Paypal debited my account

    hi everyone

    Maybe some of you had similar issue and can enlighten me what can be done.

    My bank card and bank account are connected to paypal.

    On 30th of November last year I made 4 purchases using paypal. I got confirmation from seller of 4 orders.

    I contacted paypal to see have the transactions gone through. I was informed on the chat that none of the transactions were successful. I was confused because seller confirmed the orders.

    few days later, I went to my paypal account and saw that indeed paypal transactions were successful. so the agent was wrong

    2 weeks later I got notification from paypal my account is in negative balance. I was surprised. I contacted them and paypal claims I owe them money for one of the transactions that didn't go through apparently from my bank. I contacted bank, got statement, and 4 approval codes for 4 transactions. 3 via my debit card and 1 from my credit card with clear name paypal on it.

    Paypal refuses to accept the credit card statement claiming that this card was not used as it was out of expiry date.

    But bank statement clearly says otherwise.

    did anyone come across this before? did you get it sorted?

    IS anyone here working for paypal and could assist with this?

    Thank you

    Paypal do not have official agents operating on here. Even if somebody claims to work for them on here, I would not be engaging or passing any info on from a security point of view. Id stick with the official channel and try again and see if you can get a different agent.
