    So I responded to someone on Facebook seeking laptop workers from home paypal required.
    Basically she wanted to utilise my paypal as she didnt have her own account and for history/sales purposes it wouldve went through my 12 yr account not problem. She said id get a percentage. I gave her my paypal id next minute my balance has gone up $1000. LOL!
    She then wanted me to "withdraw to my account" im assuming in order to transfer to hers.
    I asked her for more company info etc and she wouldnt give me, was being VERY vague.

    Any ideas?!?

    I refunded the cash and told her im not interested without more info.
    It is actually something id be interested in doing also if all above board and legal-anyone have more info?
    Thanks

    I swear to god if this is gonna lead to an attempted scam, fuck off.

    If not it's because they don't want banned from PayPal, most likely illegal services.

    This is one of the oldest scams out there. Never accept payments for anybody else, it will come back on you.

    So somebody contacts you out of the blue and wants to use your paypal account and you let them, come on get real it's a scam. Best to stay well clear of this. Classic scam

    There are so many red flags in OP's post, it's not even funny. On another note, I am good friends with the prince of Nigeria... He is wanting to get some money out of the country. Also, you have a virus on your computer...
