Unauthorized activity is when someone broke in to your account to make a transaction, not for when paying a scammer. If you paid as goods and services, you get the option to file item not received dispute. If you used friends and family option, then PayPal buyer protection does not apply to friends and family payments. Scammers know this so they disappear on you. In that case, you’ll have to ask your card issuer or bank for help, if you were scammed. Even then, there’s no guarantees card issuer or bank will help since you basically sent a ‘gift’ payment.

Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
