So I inadvertently made a DONATION to a fundraiser that I learned was fraudulent. It is currently pending with Paypal, but Paypal will not give me a CANCEL option! HELP! I have contacted the fundraising site, but why is it so difficult for me to simply cancel the payment via Paypal??
You can only cancel a transaction if the email address you sent the payment to was non-existant ie a typo or spelling error.
Other than that it is pending until claimed by the seller and if it remains unclaimed it will time out at 30 days post payment.
If the item does not arrive or is described incorrectly then you can open a paypal dispute.
