I saw this on the news, didn't want to start a thread about it, and thought this thread appropriate but in this case seizing your money.> Social Security, Treasury target taxpayers 

Across the nation, hundreds of thousands of taxpayers who are expecting refunds this month are instead getting letters like the one Grice got, informing them that because of a debt they never knew about — often a debt incurred by their parents — the government has confiscated their check.

 

The Treasury Department has intercepted $1.9 billion in tax refunds already this year $75 million of that on debts delinquent for more than 10 years, said Jeffrey Schramek, assistant commissioner of the department’s debt management service. The aggressive effort to collect old debts started three years ago — the result of a single sentence tucked into the farm bill lifting the 10-year statute of limitations on old debts to Uncle Sam.

You do realize that Amazon also holds funds for new sellers, has mandatory 30-day returns, and other policies stricter than eBay's, right?


 

 

And charges a higher FVF percentage....

Re: Paypal Holding your money

Interesting, I didn't know that, but that's why I'm here---to learn!


 


It is mentioned here and there.> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PayPal


 


Although PayPal's corporate headquarters are located in San Jose, PayPal's operations center is located in Omaha, Nebraska,

Even their website buries it.> https://www.paypal-media.com/mediacenter.cfm


 


PayPal is headquartered in San Jose, Calif. with offices in Timonium, Md. Its European headquarters is in Luxembourg and its international headquarters is located in Singapore. PayPal has operation centers located in Berlin, Germany; Chandler, Ariz.; Dublin and Dundalk, Ireland; near Omaha, Neb.; Petaling Jaya, Malaysia; Sao Paulo, Brazil; and Shanghai, China. PayPal has development centers in Austin, Texas; Chennai, India; Bangalore, India; Scottsdale, Ariz.; Singapore; and Tel Aviv, Israel.


 


But we have the resources to ferret them out!:^O
