Lawyer Who Says He Was Stiffed by Client Sues PayPal
By: Ina Steiner
Some people become dissatisfied with how PayPal handles disputes between buyers and sellers, but leave it to a legal professional to take his beef with the company to court.
Law.com's The Recorder wrote about a lawsuit filed by paralegal Todd White against PayPal alleging "claims of breach of contract, fraud and unlawful business practices" after his client reportedly cancelled payment of their attorney fee - and noting he was also hit by PayPal's $20 chargeback fee.
The Recorder reported White took issue with PayPal's practice of not providing the same financial protections to providers of services and digital goods as sellers of physical goods on the platform.
Sellers are well familiar with PayPal policies and practices; it will be interesting to see if this case has legs.
