Re: PayPal assisting doxxers

PayPal provides this information to sellers so they can process shipping goods, obviously no doubt this is a recurring issue with `Doxxers` as I have had a lot of people attempt to use this against me as well, however I am not sure if PayPal is obliged to secure this information when you purchase a good, on the other hand you can specify not too send this information.

I do not for a minute believe PayPal "allows" it. You can buy a gun but what you do with it is on you, right? Do you want PayPal ask people if they are going to use PayPal services to doxx people before signing up? And of course people are going to lie. lol

 

If you know who is doing it, report the accounts or websites.

 

Consumer fraud warning

We’re always looking for ways to help keep you even more secure. So stay on the lookout for some of these common scams:

  • Spoofing: a scammer sends forged or faked electronic documents or emails falsely claiming to be PayPal or coming from PayPal but asks you to send money outside your PayPal account.
  • Relative in Need: a scammer impersonates a family member (commonly grandchildren) and claims there is an emergency requiring you to send money.
  • Lottery or Prize: a scammer informs you that you’ve won a lottery or prize and must send money in order to claim it.
  • Debt Collection: a scammer impersonates a debt collector and induces you to send money using threats or intimidation.
  • Employment Related: a scammer instructs you to send money in connection with a fraudulent offer of employment.

Always use common sense when sending money. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Only send money for yourself and not for others. Remember that if you don’t send the payment through your PayPal account, you’re not covered by PayPal Purchase Protection. Please let us know immediately if you believe someone is trying to scam or defraud you by contacting us.
