    Default My paypal takes one for the team <_<

    Well because im an upstanding english gentleman when my good friend needed someway to sell items in the game I offered up my paypal (he isnt old enough).

    So several transactions went through successfully, an iron bow money comes in, I buy him a RoC etc etc.

    Its all going well until I see an incoming transaction of $200 for an iron necklace.
    Now, what made me suspicious about this was the country that this money had come from.....turkey.

    Yep, I say to myself, ANY money in the world says this is the $200 that gets chargedback. So, the money comes in - the iron neck gets traded to this turkish fellow and all goes well.

    Well, all looking good, finally a trustworthy turk. Log into email account the other day, yep theres a message from paypal.

    -----------------------------------
    Details of Disputed Transaction
    -----------------------------------

    Buyer's Name: Hakan xxxx
    Buyer's Email: [email protected]
    Transaction Date: 24 Apr 2006
    Transaction Amount: -$200.00 USD
    Ah suprise suprise theres a chargeback. Yep, so a full month and 2 days after I get the money, he does a chargeback on me.

    I plan on ringing paypal on tuesday (bank holiday money) and explaining that I'm english, and this guy is turkish who are internationally known scammers, all of them. I believe that arguement will hold a lot of weight.

    So 2 things are to be taken from this post:

    1) Typical that the first dispute on my paypal (despite EASILY over 200 transcations) is caused by selling to a turk
    2) All those people saying 'wait 3 days so they cant do a chargeback' are wrong, as shown people can chargeback a month later. (hopefully leaving it for a month should help me - Why wait for a month if I didnt provide the item.....)







    Damn turks <_<

    Are they holding the money or just have an investgation? If it is an investigation answer it with exactly what happened and there is no way in hell paypal will allow it.

    They've currently denied me access to the $200 until they end their investigation. I'm quietly confident I'm gonna win, or I'm sure as hell not giving up without a fight :P

    I'm not entirely sure what to say to paypal though, as I have no proof he does have the item or that it was ever given to him (except a screenshot showing the item in trade - but that could be argued that it was just showing him the item, not giving it to him). But then equally he doesnt have proof that I didnt give it to him, why wait a month before a chargeback.

    Undoubtedly he'll make up some bullshit like I kept saying i'd give it to him then going afk or something.

    I'm not entirely sure what I need to be saying

    Any hints?

    You will not win, paypal will not issue refunds on intangible items

    Sorry, i misread, thought you were buying.

    I am currently in the same situation as you are, with that pathetic charlie, he is trying to do a chargeback on an item he bought from me.
