    Hello BHW,

    I am selling my website and I am scared of the buyer requesting a refund after he receives the website files. Is there anyway I can stop him from ever winning a dispute like this?

    Is there anything I can get him to agree to before hand, or anything I can get him to say before he buys it?

    If so, would skype be an appropriate source of 'evidence' for paypal, or would email be better?

    I apologize if this sounds stupid, I am new and want to start off with no disputes or possible problems.

    Thanks in advance :)

    No one can help you, only you know what you did. You scammed someone you were not supposed to.
    Seems like you scammed someone over Skype and now you are afraid what will happen - Paypal won't do anything, the police will knock to your door.

    Another question, how much accounts do you have on BHW? :)

    Usually when I sell a site I use escrow.com. It is a much safer way to do business.

    Take a look there and see if that makes any sense to you as a seller.

    Easy. Don't use Paypal. And why would someone want to do a dispute anyways? If the site is legitimate, you shouldn't have an issue. Sounds like WormH's suspicions are right.

    90% sure it's the same person. Don't help him.

    +1 to Boats's suggestion.

    Escrow used to be the #1 service to sell websites/domains before Flippa came out. You can still get scammed on Flippa though if you don't do your due diligence but if I were you, I'd never accept direct payments via Paypal for selling websites.

    You don't have to be worried about the dispute If the site you're selling is worth its price. Paypal has recently introduced a lot more restrictions on the new accounts so even if the buyer filed a dispute, Paypal will refund the money to whoever deserves after investigation.

    If you feel the need to post a thread about it, then I guess there's something wrong., either on your side or buyer's side. Why would you do business with someone whom you don't trust in the first place?

    Always Trust YOUR guts. It's right 99.99% of the time.

    Dont know who that is but its not me, either way it says Paypal so you are eligible to start a dispute, you can attach that screen shot to your dispute, the accused wont have any legs to stand on if you provide that as evidence.

    Good luck

    Wtf? HAHHAHA I havn't scammed anyone, this is my first account. How about get your facts straight before accusing people. This is the first time I've used BHW before and this is how people treat each other, what a joke. I asked for honest opinion, I've never scammed, I just want to protect myself. I've lurked these forums for well over a year and decided to post 1 post and I get accused of this, from a Jr. Vip. Embarrassing.

    Kind of sad you have to tell people not to help when you don't even know who I am, I've never even heard of you before.

    Grow up kid honestly
