Hello so I was scammed. After I notified the seller that I made the payment the seller started acting strange and I realized it was a scam. I attempted to cancel the payment but my account was locked. The. PayPal sent me a text saying the transaction was suspicious and asking if I authorized it. I said no because I did not want the money to go to the scammer. I got an email saying the payment was reversed. Then when I checked PayPal again it showed me getting a pending refund. I thought cool this is over. Then I got another email starting my case was denied as this was not a security breach. As in someone did not use my account and that my refund is denied. I looked on PayPal and my refund is still pending. And everything I read says that refunds are initiated by buyers. There was no money taken from my account yet as it is Sunday. Has anyone else had experience with this? Will both transactions just be canceled? Will they be take my money then issue the refund back? Or will the money be taken and I’ll have to dispute again? Will I need anything if I dispute?
