Someone on ebay won 3 fifa games off of me for around £8, i sent the item out the same day.
the day after (if i remember rightly ...) PAYPAL say they are holding the amount , they told me this after i i sent it, and now today they have given him the money back . so he now has the games and the money.

And in the email paypal says its for my protection,

dont really understand what you mean, if paypal have given him a refund then there isnt mch you can do! Do you have the games back?!

Am i stupid if i say i haven't a clue what your on about!!?

if you posted them out you should have either got a certificate of proof of posting or sent them recorded delivery. if paypal have refunded the bidder their money back they should have posted the games back to you first.

if they are saying they never arrived and you have no proof you sent etc then only thing you can do is learn for next time! and chase royal mail for missing games

I listing something last night (electrical) & when I did it came up with a warning that said something along the lines of "paypal may hold your money until positive feedback has been received or 21 days has past without any dispute being raised" I ltook this to mean that I may not be able to withdraw the money straight away until I had received feedback & typical ebay, paypal was the only payment option allowed.

how long ago did you sell your games & did the buyer take out a dispute with you??

28th of march it was won, and he didnt dispute paypal held it for investigation, they sent me an email wanting to know whats it was for, it has been tracked in ebay so i told them what it was for and the item code, and now they have refunded him. very wierd

The member had 100% feedback and is no longer a member of ebay. ARGHHH

yeh if this was the case i would admit my error, but it isnt

just contact him, there are a lot of honest people on ebay too, I had this problem and paid someone twice, I just contacted them and they put the money back into my pay pal account

Just realised you said no longer a member of ebay- well you could write to him requesting payment for goods delivered

exactly the same thing happened to me and a buyer on here. dub1 bought something from me then paypal froze his account to do security checks then refunded the money back to him! at least he was nice enough to send the money back to me by bank transfer so paypal didnt get any more fees out of us! this is why i wish people would stop using paypal, they are diabolical!

If the buyer isn't honest enough to give you the money phone paypal as it is their fault, if they were going to refund the payment for wahtever reason they should have done it straightaway or not have accepted the payment so they should refund you if you got proof of postage that is
