I don't need to google it. I was told DIRECTLY BY PAYPAL that they do not do this. This is often a tactic used by scammers in order for them to get stuff shipped out before the payment is sent ("Please send package and get a tracking number before paypal releases funds" then the funds never come and the items already shipped because you can't get a tracking number without actually shipping the item)....THIS IS WHY THEY DONT HOLD FUNDS.

Now in your case, this would benefit HIM not YOU, so I doubt you are trying to scam anyone...If anything given the situation, I would say YOU are getting scammed.

But I still stand by my statement that paypal does not hold funds...Maybe they have, I'm certainly not all knowing, but their policy states that they do not, and I have spoken directly with representatives on this issue via email and they have confirmed what I am saying.

All of my payments were successful meaning they went through. If you were not going to ship Tuesday why did you tell me you were going to? I did ask about pics you said it was in a box and you didn't want to get it out and I okayed that. I also did ask many questions about the kit. It had better be in the condition you stated. With everything.

I know from experience paypal can and does frequently hold funds, lock accounts and prohibit you from earning a living selling items. There are multiple cases where charities were screwed because the activity looked "suspicious" (many people sending small sums of money) paypalsucks.com for starters.

Again I would not have freaked out if you shipped it the day you told me you would. It is fine I have record of what you said was going to be included and I feel like your trustworthy so I don't need to worry about that.

Interesting. Maybe its policy when shipping items overseas? I dunno. Just telling you my experience with them when I sold my PC last year. Wish I had the emails still. I had emails coming from what appeared to be paypal but they were not actually from paypal. Emailed them to confirm and that is when they told me this. This was about a year ago though, so its possible the policies have changed.

Brett if you have further problems with PayPal I will be more than happy to talk to them to help you out. All I can say is all of my money has been taken from my bank account. Again it is not my purpose to drag your name around I just needed to get answers and it took this to get a response. You got my messages and could have replied to them.

Nice try.
