Re: Item not as described

You have to sign up for the return shipping credit thing separately via PayPal. As long as you provide them with all the photos, receipts etc. they ask for within the time limits they are requesting then they will give you the money up to $30. I received that money fairly quickly in my PayPal account.

Re: Item not as described

In the end I accepted and got paid 75% of the original price and did not return the product which was probably worth about $2. What irritates me is that PP must have a long list of fake traders that they should instantly debar once this happens but they don’t. Secondly they should not expect buyers to pay for return mail and thirdly PP needs to have an easier way for buyers to contact them directly.

Well, 75% is better than nothing and you'd cut your losses. But in rpinciple the scammers still "won" in that they'd sold you a piece of junk at tremendous profit, and it was a forced sale. PP was supposed (in most buyers mind) to provide protection against these scams but obviously they don't.
