On three occasions, I have sold items to people who have paid for their items with Paypal then Paypal have subsequently taken the money back out of my account citing that the buyer was being investigated for "fraudulent use".

As all three times, it was proven that the buyer was acting fraudulently, usually by way of stolen credit cards, the funds were never returned to me.

According to Paypal, there are two ways to avoid this: the first one is to hang on to the goods for at least four days before posting. Usually, Paypal contact you within 4 days if the paypal payment appears fraudulent.

Secondly, if you send all items by recorded delivery/registered post (so you have proof of delivery and not just proof of postage) then you can claim the refund (less postage) back from Paypal.
