Has anyone had any dealing with GPAL?
I have having a very hard time getting my money out of them.

I used them for a couple deals, and to buy some grips a few months back, no issues. Matter of fact, got emails saying the funds were transferred within minutes of using them. What are they doing (or not doing)?

Auction Arms went to them exclusivly and have had a lot of problems. Seems they were slow delivering payments. It got to the point that AA posted a disclaimer that they had nothing to do with the problems but was trying to resolve them with GPal.

Ive read about quite a few problems with them lately, seems its the banks they deal with holding up transactions because firearms are involved

I have been trying since the day a member on here paid me for a gun (2 weeks) through Gpal to get money out of them. IT has been 2 weeks and counting. It isn't life or death for me, but some of the dealers/traders are really hurting.
I was going to buy another gun with the funds but, no online dealers are taking gpal anymore because they won't release the funds to the dealers like the contract says. ANyway it says 24/7 support which is BS. I stayed on hold for a total of 16 hours this week and last week.
Can't get a checking account set up to transfer the funds to or anything.
From what I can tell on other forums there are 95,000 trouble tickets out right now and they only have 30,000 registered users.
I don't know. They say they are now sending a check out, guess we will see. I have pretty much written that money off.
Calguns.com has a forum set up just for complaints on this company.
Just poor customer service, and they are still signing up unsuspecting customers.
There are some dealers that are owed thousands of dollars since around april and may that haven't been able to get their money yet.

Just read where one guy out in California is filing a fraud complaint with fbi after gpal told him he would have a check by last wednesday.

I bought a gun using them and it took 8 days and several emails on the part of the dealer to get them to free up the money for him to deposit into his bank. That is the only time I've used them and it was somewhat less than stellar.

Just an update.

I have tried to call GPAL for a month now. Still no answer. Still no money.

Guys You need to stay away from Gpal.

The part that makes it seem like fraud is they seem to have no problem taking money out of your account but getting money out is damn near impossible, at least for the last month anyway.

You know you could do better dealing with cash paying customers on the forum like selling me that beat up Single Six.
Seriously, I know that sucks bad having your money tied up with someone. Those guys are making interest on your money so they'll hold on to it as long as possible. Banks have a report that some of the higher ups see showing the overnight interest rates. Small amount to us but it adds up when they screw a bunch of people's money.

It seems they had more outflow than income so they were robbing Peter to pay Paul.

Yeah. You can believe that if you want to.
I have logged my calls and times to them.
Total I have been on hold for 21.8 hours.
They called me one time 13 days ago said they were sending a check overnight that day and nothing since then.
