I have recently come across many people asking questions on other blogs and postings about using Pay Pal (the real one) for completing transactions through Craigslist. Here is a sample questions that I have come across (there have been many others along the same line but this sums it up nicely): I recently posted an item for sale on Craigslist and the buyer wants to use Pay Pal.
If you keep these things in mind and still wish to go forward with a Pay Pal payment on Craigslist I hope that it all works out for you.Considering these people are always looking for new ways to scam you from your money I would be very hesitant to proceed with these types of transactions.Once you do so and they have the merchandise in hand, they turn around and file a charge-back saying that they never received the item.It doesn’t matter if you have a copy of the delivery confirmation or an email from them asking you to send the merchandise to a different address.(feel free to leave me comments if you have seen or heard of any other ways you can be defrauded on Pay Pal) 1- They (the scammer) will send you a phony (but legitimate looking) email from Pay Pal indicating that the money has been sent but won’t be credited to your account until you email back the tracking number.
This is complete BS because Pay Pal will NEVER asks for a tracking number before crediting you the money.

They want to use the real Pay Pal to pay for the merchandise, so it must be OK right? So how can they possibly defraud you and Pay Pal once the money is in your account?
Here are a few quick ways, and there are probably many more!
They will then apologize and say that they made a mistake but if you could please just wire the balance to their “shipping agent” through Western Union they will arrange a pickup.
