    this is probably a dumb question as some
    might say yes to what im about to ask some
    will say no..question would u except this or not.

    ok i charge 75$ liftime use on my forum of which
    a few of them are bhw members.
    anyways i get a pm on my forum today asking
    to pay for a vip account on my forum.

    The paypal account is in one of my parents names, and it
    is connected to my own bank account (with one of my
    parents CC's on there as well). They are aware of this setup,
    and are OK with me spending money through this account
    (as I am profiting a lot). I spend lots of money with Yahoo
    PPC through this Paypal account, and I can assure you that
    it is a legitimate Paypal account (and you will not receive any chargebacks).
    I do not see what the issue is. What paypal address should I send payment
    to so that I can get VIP Access?
    Thanks,
    Alex

    ide say no - and the people of bhw say?

    I would. I dont see what you can lose. If he wouldnt be smart a chargeback could happen. Not more. So nothing to lose.

    Theres always a risk of a chargeback. Even with normal people. So you should check the following:
    One side:
    A guy willing to pay your money.
    Seems ok
    Other side:
    The possibility of chargeback...

    Whats the best side?

    On the other hand. Would it be really that bad to have a chargeback? Are you low on money or why is that a problem?

    dude, I wouldn't worry about it unless it has adult content. Even then, you should still let him pay. You probably won't get a chargeback. When most parents find out their kid uses their credit card they don't chargeback; the kid just gets in trouble. Since he's 17 he probably has a little bit of his own money (at least $75) so he can pay his parents back anyway. Seriously don't worry about it.
