A friend of mine was selling some items a while ago and sadly he got scammed. First the trade went fine, however shortly after the trades the scammer pulled a chargeback. The scammer had bought 300 CSGO keys ($600) and a factory new Dragon Lore AWP valued at $1800...all adding up to $2400. I helped my friend out by gathering all that I could to help PayPal actually check if the accounts used to purchase the items were hacked/hijacked and he also gave them complete screenshots of literally everything related. PayPal customer support rejected his complaint at first but after a few mails the person who replied from PayPals side said that she'll escalate the matter to an "expert". A few days later my friend receives a mail from PayPal...which isn't unexpected, however, what was unexpected was the reply PayPal gave. They said that they think that he has been doing some fraudulent stuff and locked his account completely. After all this he lost... ...$2400 (USD) to the scam... ...what ever money was on the account when PayPal locked it... ...and last but not least he can't now get his salary from his side job because they pay to PayPal... This pretty much says that PayPal can't be trusted, it's not safe in any way to do trades via PayPal nor are they capable of actually handling any sorts of scam reports or anything revolving around that. The original report can be found here and as always there's more behind the scenes, personal details similar things which isn't for public view.
