Hello all,

Recently I listed my shoes on a website called grailed . com and someone bought them. I shipped the shoes out via ups. I added the signature confirmation to the package when it gets dropped off for proof of delivery. One month later, the buyer charges back for an unauthorized transaction. I responded to the unauthorized transaction on paypal. I told them I have the tracking number with signature conf and sent the messages that were on grailed . com between me and the user.

I am eligible for seller protection on paypal if that means anything.

Do you guys have any tips on what I can do to win this case, or am I ****?

You have their address right? I know what I'd do lol

Edit: Actually don't do this, it'll end up getting you in trouble instead of him.

I sure do.

I was thinking the exact same thing if I don't win the case.

Proceed to your local municipality court and use his address, and name to press charges for seller buyer fraud.

You are protected by PayPal and you're also protected by the law. I'd try to solve the case with PayPal first and if that doesn't work, I'd go to court with it.

Paypal has been cracking down on fraudulent reports. However if they do grant him his money back you can always take it to your local court and they will help you solve it. Usually when a buyer sees legal issues they will try to resolve it. If he decides to try and resolve it with you, make sure you get proof of him scamming (ie. him admitting to fraudulently charging back) and get your money via Western Union.

And some courts will waive filing fees if you submit a finance affidavit.

Thanks everyone. Hope I can get my money back. I will just have to wait and see what paypal responds with. If paypal doesn't do anything, I will take it to court.

That is your best option. Don't harass him either.
