    So typical craigslist paypal scammer wants to buy my car though paypal and send someone to pick it up. I'm sure you all know how this works. I get paid, give the car, then am forced to refund by PayPal and cry myself to sleep. Yea im not dumb enough to fall for it but what if I take payment tell the guy picking up the car to screw off and spend it before I can refund? I know this might sound pointless because at some point PayPal will take the money back even if that mean I now owe them and I'm sure they wont stop until they get it but I sure could use a little loan right now! It is not my intention to rob paypal just borrow a hundred or two till I actually do sell my car. (a few days tops) I'm so broke right now I have almost no food left, behind on all bills, and no cigs or beer to speak of!

    So my question is would I get in trouble by doing this? Would PalPal be pissed? This is my real PalPal account with my real name and I have a nice eBay account linked to it(that I owe 100 bucks to and would love to get active again cause I have lots of stuff to sell). Will the police be at my door if I do this? lol From what I see ppl doing with PayPal the police don't give a crap unless PayPal doesn't get paid. I think..

    Also this makes me wonder about scamming scammers with a fake Paypal just take the money and run sorta thing but that sounds like if it worked ppl would do it and I don't think ppl do it. Anyway regardless if I "borrow" some money or not I'm still gonna accept payment just to screw with this loser. I'm sure me holding his money even if he gets it all back will throw a wrench in his game! I wonder what you can do with 1200 bucks in Nigeria!

    Thank you in advanced for your replies!

    It's not his money, it's someone else's money that he's hacked their user name and password...

    if you purchase insurance then paypal will cry in the end , if this happens remove your cc and bank account right after you successfully withdraw the money , or install GPS that can track the car and sue them together with police , you get money for paypal , you get money from insurance , you get your car LOL :d

    Ya know I could get a cheap phone and install life 360 or some phone tracking stuff on it. I never hear of PayPal insurance for sellers lol. It looks like if I get shipping confirmation they cant chargeback. Have to look into how to do that with a car. I guess just get a receipt from the shipper. Also it says it must be shipped to the paypal address. Gears are turning...
