As I said 2 seconds ago in the post below, I have sent many emails of complaint to paypal about their succumbing to some hacking scam which resulted in my loss of 60 bucks, because one of my HAPPY customer's paypal acct. was stolen (they say I should call them). The customer is a good person who emailed me when I learned of the problem, but she isn't having much luck. Turns OUT she's a blogger too, and visits here all the time, who knew? Heather commented:
"Hey Gary, it's me, Heather. The one with the stolen PayPal account and who has caused you drama. I read your blog almost daily and I just checked it and read your PayPal post. I am so sorry! I really feel terrible. Give me a few days and I will pay you again (not through PayPal) if needed. I don't have the money in my PayPal because they took it from you but never gave it to me. I HATE THEM!! You are great, I hope you're not still super upset. Just know I will take care of you one way or another. I think you're an amazing artist and an even more amazing person. I love reading your blog and hearing about your adventures. :o)"
Nice of her to say all of that. Heather didn't do anything wrong, but paypal is the one who let the hackers scoop the money, soooooo, they need to settle this with her. Think of Heather here, bless her, trying to fix DOZENS of messed up transactions!
Thanks Heather, we'll see if we can get it right.
UPDATE: Paypal has been no help at all. I spent 30 minutes talking to a person in India who would not help. Apparently they say the acct was stolen so they just voided EVERY TRANSACTION. One keystroke, and there goes my money.
