Paypal Update

The notorious George from Greece got me again. Paypal seized my funds again. Recall that he bought plans for a powercat design in early December and wanted them emailed. That was done, including dxf lines for all parts needing that. Recall also that he also later demanded the plans be revised from foam/glass to plywood/epoxy at no cost to him. When I told him that extra work had to be paid for, he got a full refund from Paypal. Even though he had the plans. Paypal later decided in my favor.
Just today Paypal seized my funds again. His bank in Greece seized the funds from Paypal, and Paypal in turn took mine, again. So again I have to forward all the emails and information showing he got his plans. I, and any other designer has to feel very vulnerable using Paypal. I cannot even confront his bank. Earlier someone noted other designers only accept bank drafts or similar. Very dangerous situation.  And instead of designing, I spend today putting together my case.   Again.

  1. Bitcoin! Non-reversible, instantaneous funds transfer, miniscule transaction cost. Convert it to dollars immediately and you eliminate exchange rate price fluctuation risk. No wonder the banks and PayPal hate it.
