Dont by any means think you can not be scammed on Paypal. Actually, it is probably the easiest way to scam you because you think you can trust paypal.

Do some google searching. You can be scammed out of your money or item in a instant. It is easy, simple, and the best part, it will be your trusted method that screws you.

Look into it. You will see it is not safe at all. I finally opened a Merchant Inc account and accept only credit card payments. Money is instant transfer and the cards are screened.

Paypal reacts to information and complaints given them. It is simple enough to contest a sale and have it settled in my favor and keep your money and item. It is very difficult to prove much of anything to paypal. Sometimes they actually do what they say. Sometimes the do not. When they dont, your screwed and I win. Bear in mind, it is not Paypal's idea to rip you off. Actually, they are not doing anything to you at all. The culprit would be me. They are merely reacting to information given them and as long as it is within terms of service it is hard for them to question much. The only way I would accept PP would be on a small item that can be sent certified mail return receipt requested. That is iron clad proof that the buyer received something. Oops the old catch 22 again. Yes Mr. Paypal, I did receive a box in the mail. The box was empty.

RIGHT! That's why all the BUYERS on here love PayPal but not the sellers. All these forum threads supporting PayPal fail to mention how badly a seller can get screwed by using PayPal. Parts swappers (or switchers, which ever you prefer) LOVE PayPal because they can get the parts they need to fix up their piece of crap radio and sell it... or use it. The parts swapper saves a bunch of money on parts and labor and you end up getting back a non-working and possibly beat up and ugly radio, and there's nothing you can do about it. PayPal doesn't give a s#*! about sellers. They have no protection. But all the pro-paypal buyers think that we should be OK with that. That's OK..... maybe after they get burned by parts swappers a few times they will rethink their position on that. I've been a victim of parts swapping in the past and PayPal basically said "sorry about your luck". Money order or nothing as far as I'm concerned.

Who are these "parts swappers"? I see many references but no names. How about doing us all a favor and identifying them!

Complain all you want about PayPal. I take it, have sold hundreds of items, and have never had a problem. When buying, it is PayPal or credit card or you can keep your stuff. Sending a usps money order, which is for all intent and purpose money, to someone you do not know is not too smart. Oh and by the way. I won't pay the fee unless I am the seller.

I too want to see one of these parts swappers identified. I never have.

After my experience with a scammer and using PayPal , I am in total agreement. PayPal work to help me and resinded my payment to said scammer and has, they say, have gone after him.
Hope they hang him out to dry!
