LMFAO. However, I'm not sure which one of us you intended as the "callee."

I was just following the flow of the conversation and how I was riffing on Mark's craiglist ad. I figured Mark didn't do outcalls to my "friend" in Jersey. He seems to have some antiJersey sentiment building up from somewhere.

Seriously, Mahk, funny ad. And I'm glad that you're reconsidering your position on wombats.

That wasn't even the tripod that I was mentioning in this thread. I'm selling a bunch of old tripod equipment 'cuz I bought all new carbon fiber tripods and now I have way too many.

I'm familiar with quite a few scams, but can't help but wonder if there's one I'm not familiar with that's going on here.

Can a PayPal payer refute the sale afterwards and have the money transfer back to themselves, the way you can refute a charge on say, Visa or MasterCard?

I'll look this up on PayPal's site, but again wonder if there might be a scam I'm not familiar with.

It's a $700 video tripod.


It's possible for a buyer to dispute a PayPal purchase if they don't receive the purchased item, or if the item is not as described.

If the buyers friend is going to pick up the item, you need to be able to prove the following to PayPal in the case of a dispute:

1) The buyers friend had authorization from the buyer to pick the item up.
2) The buyers friend picked the item up.
