    Stay away. Even if someone pays PayPal gift, they can do a charge back on their credit card. I’ve heard this can happen. Just too risky..

    He’ll pay you via Paypal, get the Bitcoin, then he’ll tell Paypal that you scammed him, and Paypal will take the money from you and give it back to him and he will still have the Bitcoin and there will be no way for you to get it back.

    What if the paypal account is not his? You will get the money and send the btc… later when the real owner file a dispute you will need to send the money back but the btc is already gone.

    PayPal can be reversed.

    Bitcoin can not be reversed.

    It’s really that simple. You lose.

    Scam. They will send some fiat via paypal. You will send BTC (note this is irreversible). They will claim products never arrive. They will chargeback. Paypal will support them. Your Paypal account will go back to the original balance and you will have lost your BTC.

    It’s a chargeback scam

    After you send the BTC they will claim fraud on PayPal and get the $$ refunded. Bitcoin cannot be charged back or reversed, so they’ll have all their original cash plus the BTC

    Obvious scam is obvious.

    > If this guy sends me money

    They’re not sending you any money.

    > Are they just really desperate for bitcoin?

    They want your money and if you give it to them in Bitcoin then you can’t get it back.

    > Or how am I at risk here if he sends me $ first and I send bitcoin back?

    Paypal will reverse the transaction.

    > am I not the one in position to rob / scam them?

    This is the hook on most good scams. You think you’re smarter than the scammer and can come out ahead.

    They won’t actually pay you on PayPal – you give them your PP details and they’ll send you a spoof email that looks exactly like PP, you log in and they’ve got your details. Either that or they’ll just do a PP chargeback regardless of if you send them BTC or not – even more likely if the PP account that sends you money is just somebody else’s he’s stolen access to.

    They are probably going to try and get you to paypal first and then never send BTC. Either way sounds a little scamish but there are plenty of people who hold BTC and want a quick way to cash it out which is usually never a quick process if you don’t already have established KYC credentials with an exchange and/or financial services agent. That being said if he/she wants to sent BTC first and it’s on the blockchain then that’s on them.

    Anyone want to comment on current legit person to person exchanges? Is localbitcoins still a good option for this?

    This is an age old chargeback scam. It’s no reflection on PayPal regardless of opinion on them. Any financial institution would work with this scam. Don’t be a target.

    unless its cash in hand you stand to lose because they can do a charge back. do not do checks, even certified or counter checks, as by the time it clears hes long gone with your btc and you are out the cash.

    cash in hand should be the only way you would do this unless you know them

    PayPal has a very high chargeback risk, and they nearly always favor the buyer in a chargeback dispute

    To mitigate chargeback risk, wait 12 weeks before sending Bitcoin. Of course, then the “watches rolex” seller misses his yuletide season

    They rob you by sending you USD, you send them Bitcoin and then the bank inform you it’s a stolen PayPal account and YOU owe the bank the stolen money you knowingly received from a thief.

    Best bit is the wording. There isn’t really a Rolex “wholesaler”, just Rolex. An authorised dealer gets allocated an assortment of watches which they have to just deal with selling… and most all of them are sold before they even arrive. Go to a Rolex boutique and try buy one…

    So I’d also question his little story immediately.

    The only way this does not end with you losing money is if he is dumb enough to send you the bitcoin first. Then you might be able to scam the scammer.

    Unless he can hand me the cash and I can verify the cash are real, I will never send him any BTC. Any other ways he uses to send you the money, like a check or PayPal, he can withdraw it later, and you won’t get any money in the end.

    Bro it’s a third party payment. The money he sends is not his own money. He will fool someone else to send you the money and as soon as you send him Bitcoin he will disappear from the scene. Now the actual sender will contact you when he will realise that he has been scammed and will only ask you to pay the money back otherwise he will report the police.

    This is called Third party payment in crypto exchange platforms.

    Never provide him your own bank details or cash app details as it will put you in suspect of fraud. Your account may also freeze.

    Honestly I don’t think anybody has even commented on how this scam really works. He could chargeback, but likely he has no money in the first place. The scam most likely here is you give him your Paypal email address, he sends you fake Paypal money received email spoofed with Paypal’s email address.

    He never sent any money, your Paypal account receives nothing, he hopes you send him BTC. That’s the scam.

    Ask him to send the money in unmarked dollars to an unnamed postbox in your country. Price per btc is 60k usd as you suspect tomorrow’s exchange rate is moon and mailing the money will take a few days so he has to factor in the price increase.

    Also, why on earth did you think you needed additional information on this?

    Only do it if you have an Illegal blackmarket Account from a dead Person or unknown.
    Let them send it and than quickly go shopping with it. So no one can trace any shit back.
