My house was flooded in the Queensland floods in January. Friends set up a website and paypal account to donate money so I could have my house repaired and replace a few things. $2,800 was raised, all from people who know me through a garden society, but Paypal has just had me running around in circles, providing the same very personal information over and over, making calls to offshore places and getting nowhere. I am disabled and had to replace all my appliances and wheelchair too on borrowed money and now I am struggling to repay it. WHY ? Paypal has had my money for nearly 5 months but as they dont have a direct number or an office in this country, that I can find, then it appears that I have been ripped off right when I could least afford to be.
