Hi, i was wanting to sell some stuff from paypal, but i have seen that there are many scams that people can make using paypal. One that caught my attention was that a buyer can pay you through paypal using his credit card, the money will go to your account, you send him the item and after that he can make a charge back and the funds will be remove from your account. What you all think about that? Is there a way i can trade with paypal and be safe of those scams?

The only solution is to make sure who you are dealing with. It is amazing how scammers can now be the buyer and not the seller. We generally think the scammer is the person who is selling the item.

The problem is that you limit a lot the number of persons you can sell stuff to. Look to what Daelin wrote, she just complained and they gave her money back, which means that they took the money out of the sellers account, i not talking bad about her, i just pointing out how easy it is for a buyer lie that they did not received the item and get their money back.

Paypal has a very good resolution section in their site. I had a problem some months ago. I bought a script and the guy didn't send it to me. I made a complaining and a few hours later the money was back in my account. I really don't know if it works that well with actual items and more money.
