Re: Fraudsters



Scam has been ongoing for at least 15 years, sorry you got caught out. Unfortunately as none of the transaction was done using Paypals site then nothing that they can do.

You were scammed by fake Paypal emails from a scammer with a hijacked or throwaway email address using an internet cafe probably somewhere in Africa.

Paypal NEVER tell you to send an item before the payment is showing in your paypal account.
Paypal do not tell you to send trackable, they advise it for selling protection but it is not compulsory.

Advice is voluntary.
Kudos / Solution appreciated.
I do not work for Paypal.
