I bet he wished he knew about this forumn LOL. So here a question I always wondered about. When does Paypal/EBay go after scammers? Is there a certain amount they go after cause I know it happens a lot,even happened to me a few years ago $250 item and ended up with a box of rocks. Of course PayPal refunded me but do they then go after seller or just right it off??

I believe so. They probably use all the info on the account and call the locals.

This isn't the 1st time I hear someone getting busted!

Absolutely not. Do you really think Paypal is going to call the cops on every $250 case?

PayPal DON'T as a rule report negative balances to local law enforcement.

Whenever you see people in trouble, it's not because PP have reported.

A headline "Man wanted for 21000 scam on eBay" etc etc has so much negative publicity for the brand, and it's hugely unlikely they'll get the money back anyway.

They'd rather spend their time fighting against fraud with new technology.

That'll make more in the long term.

I had my regular (checking account as you USA guys would call it) debit card fraudulently used recently for over 4000. The bank here in the UK didn't wish to report to the police, and when I made the call to local police they wouldn't even listen to me because I wasn't a victim because I'd been refunded by the bank. The bank were the ones out of pocket, they had to report (which they were not prepared to do).

Crazy.

I'm assuming that's how it is here in the US too.

It is doubtful that eBay and PayPal report every minor loss to law enforcement, as a sale gone wrong is not necessarily a criminal act. But taking in thousands of dollars and not delivering, selling thousands of dollars worth of counterfeits, or using other deceptive techniques probably WOULD be reported.

Once law enforcement gets a hold of a case, what they do with it is up to them. eBay and PayPal don't "go after people" so to speak, that is left up to the whatever arm of law enforcement the case is referred to. And how they choose which cases to pursue isn't advertised anywhere. So, nobody can tell you it is safe to defraud people up to X amount. And that shouldn't be the goal anyway.
