Why when Paypal Closed my account a number of years ago!! it is Causing problems for grandchildren.

Hello. Some years ago my Paypal account was closed and apparently blocked. Thats is their right but I had a letter - apparently guaranteeing that the GHD hair straighteners were genuine - apparently not so so all 5 sold - Paypal automaticallt refunded irrespective and closed the account- Not a problem to me as it was not intentional and made me think twice about any dealings on EBay. However now my grandchildren have grown up ( 22yrs old for 0ne) and they have been prevented from opening an account with no reason given. I have same computer, same address but believe may be different 'TalkTalk' now may of been BT then. Any advice please.

Can't use PayPal !!

If you have your banking account number off a check or credit card and an email address, you should be able to create a Paypal account. Paypal wouldn't care whose name is on a computer, an internet service, or an email account. Unless you're not explaining the whole story, of course.

I'm sorry to hear what happened. You need to get in touch with PayPal because they are the ones who's going to give you instructions, you may need to verify some information so that they will allow you to discuss everything regarding the account.

Here is a link where you can contact them.;jsessionid=VJrGTh1JVv1hg8lvn12JnJP2CjBLmpR1lyMW7CDNBLpvzvz4D1S4!123770165?t=escalateTab&cmd=_help&locale=en_GB&countrycode=SG

You can contact them via email or phone but you need to log in.

Hope this helps

Sometimes with big companies like these it is hard to gather enough proof to even get their attention, but in this case it seems as though you do have a good amount of proof, especially if they told you that they were having technical difficulties at the time of the email error. From what you have posted i would say that 90% of the burden is on them and they are responsible for damages ($270), but the other 10% is that it is your responsibility to have all the records and such, if you do (which it sounds like you do), i can recommend that you get on the phone with paypal and be relentless, make sure that you have your proof ready, but again, BE RELENTLESS. Don't let them convince you that it is your fault or that it never took place, because $270 is a lot to me and you, but not to a big company like them.

Good luck!
