Be very careful when selling using Pay Pal. It is not as secure as they make out. I recently sold a mobile phone and the payment was made via pay pal and the money went into my account. I made a big mistake by trusting pay pal and thinking that I had been paid for the phone. I posted the phone to the buyer only to find out that I had received an email from pay pal telling me that they had taken back the payment from my account because it was fraudulent. I tried to stop delivery of the phone but pay pal and the police just were not interested. Apparently someone had hacked an Ebay and pay pal account! The problem is, in my experience, that Ebay and pay pal will do nothing to help in this situation.
DONT THINK THAT BECAUSE YOU HAVE RECEIVED A PAYMENT FROM PAY PAL THAT YOU WILL KEEP THE MONEY. IF IT TURNS OUT THAT PAY PAL HAVE BEEN CONNED THEN THEY WILL TAKE THE MONEY BACK AND LEAVE YOU WITH THE PROBLEM
PAY PAL IS NOT AS SECURE AS YOU MAY THINK
