You got paid, what's to worry about???

Not sure, which is why I asked. While I donít necessarily have any specific worries, folks are having issues with new members and it gave me a funny feeling. Thought it prudent to ask the broader crowd if thereís anything that Iím not thinking of that could cause issues for me.

Not sure how to confirm PayPal status.

You could report his PM to Big_Red, and he would check the new member out. Little triangle in the PM, top right. Explain your concern.

I've had several transactions like this, and trusting my gut, they all worked out well.
Glad to hear all worked out for you, and most likely this would too. Forgot to mention this before, but he didnít do friends/family PayPal (but did gross up for fees). Not sure but maybe that could create issues?

Hopefully nothing to worry about. Thank you for the responses.

Yeah Taco, that's not a great sign. There are 2 types of PayPal transactions, Friends and Family, and Merchandise.

If the buyer selects the Merchandise option, the buyer has a LOT more protection, even on eBay. That protection is easily abused, by saying something never arrived, arrived damaged, lost in transit etc, etc. In almost all situations PayPal will side with the buyer.

The other issue is that if PayPal finds out it is for anything gun related they will cancel your account, with no recourse on your part. This happened to at least one well known user here on the forum. (And it was for a scope)

I personally would consider refunding. And he can either select Friends and Family, or send some other form of payment. My personal favorite option is to get the guy on the phone, pretty quickly you can tell if it's fraud or not. Good luck man.

Thank you, Ripton, that makes a ton of sense. I’m going to cancel the transaction and refund.
