I have some questions regarding the safety of Paypal when it comes to scammers.
As I'm a person that's pretty sceptic towards most people and their agendas when it comes to trading and selling overseas I felt that I need to ask you guys about this matter. Atleast those of you who got experience with paypal.

The situation is like this. There's a person offering me a pretty large amount of money for a demo, on his own initiative, and is eager to put it in my paypal account. Could this be a sign of some sort of scam? Could he claim a withdrawal of the money once I've sent the demo? Or is money once put in my paypal account mine to keep? And if I send him the demo with registered mail and tracking number, is he still able to fuck me over when it comes to the money?

I'm not sure if this is the case yet though, and maybe its a person whose got pure intentions. I just want to play safe and ask anyone with enough experience on this matter.

Thanks.

I have never had problems with paypal;
When the money is on your account it is yours.

Thanks

Kauz, he can claim the money back. And PayPal always takes the buyer's side, so it's possible you can get fucked...

I agree with this mate, he can easily open dispute on your payapl account and take his money. Paypal always in favour of Buyers.

I suggest you to sell them on Ebay or Discogs, in this case you have more protection.
