Someone has payed via paypal for a leeds festival ticket of me. they paid via paypal and are coming to collect now. The thing is the buyer said he has paid on his sisters ex boyfriends paypal. Does this sound dodgy to you?? Its got me thinking that hes either not asked permission and paypal are going to do me for this! Any advice for me?

im going to record the whole thing on my laptop aswell. (yes im that unsure about this guy) Ill even upload it when hes gone haha
[mod]#2
DON'T GIVE HIM THE TICKET

When he gets home he can put a claim in and you have no proof of delivery and he will be refunded. Tell him cash only or nothing.
#3
If you hand it to him it will be "Untrackable" so he could claim back via Paypal saying you never sent it....

EDIT - sorry, overlapped with Sy

True...Refund him via PP and ask for cash!! Make sure someone is with you too!!
#5
ive just been on the phone and asked him go get some i.d so i can take pictures of this...
Would this not be any good?
#6
or transfer the money straight out ur paypal account , paypal cant take it back out of ur bank account !!! it will take a few days for any dispute to happen, and then it will be safely in ur bank. and i use my friends sisters acc sometimes and im not dodgy!!

If he's willing to bring cash then you could refund the Paypal transaction in front of him if you've meeting at your house...then everybody's covered

post an envelope to the address on the paypal recorded delivery. Or phone the person on the paypal invoice and ask them if its kosha.
#10
i dont have a number from the actual person that the moneys come from and paypal wont tell me it....
I really have to get rid of this ticket tonight tho as the fest is tomoz and feel like this is my only chance...

The guy said he wont be able get cash unfortunately

Then I wish you well & hope it's kosher because if you get stung after these warnings I wouldn't be expecting much sympathy......
#12

If so i could give the picture and stuff to police would this not help!!!
Never ever ever ever ever again am i going to try to make money of tickets!!!!

Paypal will accept a Royal Mail (or courier?) tracking number as "proof" of sending....ANY other arrangement (no matter how much proof you provide) WILL leave you open to the buyer saying they never recieved & you loosing this money from your account......
#14
Basically he's paying from someone elses account, although why he felt the need to tell you it was his sisters ex boyfriends is beyond me? If he was pulling a fast one surely he wouldnt have the need to tell you this, personally id say avoid like the plague, but if this was your one and only chance to get rid of them then maybe taking a gamble at being fleeced id better than losing out on £xxxx
#15
I guess the bottom line is that if you're not gonna use the ticket(s) & can't get shot elsewhere then you've nothing to loose...it might be legit & you get the Paypal, but more than likely they'll claim & you won't get the money, same as if you couldn't sell the ticket & it got wasted.....
#16
As long as you put in a withdrawal straight away, you should be OK, however, i'm not as convinced as Charlie that this IS a scam, just a bit messy
#17
ill photocopy the receipt he has signed and send this recorded delivery to the sender (details from the licence he brings and then ill put the put the tracking code threw to paypal???
#18
Your stuffed if you give him the ticket and he claims off paypal YOu'll lose not only the money but also the tickets

I sold something a couple of years ago for over £300, I sent it special delivery to the buyers registered paypal address, sent them proof of postage and pictures of what was in the box as well as I am always over cautious, and even sent them a picture of the stuff IN the box before it was sealed..
What happened? I lost the items and the money
the buyer claimed off paypal said the item was damaged
royal mail said it wasnt interfered with and arrived first thing next morning, even with all the evidence paypal refunded him in full, AND I never got the item back
it was a brand new mobile phone pda type

Basically paypal dont give a s*it, as long as they are making money from commision, they just refund whoever complains no matter what happens.
#19
I'd listen to the warnings and accept cash only.

End of the day its your call and you will have no-one else to blame if it all goes wrong.
#20
be interesting to see how this pans out
#21
They picked up the tickets and guess who the ended up bringing with themmm???
The account holder! Made sure from his passport and the account and it was the person.
I worry to much!
#22
No says in paypal TOS they CAN take money from your bank account.
BTW OP i take it we talking ebay selling??
#23

Plus ive got a video all there details from there chip and pin passport. one of there driving liecence numbers. and there address from a bank statement.

Great - so, you're going to have the sister's ex-boyfriend filing a Paypal dispute, and proof that you gave the tickets to some random stranger. This might be good for the police faud investigation, which might see you charged as accessory to fraud, but not much good for Paypal.

Avoid. Seriously.
#25
i have the sisters ex boyfriends details and him on the video also i have his driving licence number
#26
If this does start ill sell my story to sum magazine saying its affected my life and i cant trust anyone!!
Maybe then ill be able get my money back!
Anyway im going bed now.
ill be back on her tomoz and let you know what time he made a claim to paypal hahah
#27
Right, glad you are happy with the outcome, ive got a weekend of Leeds festival to enjoy starting tomorrow am, then when I get back time to claim INR and get my money back, that will cover my beer money nicely see ya later sucka :whistling:




Seriously good luck with the outcome however it pans out!
#28
if your alarm bells are ringing so loudly, usually they are right on the money!
#29
I say ambush him at the door and kill him. Make sure you dispose of the body carefully and burn your clothes afterwards. Don't respond to any email enquiries from either eBay or PayPal, and don't open the door to the police if they call. In the long run, you'll appreciate how good this advice really is. Good luck, and please report back on how it all goes. Mum's the word :thumbsup:

i sent an ipod that was paid for with payapal recorded delivery, he said it never got there, the post office said that it was probably pushed through the door unsigned for, paypal couldnt care less, the gave him the money back but i didnt have all of it in my paypal account, so to this date i am - 95 in my paypal which means i cant use it but they cant take it out of my bank account.

Sorry mate - you are talking to the police - paypal has nothing to do with us.

Sorry mate - you are talking to the police - murder has nothing to do with us.

Sorry mate - you are talking to the police - we dont investigate anything anymore as it generates bad crime figures.

Sorry mate - you are talking to the police - we are pointing this gun at your head as you look Brazilian and that;s in the middle east.
