Discussion: eBay/Paypal Scammers and Bogus Transactions

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
I'm ineligible for protection policy and the address is unconfirmed. But the shipping is to Adelphi University, Garden City New York, NY. And because I go to a private academy myself, I understand that its hard for dorm/boarding students to use eBay...

Any suggestions?

Sounds like it's a risk you may have to take. I've often had to ship to an unconfirmed address but I strictly reserve that for fellow HF members. You know the risk involved so I recommend having they pay via M.O. or cashiers check, better safe than sorry.

they already payed, and it listed the payment type as instant...so i'm guessing its a credit card..


edit: i have a fake pair of diesels in a huge size, should i send him those?

Tell him that you can't send it an unconfirmed address and have him confirm it with his bank or Credit co...then send it there. It'll probably be his parents home but it's better than sending it having it get lost and then you the seller getting screwed.

Yeah, it's not hard to get your address confirmed. It will take a couple of days because you will (or should) wait until it's confirmed before you ship, but it's much more worth it to do that than to get scammed. Or you could always refund him and have him pay you with a money order or whatever.

Why would you send him big fake diesels? I'm confused.

who cares if its unconfirmed

If a seller send to unconfirmed address PAYPAL will not protect seller in case of lost or misplace shipment and will side with the buyer.

notfrostyjosh: that girl who sent her 1200 bag to an unconfirmed address cared.

Can't you get USPS to get a signature upon delivery?

Good Lord, how do people not get a sense of humor?

Ask them to confirm, if they can't add signature confirmation/insurance.

Or if you're really paranoid about it, return their money and relist for additional fees.

Or just send it and lend yourself to be called an idiot like I was.

Thats right! Ship it out w/ out insurance and tracking! We don't need no seller protection!

Although in my case and I would imagine that you are in the same position using expanded seller protection and do not need to worry about unconfirmed addresses ... so yes this is true for us who cares about unconfirmed addresses! As long as the tracking says delivered we are covered.

However for a normal seller who does not have extended seller protection I would recommend shipping to confirmed addresses or running your own risk management --- basically don't ship out more then you can afford to lose.

Ah, not caring about unconfirmed does not imply that he doesn't ship w/o insurance and tracking tho.
post #20 of 42
Don't worry, I've adhered to your shipping rules tho.

I never said he did ship with out it. I was just going on a general rant about this topic since so many sellers ship w/ out paying attention to protecting themselves and then bitch later when things go wrong for them.

Also tracking and insurance will not help if the buyer does a chargeback for unauthorized use if he ships to an unconfirmed address.

Ahh, it's all ebay getting rich in the long run anyway. LOL just playin'. *couwalmartugh*

warning: this is expletive laden for no reason. ill try to address this in order.

look retards. paypal isnt going to do shit if your package is lost. they dont give a fuck. you could send it with every fucking add on gimmick they (usps dhl ups etc) have. add it all who gives a fuck. delivery confirmation, signature, return delivery slip, insurance, certified. you could add all this shit and send something to the president (who confirmed his address through the mail) and if it gets lost paypal isnt going to do anything. paypal has nothing to do with reimbursement for lost packages.

what i think youre arguing here (WORTHLESSLY (if thats a word)) is "what if the item shows up online as being received but the buyer says they didnt get it!!!!!" confirmed or unconfirmed doesnt fucking matter. youll win the paypal dispute if it shows up as delivered in the area code of the buyers address as listed in the payment. this probably isnt going to happen anyway. out of 15,000 transactions i think its happened 2 or 3 times and i had no problem with the paypal dispute. people usually realize "oh hehe i did receive it sorry im a stupid fucking asshole ill leave great feedback right now!"

linuxchild you dick brain cock face fucker move to the fucking ass philippines and confirm an address there you cock face. imfuckingpossible.

if you get a credit card chargeback youre fucked no matter where you shipped the item 8/10 times probably. actually being covered by paypal to the point that they will give you your money back is really narrow. ive probably been covered to the point of having my money returned (CTTPOHMR) and actually had to use it 3 times out of 15,000. this is a low percentage. Paypal doesnt like to give out money for free so to be CTTPOHMR or in your case CTTPOFYMR (your) is pretty difficult.

hope this helps.

+1 expletive-laden post made me laugh...out loud even.
