Just out of my own interest, what kind of scams are possible using PayPal? I ask because I'm currently dealing with a scammer and I've acquired his PayPal address.

I don't know if the mods want me to say this but they can delete this post if it's not good..

A big scam is to purchase something using paypal, likely on ebay, and then dispute it for some reason. A big thing is to say it's counterfeit, ebay/paypal folds pretty hard and fast on that one.

There are tons of methods they use though.

Is there anywhere I can report the address to PayPal? I'm 100% certain its being used for scamming purposes.

What makes you so sure? Many people just want to pay for something with Paypal, it's pretty safe and sometimes a pretty dumb modality for scamming compared to the less traceable methods.

It is possible though. There is a contact form on Paypal, I haven't used it in a while.

What makes me certain is the following situation:

I replied to a Canada-based classified ads site about purchasing a Playstation 3. I e-mailed the seller. The seller responded with certain characteristics that are common amongst scammers. They are:

1. Bad grammar
2. Not answering my questions
3. Immediately asking for my shipping address
4. The seller also resides in Florida. What's she doing on a Canadian site?
5. The seller wants me to send the money via PayPal and then I'll have the items shipped later

The deal itself was also too good to be true - and it was. I reported the ad as illegal and the site actually took it down. A few hours later...same ad comes back up with the exact same description word-for-word. I'm exchanging e-mails with the scammer now. Any way to find out where he/she is e-mailing me from? I'm using G-mail...

Thanks so far, man!

No problem! I can see how that is suspicious.

http://headertool.apelord.com/

In GMAIL, go to one of their e-mails and next to reply there should be a little arrow, click on that then click 'view original' or something similar.

After that copy the beginning all the way down to where it just has two little lines or something.. I think you will be able to figure it out.. I am totally out of it right now. I can't really remember... Sorry haha..

Paste that into the site above and the last IP is /probably/ the originating locale.. although I think if /they/ are using GMAIL or some other place that strips IPs it might not work right. I've never gotten any scammy e-mail that wasn't from @yahoo or @live though.

Ok, so to clarify:

There is a whole chunk of text. I should copy-paste all of it? The header tool keeps saying "content too large to post". Thanks for the help so far, friend.

That's why I mentioned copying to a certain point. I believe just before the message is about two lines of some stuff.. You want to copy from the very top of the 'original message' to the two lines.

I figured out which IP was the scammer's without pasting it all. Thanks friend. Apparently the IP originates in Canada, and yet the scammer claimed to live in Florida.

EDIT: the scammer has sent me a pic himself now, too. I wonder whose MySpace he got the pic off of...

Log on to your pay-pal account and click "resolution centre" then follow the links..
Having someone's Account address is nothing unusual, If at any time you get into a dispute over a purchase, or are having trouble getting a payment. Pay Pal will supply the other party's address and phone number, to enable you to try and sort it out directly with the other party.

You can even speak to a Pay pal phone operator [ Mumbi ] to sort out account problems.

But if you think someone is using Pay Pal in a scam, and can supply evidence of this. pay pal will and do act.

Last IP is the one you want: 41.207.162.1

It comes back to Togo Telecom in the lovely country of Togo.

It's a lad and it's a scam.
