~mad as hell: was given that number to contact customer service for PP Extras account. After getting past the automaton I got a live person who told me that was handled by another department. She transfered me and I GOT CUT OFF! This is typical of PAYPAL. I don't know why anyone uses them. I have closed one account and am trying to close my PP Extras account which I have paid in full after requesting (by mail! that they send me a statement.
