Someone from Gumtree has approached me offering to purchase an iPod from me and they're asking to do it through paypal so I can ship the item, they claim they will send the money through Friends&Family and im just wondering if they can file a dispute or charge back the money and scam me? Also is there a way to check if the payment has actually been sent through family&friends?

Im a noob with paypal

Thanks!

No they cant chargeback via paypal but could via their bank and it will show as a transaction with the amount, just make sure the shipping is tracked and you will be fine.

They don't have the right to make a dispute once the buyer purchases the item with Family & Friends. You see with F&F they don't have the seller protection when you/they purchase the option with Family & Friends.If they do PayPal will decline the disclaimer dispute. Read here about it;

Community PayPal Admin wroteHi everyone,

"Payments sent through the Friends and Family option are not eligible for Buyer Protection at this time.
If you are paying for an item, goods, or service, we strongly recommend against marking it as Friends and Family. So, stay safe and don't use this if you're purchasing something - you might be hurting yourself in the long run" [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]
