I need some advice in selling an item to a POTN member.
The POTN member wants to buy a lens I have; however, the Paypal account he uses shows under another family members name?
"...The only item to mention is the PayPal account shows under a family members name (long story short, PayPal has it associated with my email address and won't allow me to create a new one)"
Is there any risk here as I don't know exactly what he is talking about? Just FYI, he is a regular participant on the POTN forum with over 500 posts.
1) Is there anyway a claim could be filed with Paypal in which they would return the funds and I would then be out the money and lens?
2) Should I ask for his number and family member number/email addresses to insure it isn't a stolen account?
3) I rarely use the "gift" option, so I don't know if that is full proof or not?
