Warning Re: PayPal Gift Payments


Recommended Posts

What seems like a totally easy way to save a few bucks has turned into a way to scam people. PayPal gift payments!

Sure it all sounds good send the seller a gift payment save them a bit of money and get your stuff. In a lot of cases this is true, but now not a week goes by without a member getting screwed or the run around about a PayPal gift payment.

So we are clear... Sending "Gift" payments eliminates any recourse you have against the seller.

You will not be able to do a charge back or file a claim with PayPal.

VGS STRONGLY recommends you do not send GIFT Payments for Purchases

Of course 99% of these transactions are probably fine. BUT we do not want to see anyone get scammed, and PayPal offers a fairly decent service, anyone remember the days of the check is in the mail?

A tip for the sellers that don't want to pay fees add 3% to your selling price before you post it!

Thank you for your time!
