    What would you say is the Safest & Best way to send money w/o being scammed?

    I see that Paypal ripped off many people when filing disputes [when they received fakes] etc...


    Will paying w/ CC on Paypal help my case if I don't get the promised merchandise from the seller?

    AND ... if not Paypal, what would you recommend?

    Opinions about Bank Transfers? ... is it safe? :confused:

    Escrow.com is your best choice , they protect both byers and sellers, theirs fees are high but worth it.

    HAHAHA ^^^ you can't be serious. That is definately not the safest. I would almost put it at the least safe.

    western union has no protection whatsoever. once you send your payment, it's gone.

    There's no way I'm going to send $ to someone w/ WU .. If I am the seller I may accept. :)

    Just checked & apparently they don't support US to US transactions "at this time" .. damn it!

    ---> Any thoughts on AlertPay?
    I've had an acct. but never used them. :confused:
