    Hello,

    I have recently got an offer and want to try it. But I have to give $300.
    This is the first time i am dealing with the person to whom i have to pay. I am paying via paypal, so if the person cheats me and withdraws the money from the account, will paypal still be able to give my money back? I mean what if there is no money in his account and i opened a dispute, if i show proofs and all to paypal, can i get my money back?

    Regards

    If you're paying for the service you might not see you money back.
    If you're buying physical goods PayPal will be on your side.

    If you don't trust this person, use an escrow service. Don't gamble
    with money you cannot afford to lose.

    Or, use PayPal and use your credit card as a source of payment. You can
    use you credit card company to reverse the payment if you're cheated.
    If you have Gold or Platinum card it will be very fast and easy.

    In my experience Paypal will give you your money back. The other person will end up having to pay Paypal back.

    If they remove all thier funds and remove thier bank accounts and credit cards then there isnt anything paypal can do to get your money back, normally paypal freeze the account so you cant remove anything.

    I tried to get £50 back from a service that hacked my paypal account and taken the money for subscription, when paypal tried to get it back they had removed all thier bank accounts

    Paypal will give him negative balance and still will not credit your account, PP will credit your account once he maintain zero balance and cover that negative one.

    Paypal can not pay you from own ass.
