – NOT WORTH THE PAPER IT IS WRITTEN ON - A CONDOM WITH A PINPRICK IN IT IS BETTER PROTECTION.
PAY BY CREDIT CARD – DO NOT PAY THE PERCENTAGE COMMISSION THAT PAYPAL CHARGE YOU - THEY DO DIDDLY SQUAT TO EARN IT…………
MONDAY 5TH OCTOBER, RIP OFF BRITAIN HIGHLIGHTED THIS PROBLEM, A CHAP BOUGHT FOR HIS DAUGHTER WHAT WAS DESCRIBED AS A DYSON HAIR DRYER OVER £300 WORTH – DYSON SAID FAKE! SERIAL NUMBER NOT THEIRS – PAYAL ----------- PAY £138 TO SEND IT BACK FOR A REFUND!!!!! THEN JUST BECAUSE IT WAS HIGHLIGHTED ON TV – AS A GESTURE OF GOODWILL THEY SAID THAT THEY WOULD REFUND - WHAT A JOKE
SENDING THIS TO MARTINS MONEY TIPS AND POSTING EACH DAY ON SOCIAL MEDIA ….. PLEASE READ IT AT LEAST ONCE IT COULD SAVE YOU A FORTUNE…….

Gets worse. The idiots are out. Shopping in Tesco in 4’s and family groups. Family of 4, I’d say min age 40. Are the ******* nuts or what.

Fingers crossed and best wishes for a speedy recovery - let’s hope the driver gets what’s coming!
Drunk drivers and those who have no consideration for others, deserves what he gets, and then some. Really hope your nephew gets through this, bless him.

What they ^ all said. Hope he’s ok. As for the drink driver.....I hope they throw the book at him, probably won’t be enough but the sentiment is there.

Thanks guys.
Latest from my sister is that he's presently in an induced coma. He had an op to remove an embolism from his lung but they're not hopeful for his legs. We'll see in the morning.
