Did you have any luck contacting them by phone?
yup!

The good news is that the person I was making my transaction with contacted me and agreed to accept a personal check. I will pop that in the mail this morning. I have a couple more transactions that I need to provide feedback on then I will close my Ebay account.

I am probably cutting off my nose to spite my face but, I'm gonna rock my new look!

I thought I might have made a mistake because of the early hour and ran it again, another decline! Then I noticed an email from Paypal informing me that I had reached some internal spending limit and I needed to verify my account by providing additional bank information or by opening a Paypal Mastercard. I thought it might be some type of scam so I signed into my Paypal account and got the same message. Since then I have been going round in circles with Paypal. After 4 hours of this I got so aggravated I finally closed my Paypal account! I hope the poor Ebay seller will allow me to send him a check, I hate to see him harmed in this.

I hate it when it is more difficult to spend my money than it was to earn it!

Oh boy .. I completely understand your frustration.

The same thing happened to me almost 2 years ago.

They already had all of my information but would not let me access my account.

The bottom line was that they wanted everything they already had plus another credit card or for me to open their credit card. I refused.

To this day I still have not provided them any more information and will not either.

I can use my PayPal account so long as there are funds in there. However, they will not let me add funds to it from my bank account. The only reason I didn't close my account is that I get automatic payments into it from a survey company I work with.

Now it will be interesting to see what happens the end of this month as that is when my current card with them expires.

They have just gotten a little too big for the britches. They do not need more information and they will not get more from me nor will I indulge them in using their credit card.

I have to agree with you. You wouldn't tie your mortgage payment in with your car payment. And one cash account should not be tied to another. PayPal can have no say as to whether I add funds to my savings account. Or even what the balance of my savings account is. As long as there are enough funds to cover my purchase. Just for giggles I think my next purchase will be through PayPal. I wonder if I to will get declined. I certainly don't want their credit card. And when I tell them my age, I wouldn't be surprised if they hung up on me. They would probably figure I won't live long enough to make any payments after running the card up. Hmmm. Now there's a thought.

I'm frustrated this morning. My TV service is still showing standard time. I noticed it yesterday when I went to change my clocks.

According to the built in TV Guide, it is still standard time, and the shows match.

I had hoped it would have been corrected overnight, but no such luck. I did re-initialize a couple of times, no luck there either.

I'm waiting for a reply to the email I sent them yesterday.

Be patient. I never adjust my clock. Only because I know it drives my son nuts. So he changes it when he shows up. And besides, come Fall, it will be right again.

I have to remember to change the clock in the car, that one messes me up if it's not right.

Time to go fight with the bank...for some reason they hate it when I make a payment on Shrek's credit card...I always get a hassle.

Ask them if they would like to make the payment for you.

They act like I'm trying to steal money from him...heck, if I wanted to mess up his card...I'd get the card out of his wallet and go run it up. It's even worse if I try to pay it off.

Maybe you could talk to a Supervisor and find out what you need to do to get his account to be a joint account.

My Mom added me to her charge account, and arranged for me to have my own card on the same account with my name on it.
