This is the first time I have had to call someone out publicly... but I am pissed first at myself and second with him for not being an honest person!!

On 1/8/18 I was going to send $137.00 in payment for goods to someone else who has an almost identical paypal addy as Mr. Chapin. Well, when I typed it in I left out one O which then sent the funds to Mr. Chapin. I then sent Mr. Chapin an email explaining my error and requesting my money back. I have received no response. I then sent an email to Paypal who has not responded.
On 1/12 I sent Chapin a refund request and still no response. I also sent a reminder of my refund request and nothing!
today I got on paypals website and what a piece of crap for help!!
you cannot speak to a human and the options they present to you are very limited. So I initiated a dispute and of course paypal says you have to try and correct the issue with the other person within 20 days. You have no way of indicating you have already tried...
Any suggestions on the best way for me proceed?
One thing I know is as soon as this is ended I am closing my paypal account!!!
As for Mr Chapin it better not turn out he is within driving distance because I will go and make my refund request in person!

I just recently went through an issue with a RC vendor and got Paypal to get my money refunded when the vendor was absolutely ignoring me. I had no issues with Paypal services and was able to speak with a real person in short order. I signed on to Paypal and went into the resolution center. On the page where you try to figure out what to label your problem in the Paypal system you can scroll down to the bottom of the page where there is an option to speak with a person. Select that option and a phone number and log in number is provided. Dial the phone number and, when prompted, punch in the log in number. Next thing would be you speaking to a person.

I am not a spokes person for Paypal but in spite of their high cost and cumbersome interface I don't see a safer way to buy something from an unknown source. Years ago I did something very similar to what you are describing and Paypal fixed it right away.

The older I get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Hi raholek, it has not been resolved and PayPal has not been quick to try to help.
Rockinbird, If this does not get resolved I am closing my PayPal account also.
If I received funds in my paypal account that I had no idea why it was sent to me, my first action would be to contact the sender and clarify why they sent me funds. The recipient has not made one attempt to contact me in any way and that is what pisses me off and then second is PayPal’s non-response to my complaint.

UPDATE
The transaction occurred on Jan 8th.
I requested a refund on Jan 12th

I posted this subject on Feb 8th

I just checked and the money was refunded TODAY. Coincidence it was refunded after this thread.

I will definitely be more careful how I handle my PayPal from this day forth
