I got scammed and just received a refund from paypal.
eBay scammer id: refinnej143
Paypal scammer email: email@example.com
I did a buy it now and used PayPal, it seemed fishy after the whole
Process started. Seller had good ratings and good communication before purchase. They provided a fake tracking number after funds cleared and I called paypal right away.
PayPal was actually pretty solid on this one, took 1 day and they had the money in my account.
Scammer was exceptionally deceptive obviously pretending to be 2 different people (one on eBay and one on PayPal).
Lesson learned if it's too good to be true it likely is.
Even though PayPal did well it was pretty stressful having to deal with getting money back on a complete fraud transaction. There is always a small chance that the seller can win these disputes which is why I will likely never use ebay for anything over 100$ ever again.
