Wow, how did this scam company actually make it to 10 years in business? It's weird how so many people are totally OK with processing that much money with an unregulated company.

(I used to be one of those people who said "Never had a problem with them!" until I got the PayPal account freeze myself..fun!)

A financial company that is unregulated, over the 10 years, I have heard so many horror stories. Long ago I decided not to go near them, and surprisingly managed to get by! All the eBay sellers I speak to continually complain about eBay and PayPal charges. PayPal should only be used when a Nickel and Dime payment method is required, and you can afford to loose the money! Only when PayPal provides real legal protection, will I consider signing up. Until then I'll stick with credit cards.

For every complaint you hear, there are probably also 1000 people who never have a problem. I've used them since 2001 and never had a single problem.

I visited the original headquarters in Omaha a couple months back it is just crazy up there. Now that's a company you would want to work for.

Remember when they were giving you $5 just for opening an account, and another $5 for every referral? I made $75 that way.

ha ha, I remember those days too ... they were desperate for customers back then.

I dont have that problem. You must have it set up wrong (ie. writing an eCheck instead of taking it directly from your checking account)

how about lowering prices for the anniversary
I'd rather they sped up the process of confirmation of sending money through a bank account. It's stupid I have to wait 8 days every time I order something just for the payment to clear.
