you can start by filing a claim with Paypal.......

I'm hoping you didn't fall for the F&F option, you paid as goods, right? If not you could be SOL.

My friend informed this morning that I am probably SOL like you say.

Friends & Family payment can be reversed by your credit card company

Possibly by your bank if you linked a bank account or pulled the funds from a bank account.

I recently bought a SWFA scope from a great Yellow member & paid using Paypal friends & family.

USPS showed it as delivered but it wasn't at my "front porch" like USPS tracking said online (I don't have a front porch).

I realized it had probably been left at a house that is on a closely named street with the same number address that's a couple of miles away, so I drove over & there was my scope on their front porch!

Then I started thinking...what if I hadn't figured it out & didn't go get my scope?

I had paid by friends & family, so my only recourse would have been to work something out with the seller (even though it wasn't his fault), or contact the credit card company I had linked to my Paypal account & get a chargeback thru them.

I don't think friends & family is a good idea for purchases, no matter who you are buying from.

For $4 extra bucks per hundred dollars, buy the transaction protection.

With people regularly stealing packages off porches I'm glad you didn't
get busted for stealing your own package. wink.gif

True. I rang the bell but no one lives there now

turns out it's being repaired for a mold problem, so insurance has them living in a condo during the repair.

I saw a neighbor watching me, so I drove over & introduced myself, then showed her my package, my id, & explained what had happened.

She was angrier about it than I was (I was just happy I'd figured it out...& surprised...it was 5:30 on a Friday so I might not have talked to anyone at the PO about it until Monday) & she promised to let the postman have it when she saw him. Turned out the postman was a temp filling in.
