    Hey guys,

    I have been making a "little" bit of money buying and selling gift cards.

    I commented on a forum post about a month ago asking for people to get paid to review products, I did this for a bit then I was asked to buy gift cards for this guy.

    To cut a long story short I was sent $80 per day via Paypal (always different names) to email this guy $60 worth of Amazon gift cards.

    After a month of doing this my personal (10 year old) PayPal account has been limited and they want a whole lot of information from me including invoices and my details (its a legit account).

    I have about $70 within the account but I dont know what to do, any GENUINE help would be apricated.

    Thanks

    Just tell PP the truth. Don't lie to them or for him. There's a slim chance you may get your account back.

    A lot of us got scammed by this guy. A SL is forthcoming; I already submitted it. Just waiting for mod approval.

    Yes, but hats off to him, he has been communicating very well, I am hoping to hear back soon.

    I'm lucky I took some money out before, otherwise I would have been screwed. I will let you know if this is sorted, I dont think its a scam its just Paypal's checks.... Saying that I wouldn't have started this method if i knew my account was any way at risk....
