Lol you made it sound funny to me.If you are selling things of value, be sure to ship the item via UPS and require adult signature confirmation upon delivery. I sold a lady a laptop for $500 and she paid via PayPal. Payment cleared. Fine and dandy. After she received the item, payment was reversed and I'm out of my $500 because I didn't require signature confirmation, which PayPal requires in order to help me out. I have the woman's address and phone number and have tried calling numerous times for 2 months. Score one for the bad guy.
I guess it's a good time to warn everyone interested about paypal. In the last two weeks I have received two e-mails from paypal saying that I had just sent so and so $600 for a computer.
i think its a good idea really.this may sound dumb but since im scared to buy things online and do this paypal i was thinking about started a second checking account with another bank and only put about 200 bucks into it and just keep enough money in it to keep it open and put money into it when im going to buy something so i have enough for my transaction and if i sell i can use that.
is that being too parinoid or what?
