    Hey guys..

    Recently purchased 3 months of a VPS server and the guys failed to deliver. (lots of downtime, etc)

    Anyhow.. I would like to dispute this but the account I used to pay for it has fake information.

    I never did this before. Will PP ask me for some ID? Am I risking the account? (I have about $100 on it).

    Oh, and it's a non verified account too.

    What should I do?

    The amount in dispute is roughly over $50.

    I can't answer your question; I've never used a fake paypal.

    But I wonder, what are the odds that the person you bought this service from is also using a fake paypal account and then transferring funds elsewhere.

    You should try to dispute it and then let us know how it went.

    Not the answer you're looking for, I know, but at least your post is bumped up again.
