no buyer has no protection, using paypal gift, you can only dispute with your bank/visa to get paypal to stop the money leaving your account

No buyer has no protection means every buyer has protection :p

If buyer accepts money after agreeing a deal with the intention of not sending goods it's fraud so you could reclaim money through small claims court a police if they can be bothered.

I wouldn't bother with that like most people wouldn't buying small priced items like I do (£5 - £20)

small claims court is horrendous and its £50 just to file the case I think.

If you do this you will just have pp chase you for the money with their debt collectors, and do remember pp protection off ebay is almost as useless too.

DID you pay by gift, that is very unusual that visa will chargeback, most banks won't as if you gift soemone money you have not payed for goods, you gifted them, and payapl sent the money as you requested.
It's definately NOT the norm at all, I am suprised you have not had a crappy email from pp yet, or maybe it's on it's way :lol:


my banks ace im with abbey, i called my bank first as soon as i found that it was fraud, they told me to contact pp, thne they told me to contact my bank, i spoke to my bank for a 2nd time , they said i would have to wait fo rth emoney to leave my accoint as it was in auth, called back 3rd as it left account visa refunded me money, currently investigating the matter also:thumbsup:


did pay via ppg
