Default eBay sent the debt collectors

Okay so I've got like 600+ sitting in my limited PayPal, it has been like this for a few month now. I owe eBay 80+ but refuse to pay it out of my own money, I really don't understand the logic in blocking their own company from taking their money out of my account so I'm waiting until I get access to my money so that I can pay it.

The account is a ghost account but was linked to my original limited account through IP address I believe.

They've sent some debt collector in a bid to get the funds from me. I am not paying this out of my own money, there is no way that is happening so they can wait a few more months like I'm doing. I shouldn't have to wait 6 months to get my own money to say they can wait the same time, surely?

I'm not sure if eBay would approve but oh well.

I am worried if they will go to the lengths to find out who I really am? So far they haven't. As far as I'm concerned I don't even have to pay their fees if I don't want to (suggested by somebody on here)

Also, can I get my funds 6 months after my last sale or 6 months after the limitation. Thank you!

They are not the same company. They split up a while ago now

If I was in your position I would just pay the 80 and then wait to get the money out.

Is it really worth the stress you could have over them sending bailiffs after you if it came to that for 80?

Thanks for the advice.

I got an email from Deb Solutions (Holdings) Limited

Can anybody confirm if it's 180 days from the last sale or limit?

Best thing you can do is give eBay their fees. You did use their service so you should pay their fees

Then in 6 months you can get your money out of the PayPal

This will save you worrying about bailiffs ect and it is the right thing to do

eBay and PayPal are not the same company anymore

You do need to care if this has gone as far as a debt collector.

Act to lower any and all risks of paypal deciding to be antsy with you.

They have form for doing this.

do threy have a court order ? i dont think they will have one. ebay may have sold the debt . without a court order they can do nothing . if they go to court you get the opportunity to reply before a judgement is made. without a court order they cannot enter your premises

Likely 180 days from date of limitation for your money - debt collector harassment likely to continue

Not wanting to repeat myself again, but do you really want all this possible hassle over 80....

If they wanted to get a court order against you it would be pretty cut and dry.

You did use their services and you do owe them a fee. Pretty easy to find in their favour

You would then also have all the added costs of a court order and it would go from 80 to 100's very quickly.

Just pay them their money and wait out the PayPal....

It is as simple as this. The way the eBay and their debt collector look at it, you are talking about 2 separate issues. And technically, they are correct. It is what you agreed to when you signed up.

Is eBay going to take you to court over it? Probably not. But if they have any way of linking this to you, then you could have a black mark against you on your credit report for 7 years. And you may not care right now, but a few years down the road when you want to by a car or a house, or whatever and you need credit THEN you will care.

But if there is no way to link you, then that will not happen. But is it REALLY worth the stress? I could see it of your money is now so limited that you can't feed you kids, but if you have the money, I would say just pay it so you don't have to worry about it.

With all due respect Jeff, this is incorrect from a UK point of view...

You usually get approx 5 letters from the appointed debt recovery company and then a couple of solicitors letters as well then thats it - in my experience when i got scammed over a pair of trainers and refused to pay up.. howeer listen to James North and just pay up the 80 notes -

Its 180 days since the last payment into the account

Although they can be a bit awkward about it if the limitation was well after the last payment into the account

This.

Every single day there is a post about the same problem: somebody has to pay for the services that they used, but because they don't have directy their name on the bill, they think that eBay/Paypal should get their money from the God above.

Jesus people, what the **** is wrong with you?
Is the 80 really worth the trouble? Is it really worth to have some grumpy looking dudes turn up at your house? Try explaining that the the fella who doesn't even know how to operate a flip-phone and who eats protein powder without milk before he leave the house in the morning.

**** sakes, life is not THAT difficult- Why do people get butthurt and act like they have all the rights NOT to pay the invoices? I mean, seriously man?

it is to me because i could do with the 80. at no point am i disputing that I shouldn't have to pay for the services, I am just withholding that payment until I get my money. it is worth the stress for me, maybe not for you.

i will hope for the best or pay in the future when i'm better off.

thanks for the advice

For me it is always 180 from the limitation date.

If the debt collectors actually have your address I would pay the fees. Only think that can happen is that the fees keep going up for each reminder and you have to pay anyway. Best case scenario you pay for it in 6 months but is that worth the risk?

I am surprised ebay dont take there monies from paypal this would make life more pleasant for everyone
I once made ebay wait 180 days for PayPal to release funds this was many years ago
and I only did it in-case PayPal played silly buggers and kept my money
they paid me and i payed ebay same day

20 replies and you're still debating paying them over 80.... use a bit of savvy and pay them what you owe otherwise you'll be back on here with another post saying you now owe them hundreds of ..... easy 'business' decision, pay the fee while it's low.
