And to be clear, when you select F&F, there are no warnings about being scammed; they promote it as a transaction with no fees!! Who isn't going to look at that and say, well that probably makes more sense to use.

The warnings are on 'buyer protection' that you are supposed to read before using paypal to buy goods AND when you go to send money > it clearly states buyer protection on goods / services BUT DOES NOT say that on friends / family so you can read both before you select the option that you want.

If they were not a 'friend' or a close 'mate' then why would you use that option?

The clue is in the name FRIENDS and FAMILY.

Who will you sue?

If you sent a friends / family payment then you sent a GIFT of money to someone.

Same issue with me. But I have his picture, and I also confirmed the he had gf and kid. I messaged her and he is real, not fake identity. I don’t know if I should go to police or not.
