PayPal just glitched, fixing it now
Oh, I don't believe this. I just checked my email and I have two from PayPal saying my donation to dominic-deegan.com was refused because my bank account is closed. I immediately pulled out all of my bank information and checked it out on paypal.com which checked out to be correct. I then looked at the transaction again and it went to my old bank account, which isn't even listed in my paypal account anymore. I'm now waiting on the phone to speak to a representative concerning this because the donation was canceled but I already got the donation wallpaper from Mookie. I'll fire off an email to him as soon as I post this.

[UPDATE: I just got off the phone with PayPal and fired off an email to Mookie to let him know what's going on. PayPal isn't really going to do anything because, despite the fact my old bank account doesn't show on my end, they can't remove it. According to them, I just have to make sure my transfers go through the right sources (I was sure my donation went through the right source...). I've re-sent my donation as they asked me to make another transfer to make sure it went through the right account. The girl I talked to on the phone sounded like quite a ditz, and towards the end of the conversation it sounded like she was trying to be harder to hear since what she was saying was mostly bull.]

My experience with PayPal so far has been, "We don't do anything."

I can understand why they wouldn't remove the bank account themselves, though. They probably don't want to give any of their employees the ability to screw over customers, or for a fake user to call in and cancel someone's account. (But then I have to ask, what good is the employee supposed to do if they can't do anything?)

It would've been nice if they resent the donation for me, but there's no reason I couldn't do it again since the originally one was cancelled anyway.
