Hey Ladies,Just thought I would give you a heads up on the latest scam. I thought I had seen it all . . .and then .. . . I sold a purse to a lady, she paid me immediately, and I printed out a shipping label from paypal. Well, a couple days later she left me positive feedback indicating she loved the item. I thought that was strange because I knew she hadn't received it yet! I hadn't shipped the item because it was the memorial weekend holiday so I was going to wait until tuesday to drop it off in the mail. When I logged into my paypal account that day, I noticed she had file an "unauthorized activity" on the transaction. I contacted paypal and they told me she did this, so they reversed the money from my account. It took them about 2 weeks to investigate, until they credited her the money. Luckily I did not drop her package in the mail, otherwise I would be out the $ and the product. I'm thinking she thought I would leave automatic feedback, if she left me + feedback, and since a tracking # was emailed to her, she figured I had mailed it. Maybe you guys know about this scam, but if not I thought I would let you know.
