I was selling Bitcoins on eBay (stupid move) and I had reversals. Would there be any problem loaning me 3.1BTC with half of it paid in one month (mid November) and the other half after Christmas? I have no money to pay the fees (I am living at home) and have no credit thus I cannot get a traditional loan. I'll pay 4 back totally. 2 by mid November and the other 2 after Christmas. I have no money for collateral. However I am willing to provide a photo of my ID.

No.  A newbie like you will not get a loan, especially to that extent.
Also, I 'm just curious, provide us a screenshot of your paypal and the chargeback, because I'm not into believing you.

You're selling 16 BTC here apparently, or maybe it's just to increase your post count.

If you can get collateral, I can give you this loan. Otherwise, no.

Well, the 16BTC sale did not go through.


Well, the PP reversals only play a small part in my ebay fees.

The fucker that dropped the $350 fee on me bought the following item via best offer then backed out and said that he wasn't purchasing the item. (Yeah, you just did because I accepted your Best Offer.):

Selling on eBay, selling *anything* on eBay, is plain stupid unless you have so a high volume to cover the inevitable losses you will get.
If you sell rarely, variance might kill you, like it did here.

Just out of curiosity: did you know about the risks involved and you did it anyway, of somehow you managed to elude this quite pervasive information?

Actually, no.

I was sucked into the profits like many other naive sellers, only to "learn" the cost of selling BTC on eBay later. Money has an effect on all of us.

I'm pretty sure paypal doesn't allow anyone to sell BTC on ebay anyways.  This was your fault, if this was an item allowed to sell by ebay, you could just contact their support.  I don't get it, the ebay listing is 10 BTC, and you tried to sell someone 16 BTC.  So you have 16 BTC, the least. $400 USD was lost by paypal fees, don't you have almost 10 BTC left?

Wouldn't it be easier to get a PayPal loan to pay your eBay fees then? Why add another layer of complexity to it?
