So am I to understand PayPal knows this is the game of these scam thugs and continues to allow them on the platform to scam customers?
Hey, so I fell for this and lost my money to these thugs. It was my fault for trusting the integrity of PayPay and the merchants on the platform, but never again. I will check them out going forward provided I couldn't find the item with a company I trust. I will also use a credit card and if this crap happens again I know the card company will do a reverse of payment.
Perhaps but not much they can do about it. PayPal can close the accounts, but they'll come right back and open a new account, new site. All you can do is be vigilant. Hate to say it but PayPal still gets their cut no matter the outcome of transactions. On the other hand, there are users who get away with avoiding PayPal fees by using friends and family for goods and services transactions so...it evens out in the end. People scam each other in general. We do not live in a perfect world.
Yep, it seems that I've been stung the same. I paid out $14USD for the return of the item only because of the sense of satisfaction of the seller getting 0$. Now 2 weeks after confirmed delivery by the courier and PayPal has asked for the shipment number again, obviously because this scumbag seller is denying receipt. I should've realised that PayPal would take the easiest and cheapest option to "resolve" it.
Even FaceBook have relented and removed advertising for Orderplus, but I guess they're not out of pocket because of it.
A big "**bleep** YOU!" 🖕 to PayPal for continuing to support and be complicit in your customers being defrauded.
