Someone want my papal details to send a large amount, somebody will come and pick selling item later.IS it safe???? How long it will take to receive money in my bank account
hi, the same thing happened to me. i think it's a fraud. if they say they have a "personal agent that will pick up the item for you" that's really weird, i sent a mail back saying" i think this is a fraud, if true don't get back to me, unless you're a real buyer", and i haven't recieved anything since... This is my oppinion, but im really looking forward for a proffessional to answer this question too
Hi there anadan,
You are correct- this is not safe.
As a seller you need to cover yourself under PayPal's seller protection guidelines, one of the main criteria is that you have a tracking number/receipt for postage of the item. Allowing collection of items is not safe.
Please forward any emails you are unsure of to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for posting!

I have someone who wants to pay lg amount of money for 5th wheel and then send a delivery service to pick it up with them only seeing it in pics on craigslist. They want my paypal account email address to put the money in. Is there a way this could be a scam? How long after money is in paypal should we wait to let then pick it up
