I am wondering something, as someone who got ripped off in the opposite direction. I was trying to make a purchase of bitcoin in early July, when surprise surprise the person decided not to send me the coin. I made all the calls befopre hand explaining what bitcoin was to the customer service people to check if I was covered under buyer protection as it was the only way I would make the transaction, and pretty much was told I am fine as long as it wasn't a gaming coin, which they seemed to have trouble understanding. After 2 days in the resolution center, and copies of my entire conversation with the seller, paypal closed the case and let the seller keep the funds. My only saving grace and I hope it plays out this way is that I used my credit card for the bulk of this purchase and they are hopefully going to cover it under my purchase protection plan. So do they just side with whoever rips of who, it seems you sellers were left out to dry, and me as a buyer was left unprotected.
