tried to buy something off of ebay on buy it now & paid through paypal using my card & they refunded me saying their system had red flagged it so i used my bank account on paypal to try paying again (as i thought it may have been because the card i used first was a new one & i hadn't had it confirmed through paypal) & the same happened again now the seller has sent me a paypal money request through paypal is this dodgy? alarm bells are ringing here as afaik i won't be covered then by paypal guarantee & i know i had money to cover in my account? can anyone help? thanks

yes this is dodgy. keep your money while you still have it and buy from a reputable seller.

Sounds dodgy and I would not be happy sending the money via the money request.
However, if they are a new seller or haven;t sold anything recently it might be that the money has been put on hold until positive feedback or 21 days pass by and this might be why they are doing it. Nevertheless, they should be doing the payments through the eBay page and directly with paypal that way.

yes they are a new seller on ebay but are saying my payments have been red flagged when i know for sure i definitely had the money to pay? i have never had anyone say my payment has been flagged before & i have 657 feedback oO i have reported to ebay & hopefully they will sort this out

The problem is that Paypal put new seller's payments on hold until positive feedback has been left by the buyer or 21 days have passed, whichever is soonest. This is normal and a security thing to make sure that the seller does actually send the item and that the money is safe in case of any disputes.
The seller just probably sees that the money isn't in their account and thinks something is wrong - in their account it should have a green tick and 'ready to send' or something like that so you should pass this information onto the seller and if they are genuine they should follow the paypal directions, or maybe suggest they phone/contact paypal if they have concerns.

they have since told me that they have 4 ebay accounts & have never had a paypal payment held & that their paypal is verified supposedly to which i said i will contact paypal in the morning to find out what is going on. they then cancelled their request for paypal payment outside of ebay & then they requested a cancellation on ebay claiming they ran out of stock due to the payment problem!! i declined them doing this & will contact paypal in the morning & have already reported them to ebay & will phone ebay tomorrow too!! :x
