Depends on how you asked them. Judging by your posts here, obtusely and obstructively.
They won’t give it because if they get it wrong they are liable. By directing you to the website they are ensuring you get the official address.
Note also this address is also on all emails you get from PayPal
You're entitled to your opinion. Perhaps your time would be better spent not trolling online.
And your time would be better spent not taking PayPal to court - if you can't even find out the address to send the legal documents to then you won't be able to win a case against them either.
So a company has no obligation to verbally or in writing confirm their legal correspondence address when asked for it directly?
What if I had no Internet access and my only means of contacting them was via phone?
How did you use PayPal and sell on eBay if you had no internet would be what they would ask?
Pretty clean cut case if it was seen and heard by a judge. I've done everything I can to abide by PayPal t&cs.
My Internet was disconnected due to moving house?
No. They are under no obligation at all. The information is freely available.
You are now clutching at straws. Their address is on all the correspondence they send to you.
They haven't sent me any correspondence. I've received alerts/messages in my PayPal account its self but no emails or letters.
If I'm wrong, I'm sure you'll win.
Please come back and update us after the case is heard.
I'll keep you updated groganni.
Mobile internet? Free wi-fi? And they will know you are posting on here! LOL
Wow, I've had email correspondence every time from paypal when someone has paid me. Without fail.
Yet somehow you got paid but didn't get an email to tell you that you had been paid. What went wrong with your email account?
Not sure, perhaps my company filters it out with their firewall.
So not PayPal problem that you do not have any correspondence.
I think the bottom line on this one is that no one on here is a lawyer (at least in this field) and there is a myriad of legal advice sites and forums you could probably get better advice given where you are now.
My guess is someone in their complants department has shot off a boilerplate request to the CC that it is not in their jurisdiction, so I would not be too worried about them claiming costs if you cancel.. If you go to court and fail because your case was manifestly flawed, or because you used your company's email rather than your own which blocked their correspondence, then you may be on different ground. However, I have no idea how costs in the county court are awared, if they are at all.
My concern is that you were originally saying they were being obtuse in your requests of where to serve the papers... not that you hadn't received correspondence. I would find that difficult to believe, unless you were requesting it from a PayPal UK company, which has nothing to do with you and has no requirement to respond. I would expect they would have just sent you the link to their T&Cs... If they can prove they did this, you may be on shakey ground, too..
Also, I understand your frustration at not being given a reason for them withholding your money -to you it is a simple transaction, the buyer has the item and you are waiting for your cash. But for them to tell you why may constitute the offence of tipping you off that you are being investigated for a financial criminal offence (it could be AML, it could be sanctions breaches, it could be plain old fraud). The fact that they are withholding is sort of tipping off in its own right, but if they give you a reason, they may well be breaking the law, too.
Honestly, go to a forum that could give you more qualified legal advice. But I would consider dropping the case and waiting for the money...  ensuring you identify what your likely costs are going to be)
Why not go to a solicitor, rather than a legal forum? (There is a legal section on here as well as a few legal eagles within UKBF).
@LanceUk - You've given the longer version on what we've all said.
Sometimes it's best to keep it short and to the point.
