I'm posting this as a warning to people trying to sell their Macs through Ebay and Paypal. Also, I'd appreciate any advice you may have for me. I put my mac pro on Ebay and someone used the "buy it now" option for $2,599.00 and asked if they could pick it up locally while still using paypal as the payment method. I agreed to these terms thinking that I have the protection of ebay and paypal on my side, but I was very wrong. I received the paypal email saying the transaction was complete, so I logged into paypal and confirmed that it was before agreeing to meet the buyer at a local McDonald's. He seemed like a nice guy and didn't seem to mind that I was late to meet him and after the exchange, I went home a happy seller. 3 days later, I get an email from paypal saying that I will not get paid because the buyer reported an unauthorized access to his account. I'm not covered under the paypal seller's protection because I did not ship the item anywhere. The police wouldn't file a report because it is classified as a civil claims issue and no "crime" was committed. He said it was also not classified as fraud. So now I'm not sure if this ebay user just claimed not to have made the transaction, or if the guy I met just stole the ebay account password. I do have the guys cell phone number since I had to call him to coordinate the meeting. Is there anything I can do?
