    You'll get your money back. Paypal is really good at this. Even if he withdraws it from his account, PP will reimburse you.

    I got ripped by a scammer for 650 bucks over an IC-746, Paypal got me every penny back. Bout 2 weeks from original report to full refund.

    Maybe so, but not everyone using a gmail address is a scam artist. I've bought and sold equipment all over the world, using a gmail address. There are bad apples everywhere. Doing your homework first is key.

    I'm not sure this is completely accurate. Their purchase protection works if the seller is verified through PayPal like eBay or other internet sellers. If you open a dispute for a transaction like this one between two individuals they will place a hold on the funds in that account. Scammers usually empty their accounts before a victim can file so there's noting to hold. I would be surprised if they've changes their policies to reimburse anyone who gets ripped off in a quick scam. Good luck.
