Default Paypal's newest trick for me

So check out Paypal's newest illegal scam. I sell an item on ebay, buyer says he needs a few days to pay. So he finally pays by echeck a few days later and paypal puts a 21 day hold on the payment. So now they deduct the amount of the payment from my balance to hold on a payment that has not even cleared, causing me to go into negative balance. Now they want me to restore my negative balance or be limited. I remember at one time there being an option to turn off accepting echecks, but I am not sure it still exists.

Don't be saying that stuff. It's not a scam. It's not illegal. You accepted their terms and that's what they do. Find out the way to beat them.
It is unethical and annoying though.

btw, Welcome to the forum. There's a heap more posts like yours. Solutions do exist.

@doughboykilla - That is what I did. Refunded and told him there was a problem with his echeck and issued a paypal payment request.

@GreenBean - How is that not illegal? It would be like having $500 in the bank, depositing an out of town check for $1000 and then having the bank deduct $1000 from your account to cover the uncleared check. It would make your account -$500 and then causing overdraft fees.

Just because Ebay/Paypal puts something in their TOS, doesn't make it legal. If they put in their TOS they could rape me if I have a negative balance, I suppose I should bend over.

Stop splitting hairs. From your posts you know exactly what and how paypal are. You also know they are not a bank. A merchant account might be better for you.
