KBKids says an order will be received in 4-9 days. Well, it's been 7 days, they haven't shipped. Customer service hasn't responded to my email (over 2 days) and phone support told me "add 72 hours to our original estimate, so just add 4 days to the 4-9".
More anger, PayPal restricted my account for posting one unsolicited message on usenet. My money is on hold indefinetly. I have filed an 'appeal' that has been over a week with no response. Called their customer service, they say there are no front office phone numbers and no way to call their "appeal department". I'm not a lawyer, but I wonder about the legality of a bank-like instiution (I believe they offer atm cards and checkbooks now) holding my cash. Oh well, enough ranting. Thanks for hearing me out.
I'd like to read that message that got you in trouble.
The message was something like this:
If you sign up for paypal under this link: http://whatever
I will send you a free cd by mail (it's a dreamcast boot loader cd). Just send email to sinioutlaw with subject "Free CD" and your mailing address. I will only ship to people who have completed the registration process fully (verification).
Then a bunch of people said I was a scam artist, etc and I responded to them (not kindly, but not profane or anything). Then I guess one of those guys reported me to PayPal. I never received any referal bonus from this post, and I was intending to ship out the cds (I figured it would cost me about a $1 and five mins to make and ship each one). I even posted a retraction in a reply to my own message, I said "This offer is no longer available". Oh well, now PayPal has like $200 of mine from my Ebay auctions. Maybe they have the right to cancel my account, but to hold my money like this is ridiculous. Maybe I should report them to the Better Business Beauru or something. Sorry for the rant, but I'm am really ticked off about this.
