    So I ordered numbers 20 days ago from Seo and just like everyone else who recently bought from him, I haven't gotten my numbers. He said he was going to refund me if I didn't get them this week. It's Friday where I live, and I know he doesn't work the weekends, so I am assuming today is the end of that week in my opinion. He isn't responding to me on Skype, so I am going to look in to disputing my transaction on Paypal. About 70% of what I sent him, went off on my debit card that is hooked up to paypal, so I know I can always just deal with it from the bank if need be, but I'd like to see if I can get all 100% of what I sent to him. Anyone have any tricks to disputing a gift you send on paypal? I figured I'd play the "the stupid women card" and all should go over well?

    You said in the title "Disputing a gift on Paypal".

    Why would you rob Paypal (who we all are not thrilled with) of their cut in a business transaction?

    Doing that eliminates your opportunity to dispute a transaction... pay the 2.0+ % and you have some recourse.

    Be warned that disputing this through the bank will mostly get your paypal account terminated because they like to handle disputes in house.

    For future reference, don't send money as a gift. Just tack on the fees to cover your ass.

    Well my other options to send money, would have left me zero chance of attempting to recover. IE: Western Union or direct deposit to Wells Fargo. I already expected this was going to terminate my paypal account, but I am just si frustrated with SEO that it's almost worth it just to get my fuckin' money back.

    Don't waste your time and frustration. Learn from it and move on. The only person that your hurting is yourself.

    One bridge has already been burned. Don't burn the one you have with Paypal as well.

    Well you did not have to use the gift option to pay. Not sure why you thought that was a good idea. I never do business with anyone who requires that kind of thing, basically you are breaking paypals tos when you do that so why go there and risk your account. Why would I do that to save a few bucks? You not only risk your account but now you have no recourse when things go bad.

    If you really think you will never need your paypal account go ahead but I would be a fair amount of money that if you do a chargeback on a gift payment they will terminate your account. Much as hate to defend paypal they would be in the right for doing so, you paid using a gift payment which cheats them out of their cut for processing payments and then they get hit with a chargeback fee. I would terminate your account as well.

    I think I am going to cut my losses and hope Ultimate SEO gets his balls in a tragic meat grinding accident.

    I made that mistake once. Costed me $20 bucks but it taught me a good lesson. The knowledge I learned from that could have saved me hundreds or thousands, later on.
