    Have been selling on eBay for a while now my feedback is 100% with 66 transactions.

    Yesterday i sold two phones money is in escrow.
    Today i sold 2 items..a suit and a playstation 3 and both times after the buyer checked out via eBay i have had the money available to me immediately in my PayPal available balance, buyer has not received items yet and not even tracking info added yet. Just checkout and then boom straight to my PayPal available to use and withdraw. On all of my previous transactions (various items) this money is always held in escrow until buyer recieves item and has left feedback. What the heck is going on? This is quite weird?!

    I see room for scammers here.

    Most likely your account has been selling for over 90 days and hence the funds are now released right away

    Congratulations! Your paypal holds have been removed

    There's no room for scamming anybody because you'll be shut down on eBay/PayPal and your buyers can just file PayPal disputes to win their money back. Definitely not worth it

    What if you cash out, close your bank account, and immediately flee the country? Yeah you're only going to make a few dollars after travel expenses, but being on the lamb the rest of your life is worth it.
