My bad if this thread distracted you guys from the more interesting off-topic threads, but I figured since there's a lot of buying & selling going on here, you guys would be my best bet for help.
Basically, I bought an item that wasn't sent, and I've escalated the claim to Paypal. No tracking number was provided, so it should go in my favor. What I wanted to know was: Would PayPal still be able to enforce the mandatory refund if the seller's account is unverified? Unverified means it isn't attached to his bank account, so I'm assuming that he would have to have funds in his account for the refund to go through, and, assuming that he's a smart scammer, he most likely withrdew all the money I sent him already.
But yeah, the question is:
Can Paypal enforce a refund from an unverified seller?
Does anyone know if Paypal holds paid money in the unverified seller's account until the buyer verifies "receipt of item"?
Thanks and sorry; I know you guys hate questions.
