quick question, not sure this is the place to pose it. I bought a lens off a guy in the B&S and he's stopped responding to PMs for the last week. Just checked his account and it's been locked. Does this mean that I need to go file a PayPal claim for merchandise not received?

+5.

I had someone, from FM, try to rip me off a week ago. Fortunately paypal took care of it. Just let them know what happened, and document everything.

This is the exact reason I won't deal with new people on the forum. I refuse to buy from someone with less than 10 feedbacks.

Always be careful. A few years ago I had someone with 100+'s attempt to rip me off. No, their account was not hijacked. PayPal saved me!

Yeah, I already submitted my request. This probably won't deter me too much from dealing with low feedback folks though, as everyone has to get started somewhere

Just from now on, no paying until people are ready to ship!

Always. I do not PayPal gift anything that's money that I would literally not be upset if something went wrong (e.g. when I bought a box last week or something)

Yeah, feedback doesn't always matter, it's just a good indication though.

Please don't ever rely on Paypal. Like EVER. just so you realize when they save you in these situations its often paypal taking an absolute loss as these people will often already have gotten the funds from paypal. You can find Paypal uninviting you in a hurry to continue using them if you have more than a 2% dispute rate.

It's great when it works but rest assured its not actual insurance just Paypal taking a loss.

I've never quite understood how they deal with that. I'm sure they at least file claims with banks, but since banks don't offer item protection I'd imagine they take a loss on some non-significant amount of transactions

I just had this and paypal was VERY quick to fix it for me. Its a shitty feeling when someone is scamming you or trying... Usually people bash paypal but in the 1 time i had to use them for a claim they saved my bacon. The guys account is now locked and i know he has 4-5 other transactions with people going on and they are all filing a claim against him or already have. We were talking via PM when he started acting fishy.

Paypal is great if you follow the rules which are listed on the web site. Many don't then bash it for not helping. Saved me from a big scam in the past.
