Hi there, I've got a quick question. Someone who I'm friends with on the gaming platform Steam has sent me just over £2000. These payments were made in installments of 500 and 350 Euros. (Converted to GBP of course) The purpose of the payments was for me to purchase a high-value virtual item in the game Team Fortress 2. How well am I protected and how do I prove to PayPal (should a dispute open) that the money was a donation with no expectation of a physical/virtual item in return? Things that have popped into my head: Get the Steam friend to confirm the reason for the payments in a Steam chat window (with timestamps) Reverse the payments (refund) and ask them to send it with their reasoning in the 'Notes' field. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Ryan. P.S. I've got to verify my card because of the large transactions, expected to take about a day to complete.
