How can I protect myself when buying an e-ticket from a person I don't know?

New Community Member

Hello folks,


I am looking to buy tickets to a ballet from a user that I met on Reddit. These tickets are to a ballet in Italy later next week. The seller is asking me to send them money through Paypal. How do I protect myself during this transaction in case the tickets are fake or not delivered? Will I be protected by buyer's insurance?


Thanks in advance!

That depends on many factors all listed in Paypals buyer protection policy for you to read so you can risk assess your transactions.
