Do a search for "Echobit", unfortunately it's almost all bad news.

no... everyone’s lesson should be PayPal – it offers zero protection. folks selling products in excess of 100 or so bones should be taking a credit card. i have made some very large PayPal purchases but have learned from everyone else and i will never do it again… try this the next time you buy something with PayPal that cost over a 100 bones – tell them to send the product and when it shows up, you will send them the money… that’s what they are doing to you…

Better yet, use a USPS money order. The buyer has recourse via filing USPS mail fraud with the postmaster (ie; federal /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif ).

On a slightly divergent topic, wasn't PayPal recently sued or lose a court ruling about their practices of not transferring the "buyer protection" of a credit card purchase through their systems?

I vaguely recall seeing something about how they are a "middleman" for the credit card customer and as such, the cardholder is entitled to the same protections (fraud, etc) as if they had used the card directly for a purchase.... I'm fuzzy on the details but I could have sworn I saw something about this on either an online news service, or in the local paper. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

lesson learn will be on him also
they alway say what goes around comes around.

i wish i had the mentality that if i was
ever to run into him , something would be coming
out of his hyde , weather it be my parts i ordered , or
my money back. but times have changed , i will just
let the law deal with it.

I was just going to post that I assumed anything you bought with a credit card was protected

Not everyone that uses paypal uses a credit card. Often times I'll debit it from my bank account.

If you use a credit card for a paypal transaction you probably can sucessfully dispute it.
