I paid my membership fee by using a credit card which put me into PayPal to process the payment. I had never used PayPal before. After I processed my payment I checked into the accounts section of PayPal to see what it was all about. I was surprised to find that in addition to my COPA payment two other transactions appeared transferring money to me for a purported sale on eBay. I have never bought or sold anything on eBay. I sent an message to PayPal and to the person who had sent the payment. She responded by saying that PayPal had said that I should pay her because they couldn’t straighten it out any other way! Sounds phony to me. I have not heard from PayPal directly. If you used PayPal to pay your dues I suggest you go back in and check your account to see if there are any other transactions. You should have received a email from them that shows you how to log in.
Even though I have received an email from COPA saying that I have been accepted as a member my PayPal account shows that my payment to COPA is “unclaimed”. I could still cancel it. Do you think they would kick me out if I canceled it?
