Debt collection commissioned by Paypal after suffering fraud on eBay classifieds legitimate?

Hello,

I fell for a scammer when buying from classified ads.

I was so naive and paid friends with Paypal (as requested by the supposed seller). Immediately after payment (€50) nothing more was heard from the seller.

Then I canceled a direct debit with my bank so that PayPal could be debited from my bank account.

I had PayPal described the case. But since I paid friends with Paypal, Paypal insists on the money. Paypal has set my account to -50 and has now commissioned a debt collection agency with additional fees.

Do I have to pay the 50 euros? Do I have to pay the additional debt collection fees?



------------------------

Of course you have to pay. PayPal has nothing to do with an alleged “fraud” as this company is nothing more than a financial serviceice is.



------------------------

Yes.

There isn't really anything more that can be said. Theoretically you would have had to deal with Paypal. But with friends and family they don't do anything.

Now you can only advise to pay as quickly as possible to prevent it from becoming even more expensive.



------------------------

You have given the payment order to Paypal. You owe Paypal the money.

Why do you think an international bank should be held liable for your mistakes? Oh, it's about assisted payments? But you are still of age.



------------------------

With Paypal it is expressly forbidden to pay friends when making a purchase with Paypal.

You yourself made the mistake of violating Paypal's terms of use, turning off buyer protection and deliberately giving away €50.

That was YOUR fault and not Paypal's fault!

And now...Did you cheat Paypal out of €50? No, you can't get away with that.

You have to pay the €50 in any case. You probably won't be able to avoid the debt collection fees either. The longer you refuse, the more expensive it will be. And you will certainly have to expect a ban.



------------------------

yes, you have to pay the 50€ and the operational costs of Paypal because Paypal did not cheat you. Paypal made your payment to your friend according to instructions. If it wasn't your friend then you have also violated Paypal's terms and conditions and could have your account blocked for life.
