    A deal went very sour very quickly and I got unfairly screwed out of over $950. Now my gaypal is very negative and I was wondering if they can take money out of my bank account or something. The name and address are fake but the bank is real. Need some advice please. What can they do to me?

    The money is long gone. I just opened my paypal after 20 days and saw this bullshit buyer charged back on me.

    Wow. Sorry to hear that. It's very unfortunate. I hate when people do that.

    When Paypal does a chargeback it usually goes to the buyer with digital goods. A cost of doing business if you want to use paypal. There are about 10 other things that I don't like about paypal, but if you're serious about doing business, you don't have much of a choice.

    This is why you don't use paypal to sell digital products.

    Basically if it doesn't get posted and have a tracking number, dont use paypal.

    Use Escrow instead

    This is bullshit. I'm not paying a single cent of it. I already have another account on a different ip, bank and cc open and ready to go. Fuck paypal.
