I am trying to buy shoes through a seller on Twitter. I've never done this before, and he is suggesting that I send him money though the 'send friend of family' option instead of 'buying goods or services' option to avoid a 3 week pending wait. Can I dispute a case and potentially get my money back if the item is fake or doesn't arrive? I'm only hesitating because I'd like to be under the buyers protection that PayPal offers.
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
ok so you know how it goes
got scammed by russian buyer
sent 2 expensive graphic cards there with tracking and all
buyer says he didnt get it
then when tracking shows delivery he switches to ''not as described''
pay pal awarded return of the stuff he allegedly never got at the first place
what a joke!!!
he sends me box full of news paper-parcel got stopped at the Post in my country and got sent back immediately because they knew its a scam ( russians are doing it for so long now everyone knows it so now they open ALL parcels from russia )-custom declaration this guy filled says ''2 graphic cards''....BUT get this pay pal says its my fault I did not accept empty box and gives back refund to is scammer ...oh I got mail from post office in my country saying that parcel was sent back because it contained russina newspapers so got sent back because of the custom offence of filling fake custom declaration..of course pay pal still sided with scammer and I lost money ...
