Lost $280 to ebay/PayPal scammer
I sold a computer and the buyer wanted $120 back for a bad screen. I immediately gave him $280 back. He returned to me another computer that was a piece of crap, and Paypal gave him all of his money back. PayPal would not help me even though I filed a police report.
According to Ebay, if you as a buyer open a ticket with paypal and not ebay, you will automatically get your money back leaving the seller with nothing. According to ebay, the buyer can send a brick back to the seller, and you have no recourse. Even though I filed a police report and provided Paypal with everything they asked for within 2 days, all I got back was “sorry can’t help you”.
Let this be good news for all buyers, always create ticket with Paypal and not ebay.
