    Why is it they always want to know the paypal info. It's not like they can do anything with it unless they know your password (or can figure it out) is there? I'm not about to start publicizing my info. to just anybody for kicks but how bad would it be if they did get the paypal email address? Just wondering?

    They will send you a fake Paypal invoice with fake links. Looks legit as can be.

    So if you are diligent and only access your paypal account directly from the website (and not through their phony links) you'd know right away they are scammers? That's kinda an old trick but i guess people still fall for it?

    Or they actually pay for the item and then open a dispute via Paypal and then force a partial refund or all.. Paypal eBay always sides with the buyer with disputes even if your add say no returns no warranties.. I learned it the hard way with the last cell phone via sold via eBay PayPal.. Never again, cash only now!

    I don't recall the details specifically. his started through a Paypal invoice but his mistake was not paying attention to the bank escrow. The Paypal invoices and sites were investigated and deemed "nearly legitimate". It was 8 or 9 years back.

    I just listed a fridge on cl. I forgot to check the box that says no email contact. in 36hrs, I received 15 different emails asking me to send information to an email address. stupid me and stupid people. I did receive one text that was of the same variety from a nevada area code. first one ever of that.. lots of truth to spelling out part of the phone number, but I think even beyond that spacing the numbers differently as I had one number spelled..
