    Dodgy?

    Ive put my Samsung Q1 on ebay for £224.99 BIN auction and Someone has bought it and paid via paypal, But the person has 0 feedback and has been a member for 3 months? Now paypal are holding the fee's (the b******s) And i feel that this is very dodgy?

    something like happened to me. I sold some tickets, get in contact with pp and explain the situation. I sent the tickets and funds came to me. But i know what you mean, you cant be to careful.

    Oh, my bad, well same goes for any high value item I think.

    in the next day or so, paypal will release or reject the funds. if they release them, you are covered. So just send it, and make sure you have tracking and proofs etc.

    ebay members have to start somewhere!

    make sure the users address is verified on paypal, VERY IMPORTANT!

    some good advice above /\
    should be fine mate

    I had this when i sold and xbox 360 on ebay, i to was very weary about sending the item, but as has been said above paypal just hold the feels to protect both buyer and seller.

    You should be fine, just send the parcel so its traceable..

    Hmm never heard of that before...

    make sure you get signed for postage ,, take pics of it b4 u send it ,, also in your ebay settings you could of banned users with less than 2 feedback or something like that,, you can also ban overseas buyers and things like that.

    or if you rnot happy refund him / her their money and re list it
