Question about PayPal Accounts

2 Answers

$4900 has not been credited into my Visa Account

I am a seller of a Chevrolet motor car. I sent a money transfer via Western Union to pay for the pick up of the car. i.e. $860.00 yesterday.
PayPal emailed me to say the $4900 was in my PayPal account from the buyer, a Marine Engineer somewhere out at sea!! a Mr Todd Newberry.

When I last looked the $4900 had not been transferred into my Visa Card Credit Account.

Can you help?
Thanks,
Edwina Jane White

I have received a check from Medimpact Healthcare Systems, LLC. Is this legitimate?


The company is legit Judy, but there is no way to know if the check is.

Pay it into your bank. If anyone says it is a mistake, and can you refund the money via MoneyMart or Western Union, it is a scam, so ignore them and say you have contacted the bank and passed on all the details to them. Don't get into any conversations with them. In these days of smartphone banking, you can photograph the check top bank it and keep the original. You can then send it back if someone says it is a mistake :>)

There are scams that work like this. You get a check for some reason, you bank it. You are asked to pay most of it back minus an admin fee for your trouble. It seems like easy money for you. You pay them the money for the overpayment via Western Union. After one month, or even two months, the bank inform you either the account has been closed, or the check is fraudulent, a fake check. The bank take the money back, you are out of pocket for what you sent via Western Union, because with Western Union, there is no way to get the money back. They went into a Western Union shop, showed fake ID and walked away with your money.

I rec'd transaction email from Ebay Motors. Is payment via a prepaid eBay Gift Card a legitimate payment method? I just want to ensure that this is valid. Pls advise.


No it is not a valid way of payment. These scammers will use all sorts of ways to scam you out of money. I usually involves MoneyGram or Western Union.

I would say no to the deal, PayPal, credit card or nothing.

I want to transfer money to my doughters credit card, what do i have do


There are a number of things you can do:
[1] find out from HER how she normally makes payments on the credit card. (get her username/password if she does it electronically) then make the payment through one of your own accounts. she may have to verify your card on her account unless you've made a payment from this card before

[2] wire the money to her from western union (expensive) OR wire the money from your bank (not as expensive)...this is time consuming though cus you have to actually go up to your bank or whereever you do this to actually get it done

[3] transfer money from your bank/credit account to her bank account, then tell her to pay it with the money you've transferred.

[4] call the credit card company and make a payment over the phone. (this will probably be the surest and quickest way,,,depending on her credit card's customer service)

i've probly left some options out, but if i think of any i'll let you know

All scams use western union for cash transfer because you cannot claim it back.

You cannot open a UK bank account unless you are living in the UK!

Dublin is not in the UK!

Contact the hotel direct from their website to confirm any job offer http://www.dublin-skylon-hotel.com/ and telephone them if possible.

Ebay Payment Method


There are a number of ways to pay on eBay. Most sellers offer more than one option. Some payment options offer more protection than others, so be sure to select a method of payment that makes you feel comfortable.

If you have additional questions about payment options, you can contact the seller directly. You can find the seller's email address by clicking on the User ID in the listing or by looking in the End of Listing email that you received when the listing closed.

Sellers may not ask or require you to pay by instant cash wire transfer services such as Western Union or MoneyGram. They may not ask you to pay by cash. These payment methods are not permitted on eBay. Please refer to the Accepted Payments policy for details on permitted and non-permitted payment methods. Payment services that are not permitted on eBay may, in fact, be outstanding services for consumers in other contexts. eBay’s evaluation relates only to whether a particular service is appropriate for the eBay Marketplace. If a seller asks you to pay with a payment method that is not permitted on eBay, report the seller.

Clicking the Pay Now button is the fastest way to pay on eBay. Common payment methods available using the Pay Now button include:
  • PayPal
  • Credit Card
  • Personal checks, cashier's checks, or money orders
The seller may accept other types of payment methods involving escrow companies (recommended for high-price items) and bank-to-bank wire transfers. More information on each method of payment is provided below:
