b\Being safe with bitcoins is hard so far I've tried to buy something off this forum but the seller ended up being a scammer but I used escrow so I managed to save the coins and another seller has shipped the items to the wrong address it appears  Angry. Then I've been scammed twice on bitmarket for 200$. It wears on my patience. I should hire some bitcoin vigilantes.

If you sell on my site, I verify every single person for free to make sure they're not scammers. Link is in my sig. Even if you don't sell on Virtual FAQs, feel free to send people over for free verification.

Even when I sell with PayPal, I limit it to 1-4 BTC per week. I'm lucky that I don't need to sell a huge quantity by PayPal at once.

Oh and your gamerchicks website is down? Was curious about it. haha

This was really useful, thanks FAQs.  I am wondering if I join a mining pool that automatically pays my shares through paypal would be a danger.  Could they send me whatever my proportions are and then later pull that back to their name?

What can I do to receive payment from pools like this, and then make sure I can not have the money taken later?

Is there a max time on how long someone can give money and then take it back, or can it be done any time?

It depends how they're paying you by PayPal.

PayPal disputes can be opened up to 45 days.
Bank transfers up to 60 days.
If credit card, it's 1 month to a year.

I'd ask for Mass Pay + a followup email from the sender about the service and how he was happy and won't dispute.... if that's one of the options. That's the safest legit way to receive money.

If you're worried about a mining pool not paying you, then get some information about who's running it. Names, addresses, phone numbers, reputation, background check. The more info you have, the more comfortable you will be. Do not blindly accept PayPal from strangers.

What if a 100% trustworthy person wanted to buy? Then you would sell. You need to gauge the trust of who you sell to when using PayPal. If you don't, you will get scammed.

Hello there. I'm a PayPal Fraud Prevention Specialist and I'll teach you all my tricks on how to stop getting scammed by accepting PayPal. I don't guarantee 100% but we will try for 99%! I don't charge for my services because I'd rather stop the scam then for you not to pay my fees and get scammed. But if  you feel I did a good job, feel free to donate!

Suggested Donation: 1 BTC

Thanks!

Read my PayPal Virtual FAQ!
http://virtualfaqs.com/forum/paypal/574-paypal-virtual-faq.html

Most of the answers are already there, but most people have the attention span of a typical BTC trader so feel free to ask questions here.

Disclaimer: I prefer to deal in prevention techniques not after you're scammed as there's little you can do. So if you're not sure, please post here before trading.

The link does not seem to work anymore. Can you please update it or point me towards the active location? Thank you

Also one question for me. Is there any way how to recognize credit card payment instead of payment from Paypal balance? I have been using pp for a little bit now and luckily for me I have only encountered alright buyers. My false believe that gift payments are safe vanished now so would like to stay on the safe side. Also is there a monthly limit of accepting payments on pp?

i want to buy a small amount through paypal and i understand the risk of scammers on the buying end but if i send as a gift then im not covered by buyer protection and im worried that the seller could just not send the bitcoins and just be like "oh thanks for the donation, bye" how can i avoid the risk of scammers on the selling end?
