Paypal At It Again

Why is it if I pay for something with my CC through Paypal, the money is INSTANTLY removed from my card – BUT if I am getting a refund Paypal claim it can take up to thirty days (or so their website says) to put the money back?

What happened to “I’ll buy that, here’s your money – oops refund required, here’s you item, and thank you for giving the money back IMMEDIATELY?” I’ll tell you what happened, the longer Paypal hold your money, the more they make in interest, that’s what’s happened.

If I ran a business like that, I’d get my arse kicked by whoever in the government kicks arse nowadays – but if Paypal do it then they turn a blind eye.
