So, can people reverse a payment made to my Paypal account?
In more detail: someone offered to pay me for something. Great. Deal done, they pay me. They pay me twice.
Then they email to ask for the overpayment back.
Hmm…now this starts to smell a little of a standard scam. Ask for the overpayment back and then reverse the transactions entirely, leaving me out of pocket.
This has been done with bank accounts, cheques, bankers drafts and the like innumerable times. However, for it to work from the scammer\’s side it requires that the transaction with Paypal can be reversed.
So, does anyone know, is it actually possible for someone who has paid in money to my account (it is marked \”completed\”) to reverse that transaction? On Paypal that is?
