Sellers can't accept gift payment for goods when selling on sites advertising Paypal as a payment option. So, he violated terms of service. I'm also interested to know how you have information on who the IRS is auditing, who's on TSA's no-fly list, who the FBI is investigating, etc. since none of that is public information.

Because I initiated those actions myself. I suppose my friends and connections could have been lying to me. I doubt it tho. Besides the TSC listing those are pretty common repercussions so one doesn't need "friends" to get those results either.

As a US citizen, I would love to know how a person convinces our government agencies to act. Maybe you can convince our leaders to act decisively on the fiscal cliff issue. Since apparently you have that kind of pull. Your statements are simply incredulous, and your assertion that using a "gift" payment is just as safe (in terms of providing buyer protection) as regular Paypal is downright irresponsible and does a disservice to the FM community.

mitesh,

if BIF told you how he came by those data, he'd probably have to ***** you. Actually, pay enough money for on-line search engines to scour anybody's history, and, accurate or not, you can get what alleges itself to be information with respect to that history. Unless of course the individual doing the search has professional access to those data, but, if so, and if used in the furtherance of personal business, could well put the person in deep difficulty should the object of that search learn of it and decide to push forward.

Yeah, I'm a really terrible person!

BTW, they ARE acting decisively on the fiscal cliff issue! We just don't and won't, like it is all.

I doubt that, BIF.

The only possible chance you can get your money back is filing a dispute with your credit card company. I have all kinds of pull in the government as well. I know who's on the no fly lists and everything as well.

BenV,
That's not the only way.

I'm pretty much doubting anything BIF says, Anthony. Anyway, it's time to stop feeding this pig so it will stop sh**ting. I can smell it all the way from across the ocean.

So I'm NOT a really terrible person? Make up your mind!

How do you propose he becomes involved in a private transaction?

He's running a business - an internet user forum - which includes a Buy/Sell function, for which he charges a fee. He has the right - and I would say the obligation - to include in his business's Terms of Service a prohibition on scamming PayPal out their service fee.

The first paragraph of the board's Rules & Guidelines clearly states that we strongly discourage the use of "money order", "money owed payment" or "Paypal Gift" when making payments.
Paypal allows Gift payments as an option when goods are purchased and I can't possible ban this 100% as payment arrangements are usually finalized by PM. The only entity who could ban this type of transaction is Paypal itself.
