Post Paypal
Hello to Admin I have sent this maybe as a warning to buyers that a loophole exists with PayPal protection.

Just wondered if you have seen the latest PayPal scam it was reported that some one had
sold an item and accepted PayPal, the Buyer apparently then picked up the item from the sellers address and later reported to PayPal that he had not received the purchased item so PayPal refunded the payment and the seller finished up with nothing even though he had taken photos of the buyer leaving with the goods.In this case it was a Porsche bumper panel but could have easily been a Radio so I guess good old cash only on pickup may be the answer .
Kind Regards Tony G4SJI

This has been happening for many years.

I would't say it is a loophole, as both ebay and paypal state that you need proof of delivery for protection.
It is one of the reasons why there is no protection on cars.

More the same as sellers only accepting paypal using friends and family.

Seems more and more "family sellers" are using shpock, but we will only ever pay using paypal properly, we will add the fees on for a seller who does not want to accept paypal because of the fees.
