I sold an item for £600. The buyer paid via paypal and collected. Paypal have now blocked the transaction as they believe the account was not being used by it's real owner. Now the buyer (possible fraudster) is not responding to e-mails and the mobile phone they used is switched off.
Paypal have the money on hold for 10 days but if the buyer does not demonstrate they are the account holder in this period paypal will send the money back. I'll have lost the item and paypal have said they will not protect me as it was collected by hand so I can't prove postage.
I thought I had done everything you are meant to do (don't send item before paypal is cleared). I have a long paypal history, and I feel completely dumped.
Is there anything I can do to get my money back here?
