    Lets say a person sends money $3000 to my paypal directly to have me build a website for him. I built and he opens a case against me saying he didn't receive any services, or he received a service which is not as described. Or, he asks him bank to cancel this transaction because it is a scam or what so.

    So, it's never to be safe receiving money with Paypal? how about have ppl use the send money to friend or family option? But i think they still have a way to chargeback right?

    how about receiving funds by personal check or money order? I wanna make sure I get my funds without being charged back in the future.

    You can use escrow service like escrow.com or you can register to freelancer.com as employer. The buyer send the money to escrow.com/freelancer.com you send the site to escrow.com/freelancer.com. escrow.com/freelancer.com will send the website to buyer, and escrow.com/freelancer.com will release the money to you. Sorry for my English.

    The only 100% guaranteed way of receiving money with no chance of being defrauded or having the funds be reversed is Western Union and bank wire.
