Paypal/Ebay Chargeback

4 replies
Found 29th Apr 2007
Ok, basically over 3 months ago I sold a Nokia 6230i boxed on Ebay for £85.

The buyer had little feedback (I think 2 or so at the time) so I waited 2 weeks before sending it out to make sure I wasn't being conned or anything.

Anyway, everything has gone well with the transaction and after a week or so he left me feedback saying: "item as describe ,,,,great+"

He is now no longer a registered user and I got an email from Paypal stating that he has initiated a chargeback. I have a feedback rating of 106 @ 100% but the thing is, because so long has passed I threw the tracking card out.

I have pictures of the phone and everything but my Paypal is now -£86, I think this is an absolute disgrace that they can do this to me.

What can I do?

Any help would be much appreciated.


What's the item number?

Forget it, I've found it.

OK, Why did you accept Paypal when in your description you say you don't?
Look in your Paypal account for this transaction and see if you had 'Seller Protection'.
Did you send it to a Confirmed Address?
Was the buyers account Verified?
Has it been 90 days? ( I could work it out but I don't know what date you sent it) If you waited more than 7 days after receiving payment before sending it you have lost seller protection.

What is the reason for the Chargeback????

They bought a lot of phones!! Looks like you got scammed

A similar thing happened to me i had someone purchase a item and they received it and everything was fine then nearly a year later !!! paypal took the money out of my account to say it was brought with unauthorised funds and that unless i could provide all relavant info .i had lost the money needless to say a year later i had no info so lost money and had to put it down to experience .
