Thought I would give you an update on my eHarmony and PayPal nightmare (Missed it the first time? No worries: get the scoop by clicking here).
(You can also find my happy-happy post about how I have resumed my relationship with PayPal here.)
|eHarm (emphasis on harm)|
eHarmony (hereafter to be known as, "eHarm") never did respond to my email inquiry. Those 10 days they had to respond are long gone. I was not even given the courtesy of a form letter denial.
Oh, they still expect to be paid. I will probably be hounded by creditors before long. Who knows what it will do to my credit rating. But since I pay cash for everything, I am not one bit worried about a credit rating.
Thankfully, that account was $0, so no payment was made. I have no idea what happens should I ever accrue a PayPal balance. PayPal did come through with their promise of a $25 "bonus" for my troubles. Bonus? Yeah, okay, we'll use their terminology.
It has been much harder to give up on PayPal. I have not made any purchases through them since "the incident," but shopping online has been greatly hampered by not using PayPal. I am still of two minds about ever using them again, knowing their "hands off" policy and disinterest in educating their workers on how PayPal actually works.
How do I find the joy in this situation? Hmmm . . . joy . . . I cannot find joy in this situation unless it is to say that at least eHarm is a service I can do without. And I do have a blog with a few readers left with which to share my experience and warn the unsuspecting.
Counting it all joy,
