Amazon/PayPal Holding Funds

Anyone who has used Amazon or PayPal should definitely take note: I am currently gathering names and complaints from people who are currently (or have ever) been victims of Amazon's (or Paypal) fund holds. This is illegal in all but 2 states, and I want to gather as large a group as possible to make them pay for this unethical business practice. Best case scenario would be a class action lawsuit. At the very least they will be forced to pay fines and release your funds. Please email me at amazoncomplaints@gmail .com. I want to hear from anyone who has been a victim of this! Thank you!

Contracts, such as TOS's and EULA's, can be deemed void if they violate law; Under jurisdictions in which the "hold" is deemed illegal, an attorney can argue that the contract is void due to an implied consent to break the law. Thus, if the grounds of a class action is incumbent upon an illegal clause in the contract to cause it to be void, then the agreement to not engage in class actions may be deemed void as well.

Amazon Is Allowing College Students To Buy, Use, Then Return Books.

Amazon.com let a student buy a book from me, use the book for a class and then forced me to accept the return and refund the students money once the student was done with my book. Weeks after a student bought my book for her class Amazon.com is forcing me to accept the return of the book and telling me I Must Refund her money. I closed my Amazon.com Seller Account on Feb 27th 2012. Right after I closed my account this student wanted to return a book to me for refund over a month after she bought it, after she had used it for a college class, which I refused to accept. Amazon.com sent me e-mails asking me to respond, but I never receive them because my account was closd. Finally when I did get one of their emails about this return it instructed me to only repond through my Seller Account, which was closed, and I could not respond to the emails directly as no email address was provided. I could not respond in any way with my side of the story. So I called Amazon.com and spoke to Customer Service. I was hung up on several times after complaining. Finally I got a guy who told me where I could send an email with my side of the story; however, by then it was too late. Amazon.com had already made their decision, having not heard from me, in favor of refunding the buyer and charged my Visa Debit for the chargeback fraudulently for the book. Amazon.com customer service said that once my Seller Account was closed that I would not have received their emails asking for my side of the story, which is true, I did not receive Amazon.com's emails asking for my side of the story until it was too late. I would call this Fraud as I made every attempt to contact Amazon.com by calling the Seattle office over and over with no results.

Something similar happened to me. Initiate a complaint at the BBB www.bbb.org, the process is very simple.

This process forces amazon to consider and respond to your every email.

I am in the process right now and it is becoming apparent that amazon's policies are bizarre. Hopefully I will get my money back and amazon's policies change for the better.

Good luck!

Hi, a similar thing happened to me, contact the bbb (www.bbb.org, its really easy process) The BBB forced amazon to respond to my emails and and stay in contact and forces them to respond every time you communicate and records all the conversations. I still haven't gotten my money back yet, but it is forcing amazon to consider and respond to my arguments and hopefully they will make some changes that will make being a seller on amazon a better place, and hopefully I will get my money back.

All I can say about SdChRoNiC's comment is ...wow.

Good luck!

You act as tho you didn't expect it? " Amazon let a student buy from you?" I'm sure they held a gun to your head too!

Students who buy these books don't want to keep a 100.00 book that they won't ever use again!

As having used this service, it has been very nice to have another resource for texts. I also have books for sale, and will gladly help out fellow students, I'm sure your book wasn't brand new anyway

Idiots at amazon

Its monday, ordered 2 items last wednesday, called friday night and no delivery information. called and spoke to rep who could tell me nothing but the goods had shipped. so, they sent me UPS tracking for 2 packages, saying in transit. IT WAS NOT. packages actually shipped days later. I called today and they grilled me like it was my fault for following up. used the website immediate callback feature 10 times, and no body returned my call. got them to return the call going thru chat. they the could not figure out the problems. they were rude and not professional. dont buy from amazon.com
