Pay pal & E bay up date
Posted on Jan 19, 2018 8:13 AM

Yesterday decided only way to fix the problem with my money was to get coustomer service on the phone. Well that is an awful mess to say the least. first you get the automated system and they have noting there of help so you have to say coustomer service then set thru about 20 minutes of computer crap you can do at Pay Pal .com.

Finally get a real human although the english isn't so hot and had to ask for a repete some times.
After talking to that real human and him telling me just what I had ordered and when he said he could not help me because the funds came from a E Bay gift card I should call them.

Call E BAY and in shorter time than at PP I get a real human to talk to I think? Her favorite saying was I under stand which she sure didn't. She tells me she understands, wants to know the gift card number, Are you kidding I redeemed the card way back in August and don't keep those cards laying around. She again says she under stands as I am boiling over and says I have to contact pay pal.



So a part I could have ordered from some nice people in NJ for $125.00 includeing shipping and was told If I bought it thru E bay would save me the shipping cost has cost me $125.00 for a 99.00 part with free shipping.

I don't know what good it will do but I am going to contact the Michigan attorney general and see what happens, probably not much.

Pay pal & E bay
Posted on Jan 18, 2018 7:38 AM

Wanted to buy a car part sold on E bay which I have never did before so contacted the seller and asked about buying direct.
I was informed buying thru E bay was the best way because ther part was $25.00 cheaper and free shipping. Not wanting to use a credit card on line to protect my account and idenity, (Hey I am just Old and do not trust those so called safe sites.) I go and buy a E Bay gift card. You have to put the gift card money in pay pal which I did and bought the car part. I had a balance of $26.00 left over in my account. Been trying to use that $26.00 for months now to buy things and they are not allowing me to buy any thing till I give them a credit card and number.

So I will say I have tried and tried to get ahold of pay pal and get some thing done so I can use thr $26.00 or just have it returned to me with out any luck.

I will say if I ever recover my $26.00 from pay pal I am finished with them. Amazon is so much better to deal with and many other companies I can call and use a credit card over the phone.

I think at this point I am going to reach out to my states atternoy general and see if they can get some thing done for me.


Just fed up.

Burr way below normal here.
Posted on Jan 3, 2018 10:59 AM

Makeing a lot of potash for the raised beds next spring. The England 28 3500 furnace is being filled twice as much as when it is normal. the england 28 3500 is a wood burning furnace that is added into the duct work of one's other heat source. Ours is Electric forced air and was disigned to put yopu in the poor house if you want to have a warm house.

I can not remember the last time I/we allowed the electric furnace to come on and run, may not now I suppose. I was working a lot of over time in 1995 And couldn't get time to cut fire wood. So we ran it a couple months back then and had a electric bill of $450.00 the first month and $375 the second. We bought wood to finish out the year to the tune of $175.00 way cheaper than electric.
