@Tammy58 @Jackjj Your situation is clear cut. You ordered something, didn't received it > you can file a dispute on that transaction. Since the scammers aren't that stupid they will send you a $1 item just for the tracking code. This said, I did heard many stories that Paypal still did the refund (in some cases the $1 item had to be returned to the scammer too, Paypal refunded that money too, even though the scammers address is fake and they will never get it, or want it). In which case I believe the money comes from Paypal, not from the fraudsters, they withdraw the money daily (I guess). But I didn't order anything, I see a store (actually many) that are fraudulent, and want to try to report them without transaction. There is no obvious procedure for that. It's like: Me: There is a bank robbery on Citibank, Central Police: Thanks for calling, are you a customer with that bank? Me: No Police: Then how can we help you?

How to report a fraudulent store that uses Paypal? I didn't buy anything there, but I like to help to get those fraudsters removed. It's usually ads that pop up on Facebook etc Here is are examples: https://www.shopweo.com/20-volt-max-lithium-ion-cordless-combo-kit-14-tool https://www.zoneteed.com/20-volt-max-lithium-ion-cordless-combo-kit-14-tools Most are hosted by Shopify, but usually they use Paypal. I wonder if there any way to report them to Paypal? And I wonder how they get the money? Obviously the customer will file a dispute, even though the fraudster will send some crap just to have proof of delivery. But with some cases I followed mostly the customer will get the money back - but I doubt from the fraudsters. Is Paypal paying from their pockets?
