Helping Ensure Safe Transactions
Most of the payments you receive will be from good, honest buyers.
PayPal wants to help you ensure safe transactions as much as possible.
You can often reduce your risk by paying special attention to payment details
and unusual requests.
* Watch for address inconsistencies:
It's fairly common for a buyer's shipping address to be different than his billing address.
In some cases, though, it could be a fraud indicator. For instance, a high-priced item that has a billing address in one country and a shipping address in another may be suspicious.
* Beware of unusual requests:
Unusual requests should put you on alert to suspicious activity. For example:
- Buyers who want rush shipment at any cost
- Buyers who send partial payments from different PayPal accounts
- Do not make payment in full

It's worth repeating, never click any links - there are some obvious signs which show it is a fake and you can always compare it with a genuine one.
