Despite tweeting a couple-three times and posting to the CAPP News Forum, it doesn’t seem to be getting the attention it deserves. There are 100 million+ potential victims out there.
Lord knows none of the popular ebay-centric sites and/or their faithful disciples are going to pick this up since they depend on ebaY and PayPal ultimately for their income, and they’re only in it for the money.
I’ve decided to try a little change in tactics to alert the public to the very real potential of life ruining consequences should they get thrown into PayPal’s bag o’ tricks.
I’ve composed a few trendy meme posters to help get the word out, as every picture is worth a thousand words. These images open full size in a new tab or window
I’m asking for your assistance in creating more awareness in order to keep innocent or hapless people from falling victim.
I’d like you to tweet, retweet, blog, make flyers, posters, videos etc and post the info in as many places as possible, including but not limited to twitter, facebook, wherever and whatever social media site and gathering places. Don’t overlook ebay/PayPal’s very own community forums. That is where most people stand to be educated about and protected from these very real threats, and where the greatest amount of misinformation and assorted skullduggery regarding PayPal’s purported ‘safety’ and ‘trustworthiness’ is found.
If a significant shizzlestorm or LoLzstorm occurs in the socialsphere, things may happen. It’s been shown many times over that is the one and only way to get their attention. However doubtful, Paypal may improve it’s site security, customer service, policies, public relations techniques, and quit blaming victims for PayPal’s own ailments. Otherwise, millions of people can expect to get a$$Raped, PP’d upon, then kicked to the curb. Sadly though, even if Paypal were to change their ways, I doubt that victims past or present would be forgiving of them after all that has happened.
Anyone familiar with PayPal knows they have a history and reputation for some of the sleaziest affairs ever witnessed. There is no lie too big for them. In addition, history shows it is standard operating procedure for them to blame users/victims for ID theft, compromised or hacked accounts, etc, and cover-up any such information, no matter what the facts show.
These threats are real. ID theft is real. Paypal’s disregard for your well-being is real. Having your life turned upside down by these mountebank miscreants is very real. Your life can be ruined, literally, in milliseconds. I know of no other online payment services with the level and the frequency of serious issues such as Paypal.
To cut to the quick, just close out your ebaY and PayPal accounts. Do whatever you need to to make sure they cannot access or withdraw funds from any of your bank or credit card accounts. Persuade others to do the same. It’s the only 100% sure fire way to protect yourselves from a very obvious danger.
When they ask why you want to close your accounts, tell them Cappnonymous sent you. ;p
