    Another sure fire way to tell if it is a scammer, is tell the seller you have relatives close to them and you can probably get them to pick it up, and you can save them the trouble of packing and shipping, plus you can send cash. When they try to make up reasons why they can't do that, it is pretty darn obvious.

    I did that just this week and it went from "it's yours" to "someone else is wanting it"

    Folks ... the issue here is simple. It's always a seller that pays fees on PayPal, if merchandise is being purchased. If the seller says you can "save" by using F&F, it's him that's saving or he's trying to rip you off. PayPal is pretty clear about these things. If you refuse to educate yourself about how things work, then anyone who gets ripped-off did so themselves by not understanding the terms, and PayPal bears no responsibility at all. PayPal protects purchases, not transactions. They are only a money broker, not a bank.
