If you log in to your real Pay Pal account (not some link in an email) and there is no money present and no copy of that email, then it’s obvious that there is no transaction, but how many people will go through this extra trouble?
2 – They send you an email from Pay Pal (again phony) saying that the money has been sent but you must click on the enclosed link to confirm the transaction.
I have recently come across many people asking questions on other blogs and postings about using Pay Pal (the real one) for completing transactions through Craigslist. Here is a sample questions that I have come across (there have been many others along the same line but this sums it up nicely): I recently posted an item for sale on Craigslist and the buyer wants to use Pay Pal.
We all know there are several Pay Pal scams on Craigslist that are always taking place and for a full description of those scams you can always read them on my website what about using the Real Pay Pal? I spoke with the guy (gal) on the phone and it all seems legit. Pay Pal (the real one) will only protect you (maybe) if your transaction goes bad on Ebay, NOT any place else.
After submitting an order, you will be redirected to Pay Pal to complete the transaction. On occasion transactions need to be reviewed and confirmed by your bank.
Our service team will contact you and ask if you would like to wait or change to another size or color.
One very important rule above all others is to Never allow yourself to be pulled away from crowds since the old adage is correct that “There is safety in numbers”! I will add more scams here in the future but at my website have an on going list of scams that just keeps growing.
Check that out for the latest, and don’t get discouraged by the HUGE list.
