How to get a Refund on PayPal if Scammed?

Post by JamesMiller »

I paid using Friends and Family option for an item that I purchased online but the seller never sent it. Later, I contacted PayPal and they said that it seemed like a scam but they can not do anything about it. Even after knowing that some people are misusing PayPal to cheat innocent and gullible people, PayPal won't take any step against them. Way to go PayPal..Way to go..!!!

Hello JamesMiller,

Paypal won't be able to do anything about it, as the payment was done using the Friends and Family option. This option is only be used en you're sending funds to friends and family. This is why there is no processing fee, and therefore no Buyer protection for Paypal to help you get your money back.
