    This is why you should wait until those things have been approved by a mod or admin. HaRRo requested a copy, but haven't heard anything from either yet...

    At least you have some protection ..I am sure paypal will give you your $10.00 back if you complain .
    Hopefully you didnt send via e-gold or something.

    Just don't tell Paypal what it was that you were trying to buy ;)

    LOL

    Him: Some guy ripped me off $10.
    Paypal: What were you trying to buy?
    Him: He would tell me how to double my Paypal money.
    Paypal: Uhhhh *deletes account*

    Seems like the way to double your Paypal money is make a post saying you can double your money and ask for $10. He probably had $10 in his account, and now he has $20.:p

    Yep, the old scam "send me $1 and I will show you how to make $2".

    Well if you do end up losing your money khmntcpr8, turn it into a positive. You have proven to yourself that people will part with their money whenever they hear a pitch that appeals to them...even if they know in their heart that it sounds too good to be true. Along the lines of what essential_clix said, be patient and search the forum for advice before you spend your money on anything.

    If he empties his account then paypal won't be able to get their funds back and it means they won't be able to return it to you. You have next to no protection using paypal if you are dealing with a scammer. Hopefully it didn't happen to you.

    I got it and as ive been told the method it seems real enough, he said it was found by accident and seems all very legit, as i dont use paypal, i guess i cant try it so give it a go, why not its only $10 it looks to me like it would work as i have had similiar in the past
