Posted by KittyFireFlash on December 1, 2009

So you filed a dispute against and eBay seller, are you having a hard time? PayPal usually only allows an eBay member to file a dispute within 45 days of purchase. Is that all the time you have? No.

If an eBay seller has engaged in fraud, PayPal has 180 days to raise an investigation against a seller. You need to understand that emails from PayPal come from emailing robots, not people. These computer programs do not understand your situation. They are only programmes, robots with no human intelligence. To get PayPal to listen to you, you might have to escalate to other email addresses or contact them by telephone.

Victims contact PayPal and file a dispute against a seller. Some receive speedy refunds, others do not. Those who are not refunded immediately, are assaulted by PayPal email robots.

What happens to these victims? Some give in, thinking that they are receiving email from a real person, instead of a robot. Others know better and fight the robots. It does not matter if you bought a fake flash memory item on eBay or something else. Read: PayPal How Long Do You Have To Claim For A Refund In Disputes? A Guide About PayPal From eBayer’s Experiences.

It contains information that will be useful to you, regardless of what you bought. The key to winning a dispute with PayPal, is refusing to give up, not taking “No” for an answer.

You need to be prepared to fight back. Understand that PayPal emails come from computer robots, not from people. Never think that those emails rule. People who get their refunds have one thing in common – they refuse to be frauded and they hold PayPal accountable. Are you a person who fights for their rights? Persistence leads to success.
