Paypal is on the Ball

We all have days when everything just goes wrong.

Having a bad day

This day is not going well. First I heard word that a person I knew passed away in the middle of the night. As I get older I find that knowing people my age are dying is unsettling. It is actually the reason I got the bariatric surgery on Friday. If I didn’t I wouldn’t be alive much longer.

Paypal message

The second thing is that I wanted to check with PayPal to see if my e check from another site had come came in today as expected.

When I tried to log in I got a message about my account was selected for maintenance and that I had to put in my bank account and credit card information.

Yes it was a true message from PayPal. This made me very nervous. I don’t want just anyone having this information.

So I called PayPal direct. I had to wait forever to get them on the phone. I told customer service my problem and the representative passed me onto the department that takes care of it.

Paypal security

The new representative told me they found irregular activity on my account. I asked them what irregular activity and they said somebody from outside of Canada tried to get into my account. Of course I asked if that person succeeded but they said no. As soon as they saw it was from outside of Canada they blocked my account. So that was why I got the message about maintenance when I tried to log in.

The representative asked me if I tried to access the account from elsewhere and I assured her that I would never be trying to get into my account anywhere else than where I live in Montreal.

She didn’t make me verify my personal financial information because I was not happy about doing that. She sent me a new password code and my account was restored and back to normal.

I love PayPal; they really see that full security is present on our accounts.

What are your feelings about PayPal?

Though it maybe irksome, additional security is to our benefit.

I do not have much activity with Paypal except for the occasional payments from this site - siva
