An online "secure" payment website that leeches off of all payments (especially on eBay), holds the payments for 21 days just to enjoy watching you rip your fucking brains out, and likes to fuck your profit in the ass. This company AND eBay must be taken down.
*Person sells an expensive item on eBay for $2000*

PayPal: Your $2000 is currently being held in a temporary balance.

*21 days later*

PayPal: We're sorry but this transaction is suspected of being fraudulent. Please wait another 21 days for us to investigate your account.

*21 days later*

PayPal: Investigation is complete. We're sorry but we must hold your payment of $2000 just a bit longer because we enjoy pissing you the fuck off. Please wait 6 months for us to further investigate this transaction. Thank you.

*6 months later*

PayPal: Ok fine, we just like toying with you, here's your $1800. That's right, we took $200 of it because we enjoy taking a chunk of your profit. Thank for using PayPal, bitch.

A very shady online payment company. The bastards at PayPal keep some of the money you receive from another PayPal member. They are no good fuckin' assholes!
PayPal is a bunch of crooks!

A place that allows you to pay other people 'securely' with a credit card or bank account.

See: Ass Rape
I can't believe my Ultima Online account finally sold for 800 dollars. Time to transfer the password.

One day later after transfering password:
Paypal: Your account has been locked due to possible fraudlent activity. Please wait 6 months for us to investigate your account.

6 months later: Investigation has been completed, we were unable to determine whether the activity was fraudulent or not. Please wait another 6 months while we conduct another investigation.

12 months later: We have determined your account to be subject to fraudulent activity and your funds will be removed.

A term meaning the worst customer service, the slowest response times and the least initiative of any business at any time ever in the history of the universe.
The service there was crap but at least it wasn’t any PayPal!

A borderline criminal online payment service owned by eBay that charges exorbitant fees and has numerous traps in their "terms of service" that enables PayPal to freeze your account and seize your funds for whatever possible reason.

PayPal is run by greedy crooks, mobs, thieves and possibly terrorists and has no customer support whatsoever, only a robot that gives automated responses.

Their so-called "protection" is basically: Sure we'll protect you if something happens, we'll just rape you with fees BEFORE something happens. And if something does happen, you will need to file a case, wait six months, pay another fee and we might give you another automated response.

On top of paying eBay fees (listing, final value, reserve, pictures, etc) you are now forced to use PayPal and ONLY PayPal as your sole methode of payment... (and pay another fee that's worst than Western Union).
I sold a few items last week at a profitable margin on eBay but I made $0 because eBay took all the profit in fees. But then I had to pay PayPal fees so I am at a loss. I hope I can salvage my money because PayPal has now put a hold to my account and I will need to pay another fee to have the funds released and another fee to have to withdrawan to my bank account.
