Hi, I'm in talks with someone who got my contact details off another forum to provide him a service. We agreed a price of $1000 and now he is asking me how to pay. One thing I am concerned about is that he may be a chargeback scammer. I noticed that (i) He is not a member of the forum where he got my email off (he must've found my sales thread, which contains my email, through a Google search), so I'm quite surprised he trusts me to do a $1k transaction having never dealt with me before. He even said that he forgot the URL of the page where he found me, and asked for it again - which I guess is understandable if he found me through a Google search and didn't note down the URL after emailing me. And (ii) His tone of conversation in the email exchange is very casual. I'd expect a more serious tone over a $1k deal. Again, this doesn't mean he's a scammer, but I would like to hedge myself. My plan is to create a new PayPal account (under a new IP obviously) to receive the $1k. As soon as I receive it, I will move it away and deliver the service. I don't care if the account gets limited after a few days, because I will move away the money on the day he sends it. My concern is, if I receive $1k on the first day of opening a new unverified PP account, will that account become instantly limited upon receipt of the money? Again, I don't mind if it gets limited after a few days, but I need it to be working for at least a few hours after I receive the funds. Thanks in advance!
