I THINK I AM BEING SCAMMED

Hey everyone

I think I got scammed today please help answer a few questions!
The buyer insisted I payed Family&Friends, but i refused. I payed him the normal way and he asked me to confirm reciept. I did, and now he says wait 24h for the payment to be complete? I feel like I am being scammed! Can I get the money back even if I confirmed the reciept if he does not deliver the item in 24h? 

Thank you

Well you have negated your buyer protection for non receipt of item as you have already confirmed that you have received it haven't you.

If you sent money as goods and services payment and not friends and family, you still have buyer protection, even if the funds were released to the seller before the full PayPal 21 hold which is what the "confirming" was for, not that you lose your buyer protection.  You have 180 days from date of payment to file a dispute.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
