PayPal was hit with a proposed class action lawsuit on Tuesday over its treatment of charity donations.When charitable accounts are not set up correctly, PayPal continues to accept donations on their behalf, the suit alleges. Instead of notifying donors and nonprofits of the error, PayPal takes the money after six months and redirects it to another charity “without regard to the intention, beliefs, or desires of the donor,” the lawsuit claims. The class action status of the suit still needs to be certified by a judge.PayPal did not immediately respond for a request for comment.One plaintiff claims that of her $3,250 December donations to 13 different charities through PayPal, only a total of $100 was distributed between three charities of her choosing. The rest, the suit says, is being withheld by PayPal.
