Paypal Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • V (@Werewolf_V) reported

    @OniShift @_Tygs_ @PayPal Bro what ********! I've had that problem when applying for jobs and airlines so know what that's like :/

  • Nana Jane #FBPE (@4mygr4ndkids) reported

    @JoshuaT70123978 yep, my colleague did this late on Friday, tired from work, got the 'Support' number from WITHIN his @Paypal account Transaction Note to get help. Answered a few questions. Lost £000s in 3 minutes. @Paypal host scammer msgs WITHIN login.

  • Jeff DeCola (@JeffDeCola) reported

    @PhxFlying One more note. You can’t opt out of getting invoices and emails from merchants accounts. The scammers will eventually make connections and people will get invoices from a “family member” asking for money, etc… This is a serious problem paypal is ignoring.

  • Trying to decide who I want to be for $8 (@WhoMeNoYouDude) reported

    Hey @PayPal - I canceled my account because I was getting so many scam requests for money and your privacy and protection from such actions is terrible. For instance I can’t block these scammers unless I first become friends with them. What a horrid system.

  • Jeff DeCola (@JeffDeCola) reported

    @PhxFlying Don’t worry, you have to accept the invoice for them to get money. I contacted paypal and they acknowledged the scam, but the invoice is still there. I don’t and they don’t have the means to quickly remove it. There software is broken as I smell a class action coming.

  • Danish Riaz (@danishdani504) reported

    @CBDUAE i'm unable to link my debit card with PayPal. It's showing an error. Contact your bank. Please look into this matter.

  • Goddess J (@goddessj04) reported

    @Michael76540059 Yes! PayPal will lock it down fast.

  • The Mrs. (@LilMissMessy) reported

    And of course I can't get anyone on the phone @PayPal as they are "too busy" to answer. #paypalscam DO NOT USE #PAYPAL as you will not be able to resolve issues with anyone unless it's automated. All the money the rake in, you'd think they'd hire more #customerservice reps.

  • Michael (@MichaelDak0taa) reported

    @reaper43hof @mlane53849 @nytimes Also “he received bachelor's degrees in economics and physics” at UPenn… physics isn’t engineering, but it’s certainly similar. He also was accepted to Stanford’s PhD program for material sciences… but turned it down to start PayPal

  • Sarah linford (@sarah_linford) reported

    @seetickets I am having trouble getting my tickets. I've payed with PayPal but on the see tickets app it's saying my email is not recognised and I haven't had any order confirmation sent ! Please help as I can't get past your enquiry form !

  • Dog/* (@ignSevenEleven) reported

    It's mind boggling how PayPal is used by many, yet they have this many problems. The irony about my experience is that I still get emails from PayPal saying things need to be done about my account. It's not like I've been waiting to fix it myself for many months.

  • Maya 🔞(Comms Open) (@MayaArts_en) reported

    I can't @PayPal I literally enter in my info correctly so many ******* times and it still says there was an error and that my information was wrong knowing DAMN WELL it's been correct.

  • John Rossi (@Takeshi_Mibu) reported

    @crystakallos @SrtaMimiiGoblin Personal and didn't even once ask for them to play together..That was a lie..And the guy obviously didn't know how PayPal worked before paying even became a thing so obviously he didn't understand some stuff and tried to show proof the entire time that he was having issues..

  • Moribund Toot (@MoribundToot) reported

    @elizableu He could have helped with world hunger instead he bought Twitter for 4x its value & then set fire to it. He didn't found PayPal or Tesla but lies about doing so. He is constantly in trouble for breaking employment & discrimination laws. & he's your hero? Get a life.

  • 🄵🄴🄺🅃🅂🄹🄴🄺  (mostly satire) (@fektsjek) reported

    @MattWalshBlog Why? When you could just issue a law to make credit card processors, PayPal ...etc 100% liable for processing transactions from porn sites. Just reactivate obscenity laws. Why only for children? What good will that do when adults can still engage in it?
