    Hi BHWer
    I just got scammed by this guys: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/304221-relents.html

    He opened thread and sell ebay account, i deal with him then send him 65$ then he blocked me on skype. That is not much but i want to alert people beware from this guy.

    The problem is I can't see the status of paypal account of this guy, so after i send payment i checked it in receipt and see that paypal is non-us and unverified. If I know that before sending payment, I think i wasn't get scammed.

    Does someone know how to see the status of paypal account (paypal to receive money) verified or not before sending payment???
    Thanks

    I was stupid, I sent it as personal payment and at Others type. When I was trying to open dispute Paypal said I couldn't do that because I sent payment at that type. :(

    The best thing you can do right now is to file a dispute and gather all the vital information you have against him.

    Thanks too for notifying the general public about such a nefarious activity.

    He has 5 posts, 4 of which are PayPal Scam related, I don't think your concern is whether people you are paying are verified or not, but rather use common sense about sending random people money. Theres plenty of members here who are more trustworthy and have a track record rather than 5 posts.

    Like Junkfood00 said, you can check his Paypal verification status by email address.

    e.g.
    Code:
    https://www.paypal.com/us/verified/pal=buyer@seller.com
