    Default Won against Paypal in Small claims but unable to collect

    Hello,
    I searched high and low but couldn't find anywhere how to collect the small claims Judgement from PayPal. I recently sued and won in New York City Small Claims Court, but there almost no info regarding how to collect it.
    Their Corp. office in San Jose, CA doesn't accept any registered or certified mail, and it'll be hard to legally pursue from New York in terms of go trough lien, garnishment and seizure etc.
    Any information would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

    wow I would never have thought that would be an issue when taking them to small claims court and I really don't know what you can do at this point. It just seems like paypal has their own way around the legal system.

    (I know the Church of Scientology has a written policy to never accept registered or certified mail, but never heard of any other company with such a policy.)

    In such cases, always check with the State's registry of businesses. In the case of California, it's the Calif Secretary of State (url: [url=http://www.sos.ca.gov/]California Secretary of State[/url]). Find the company's REGISTERED AGENT and send correspondence to them. I've never heard of a registered agent refusing registered or certified mail because that's mostly how companies get notified of legal actions, and if they don't accept the mail they can lose lawsuits by default because of not being notified.

    Have you tried a personal courier like someone who "serves" notices of lawsuits? They can provide you with an affidavit saying said package/parcel/letter was personally delivered to ______ at location ______ on date ______ at time _______. It may be pricier than USPS registered postage with return receipt requested (including signature), but at least it is a confirmed and provable delivery.

    Default Won against Pay Pal?

    I am about so go to small claims to retreive a $4500.00 illegal charge back on an Ebay auto sale. The customer has my car. He has the title because PayPal paid me . Then I transfered the funds to my bank account. Two months later PayPal took the $4500.00 back because the fraudulant buyer said it was an unauthorized transaction.
    Any advice on how to tackle Pay Pal would be appreciated.

    Just wondering but how did paypal get back the $4500? Did they illegally take it from your bank account? If they did then you can contact your bank and have it reversed for fraudulent charge. If they just made your account negative then I suggest you just close that account and ignore it. I would also file a lawsuit against the buyer.

    Does ignoring an account have and repercussions? I had a debit card with this account and they have my SSN so I'm worried it will end up on my credit but I refuse to pay them since they are playing serious games. If i can just ignore it I'm fine with that otherwise I'm going to file a suit to have my balance brought to zero they got very lil actual money from me but keep upping my negative balance by the month and dont even give me a chance to respond to claims of unauthorized transactions.

    Default pay pal lawsuits

    there are as of today 117 listed . you can see all the info here: [url=http://dockets.justia.com/search?query=paypal]Cases matching "paypal" :: Justia Dockets & Filings[/url]

    anyone can get a pacer account. the cost is around 8 cts a page I believe.

    havent used it in a while.

    for class action: file a claim at lawyersandsettlements.com maybe if enough people do someone will pick it up.

    Not on topic of the op but in your country do people not need to register a car with the government? I believe if you took it court you could access this information which in turn would prove the same person paid for it on paypal as registered it...

    Back on topic, Well done on winning in court. I'm sure you could claim it back by sending them an invoice with a copy of the court documents. Perhaps do it through a lawyer to ensure they dont try to wriggle out of it.

    Good to see others are winning the fight against paypal, however small it may seem. I hope you figure out how to collect your money though, good luck with it.

    Hire a collection company? I had never thought of that. You should be able to file court documents to take it straight from their funds. Have you been back to court? You can put a lien on their property, etc. if they owe you money.
