    People can put in a claim saying you took the money and didn't give the items.

    Take screens of the trade and MSN chatlogs. Should he put in a claim, you can submit the proof and your side of the story.

    I have been charged back twice, both unsuccessfully. It just took time - second one took like a month I believe. Sucks.

    before you trade , this is what usually known sellers do , make him to say that he got his item and take screen shot of that . after this , tell him to send u a mail to ur paypal email with his paypal email saying he is chatting with XXX.XXX.com msn and he got the items . after that send him a request of a virtual item ( I really donnu how it works) and there is no refund option .

    I didn't explain it right cause I really don't understand bout it , although Thing can explain perfectly bout that

    Idk if "money as gift" works...but tell to him send the money as gift and take also a screenshot.

    May be he cant chargeback the money after this !

    He treats everyone badly.. but he is correct.. they only way to avoid be scammed is to deal with long time traders and reputable people. There is NO other way to avoid being scammed by the low life scum that troll these forums. Everytime someone post asking this, they get the same advice, but usually don't take it..

    Another way to avoid being scammed via PP is to treat it like its W.U. or MoneyGram, once you have the money in ur bank/pocket you give the items, if any chargeback is attempted once it clears your bank, you simply call ur bank and tell them you don't authorize the payment/deduction. Simple
