Scam bitcoins HELP!

created the business account to be able to sell tickets to our PTO fundraiser a few years ago. I do not need the business account anymore and have now paid more fees on someone sending me money than a personal account. How do I delete the business from my account? Labels

Hello @GabrielVento,


Welcome to the PayPal Community. Unfortunately, Friends & Family transactions do not have PayPal's Buyer Protection. I would recommend reaching out to your funding source to see what dispute options you may have available. For the future, here's a great article on Common scams and how to spot them.


Best wishes!
