$75 Richer! (Sort Of)

Today was a pretty good day. It was a beautiful day out. Not too hot, no real humidity, & a very nice breeze. I’m pretty sure today was one of the best days of summer so far. Not only was it a beautiful day, I ended up $75 richer. How, you ask? Well about a month ago, I had bid on an item on Ebay. Unfortunately, the seller was an evil person out to rob me of my money. He/she never had an intention of sending me the item. After I won the bid & sent my payment, I received an email from PayPal telling me I shouldn’t finish the sale… Too Late! The money was already gone. The seller had deleted the auction & close his/her account. I was very angry. I work hard for my money & how dare this person steal it! So I filed a complaint with PayPal. I had to wait 10 days while they tried to contact the seller before they’d get into an investigation. Of course the seller never answered & PayPal ruled in my favor, but from the letter I received made it sound like I was not getting my money back. So I decided to suck it up, except my losses, & move on. And that’s what I did, until today. Out of the blue, I decided to check my PayPal account – I hadn’t used it since- & bamb!! There it was, my $75 back in my account! Although it was my money to being with, I felt like I won the lottery or something. It was a really great surprise to see that money in my account. Now I can transfer it back to my bank & use the money to pay on my Citibank card. WooHoo!! Sometimes good things do happen to good people!! Now if only I could get a raise or win the lottery, I’d be in really good shape!

    Always good to get money when you weren’t expecting it. Even though it was your money to begin with – it’s nice to have it back. Good to know that paypal is so on top of stuff like this. A friend of mine had a similar experience, where the item she bought never arrived, and paypal put the money back in her account.
