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!
