Hi community! On date of 11.04.2021 I sent $235 as good and services payment. After payment seller changed his mind and refunded my money. But highly I suspect this person was a scammer. More than 15 days have passed but there is no refund on my bank or paypal balance. It is possible to scam this way? If PayPal says refund completed that means really refund completed or is there anyway to manipulate the system ? Thanks in advance
If you funded the original Paypal payment to the seller from your bank account or a card then once marked refunded/completed it will automatically go back to that bank account or card. Normally it can take a few days up to a week to go back to a bank account and a bit longer for a card, Paypal say allow 30 days for a card (1 billing cycle) but its rarely that long. (Can vary according to country though).
