    Paypal Negative- HELP! 12th Oct 16 at 1:58 PM
    Hi all,

    someone made a 2 BS case's against me on Paypal and i'm negative 750 and i'm worried he is going to do another bringing to me minus 1,000... what are the rules/laws with this as I do not want to pay it and will just stop using Paypal and close my account (If i can)

    Do Paypal take the money our my bank? I have no current cards attached to my account currently although I have had before so can they debit the account..

    Thanks, any help is appreciated

    Yep, its all about what you can prove, not what you think you know.
    Punctuation, Spelling and Grammar will be used sparingly. Due to rising costs of inflation.

    My contribution to MSE. Other contributions will only be used if they cost me nothing.

    Due to me being a tight git.

    Paypal are quite vigorous debt chasers I'm afraid, they will not let it drop and it will cost you more in the end if you add on baliff fees etc

    Paypal just ring up a lot, and then give up.

    Most are saying that baliffs do not come?

    All that will happen is that paypal will hound you for the money back, they'll ring you up a lot, and then they'll give up.

    Your credit rating won't be marked, and they won't take you to court.

    Obviously you won't be able to have a paypal account again or use ebay, but why would you want to given what they've done?

    If a debt collector sees that you are unemployed and have nothing to your name then they may give up. Seen it on "can't pay, take it away" he lived in a single room with a TV that was approx 40 years old, a tiny table with one chair. He had nothing of value and not working.

    But if your working and have assets then they can chase you for upto 6 years. Accidently sending letters to neighbours and calling you at work in the hope it forces your hand. The older it gets the further down the food chain it goes.
