I just got a new one for a bike I'm selling. The seller wanted to verify my name for PayPal (never required) instead of just my account.

I gave it and then I got the PayPal announcement of payment plus $950 for shipping (it was very good quality) and an e-mail telling me to please contact the shipper. Of course there was no actual deposit in my PayPal account.

I sent it to the PayPal fraud folks to work.

Anyone know about eChecks? I just sold something and the buyer is going to send payment to my pay pal account in the form of an e Check. Is this a safe transaction in your opinion? Pay Pal sent an eMail saying not to ship for 3 to 4 days until it clears an the address is NOT verified. Something sound funny, wrong to me.

The other safety thing to do is to only use your credit Card Account on Paypal and NOT your banking account.

That way the transaction is reverseable and your exposure is only $50 max if the product isn't as represented or doesn't show up.

I used to have my checking linked to Paypal but under their newly revised agreement they have the right to charge your account as they deem appropriate.

So I removed the account and deal through my Credit Card.

Regards

Jerry

Youll be ok, its used for several reasons. Mostly they dont have a credit card on file or something like that. just wait a couple days and the money will appear in your account

Might not need to worry just yet. Some addresses are just hard to verify unless they're entered EXACTLY like the USPS wants them. I know because I live at such an address.

The name of the road I live on is COUNTY ROAD O, however I get (mostly junk) mail all the time with any of the following variations:
County Highway O,
County Trunk O,
County O,
Highway O,
Rural O,
Road Zero (?)
and finally,
Cnty Rhode Oh the Letter (that one cracked me up)

Plus all the crap I get with the house number mixed up, someone puts in COUNTRY instead of COUNTY, etc.

All of the above end up in my mailbox (perhaps more due to only having about 2,700 population) but all of them are rejected as "not valid" if you try to verify the address on the USPS web site.

My question is where is the government who are supposed to be taking care of us. President OBAMBA should look into this type fraud he is supposed to be taking care of us all HA HA!!!

Dear Henry, why is only one of the photos showing a V-Rod engine and why is that photo almost three years old?
