    As long as it goes through paypal it should be ok. Any situations like this tho, I always transfer the money out as soon as its there. Also if it rings alarm bells, take good photos of the item from all angles. alot of scams on there now are for partial refunds when the buyer isnt happy.......

    Yes cover yourself from all angles. Just make sure you clear you pp account and check its in your bank safely before you send. Heard of all sorts of charge back scams thru paypal...

    should be ok

    Even though you transfered out, paypal can still back charge and you`ll end up in the negative balance which you still have to clear it. Unless you open another account...

    Exactly. Worse case cenario would be to close the account but im sure it wont come to that.

    It was just a light hearted figure of speech mate and it's been removed now. No racial intent what so ever as you could have guessed from the context it was used in

    Far less than in your country actually though

    Normally I would advice against it, since PayPal protects buyers at the expense of the seller.. But since this guy have zero feedback, you can pretty much make any claim you want afterwards and PayPal will most likely side with you. I know this sounds ridiculous but that's PayPal in a nutshell.

    Honestly, I think it could go either way. I think the no feedback worries me more than anything. Call Paypal. Let them know your concerns and just ask them how to cover your bases. There's no guarantee these days, unfortunately. All you can do is try your best.
