Title: I need advice please
Post by: DrRae on October 09, 2017, 07:30:23 PM
I found a laptop at discountssuperstore.com $140 less than Best Buy.  I paid with my debit card and it was declined.  There's no reason for it to be declined.  The company sent a message suggesting paying by PayPal.  Instead I paid with a credit card.  It was also declined and it shouldn't have been.  Again the company suggested I pay with PayPal.  Does this seem scammy to anyone else?

I don't think so.. Try using PayPal as suggested. If anything goes wrong, PayPal will refund you as soon as you make complaints.

It's quite possible that your bank is declining the transaction because payment is going to a foreign company or that something else looks suspicious to them. Your post is so old that I'm sure the matter has been resolved by now, but for the benefit of others reading this, I would recommend contacting your bank to find out the specific reason.  If you feel there is no reason for concern you can tell them to approve the charge, but they might do so only at your risk.
