When I buy something and use PayPal what stops the person from juat taking my money and not sending me anything?

Technically, nothing does. However, if you bought something here, you'd use the goods and services option, which gives you some buyer protection. If you got scammed, you could file a claim with PayPal.


That, and we take that very seriously here at TechPB. We've even had one of our own admins track a scammer down, and actually go to their house to confront them about stolen gear.

if you use paypal, always check "goods and services" and not "gift". gift gives you no protection (it's also against paypal rules). buyers need to stop saying "you pay pp fees or gift". paypal fees are for SELLERS. /endrant

Yes, telling a buyer that they are paying the fees is against PayPal's rules, but it has become normal because telling someone that you will sell them your marker shipped for $200 plus fees, rather than $207 shipped and PayPaled. Pretty much the same amount of money in the end, but sellers want every dollar they can get, buyers want to pay the cheapest price.
