Problem with my scammer
Hey guys (don't know if this is the right forum to post this but oh well),
I got scammed for about $100 while back just for some clomid and shit. I paid with Paypal on Visa. I called Visa to claim "unathorized transaction." Paypal just locked my account and i got this email:
Your PayPal account access has been limited because we received
notice from your credit card company the you initiated a chargeback
for an "unauthorized charge", meaning that you had no prior knowledge
of the transaction and did not participate in the transaction in any
You will be asked to fax the following information to us at
402-537-5755. Please make sure to reference Case # ----
in the fax.
1. A copy of your current Driver's License.
2. A copy of the most recent credit card statement sent to your home.
3. A copy of this email.
What's the deal here? Should I send the the crap they need (I have $300 sitting in there i can't get)?

seems like an awful lot of trouble for 100 bucks man. sucks that things turned out this way however sometimes we become complacent and things like this get us in check. better to get scammed out of 100 bucks and be more careful then to send off 1 grand and have it happen.
find a new source and hope that paypal unlocks your account. thats all you can hope for, good luck bro.

the problem is that you are telling your credit card that you ddint authorize the charge. paypal was the charge on your card. So you are telling your credit card that paypal used you card with out authorization So they are trying to protect them selves from the fraud charge.

depending on what kind of paypal account you have you can dispute it with them. I once got ripped off on ebay and paypal totally came through.
Having said that ... if you went out and bought $100 worth of crack and it turned out to be soap rocks would you flag down a cop and tell him someone just ripped you off for a hundred? Nah probably not ... I dont know if I'd raise too much attention to the fact that I was buying 'illeagal substance' .. just my 2 cents

If I do send them this stuff can I get in any toruble?
I know its only $100 but I'm a poor student and it really helps!
