An Ebay Scam?

  kjrider 10:44 11 Sep 2010

I had an item on Ebay with a 'buy it now' price, for £50 plus.

It was bought by someone who emailed me to say he wanted it ASAP.

I packed it up and was ready to take it to the Post office, when I decided to check my Paypal account.
I found the transaction had been cancelled and the money sent back to the buyer!

I was not contacted by the buyer, Ebay or Paypal, and a week later I am still awaiting to hear from them, after emailing them.

If I had not checked my paypal account, I would have lost out. I did not realise that you could cancel Paypal transactions.

This is a known issue with Paypal and not the customer, happened to me and my son a couple of weeks ago.
You might need to speak to Paypal regarding this issue but my sons account sorted itself out after a few days...
