So I am selling this Alienware laptop for $100, on craigslist right? So this idiot replies he will pay 350 dollars + postage via paypal so his son can have it. So he sends the money to my scambaiting PAYPAL account, and I immediately transfer it to my credit card and close my account. And I just got 350 bucks easy. However i did send the item to the scammer, but now he cant reverse jack shit. I am only 18 and this retard thinks i am stupid? Ha, thanks for the money scammer jackass.

If the money has hit your account, it's likely been paid for with a stolen credit card.

Legally, if the above is correct, you should be OK, but technically you've acted as a mule in a scam.

You may have closed your account, but there will be a record of the payment.
Next time, if you think it's a scam, walk away. Receive another payment and law enforcement may start wondering why you're receiving cash from stolen credit cards. Your "easy bucks" could land you in deep trouble.

Thanks for the heads up.

Receiving stolen money is a crime and you could be prosecuted. Don't take that risk next time, they got the electronic audit trail leading directly to you.

You also take the risk of having Paypal sue you after they are forced to refund the original victim's money back to their credit card. Again, they have the audit trail leading directly to you.
