Yesterday, I was ripped off because I didn't put on my thinking cap. Don't make my mistake please.
I needed to do an exchange with a complete stranger. He said I should send the funds through paypal choosing 'gift' as the option...I learn't later that that was the most stupid thing I've done in recent years.
Long story short. Immediately after sending the said money, the guy backed off and I reported to paypal immediately. Then I learn't my lessons...
Ones money is sent as gift with paypal, you can't open a dispute over it! This was the bomb!
Lesson Learn't- Never send business deals funds as a gift using paypal.
Never do business with someone with reputation.
Never get emotional while doing business- this is my main undoing. I trusted the guy thinking everyone's like me.
Do your due diligence before transacting business, don't push transactions, use your thinking cap. Anyone can scam. Beware!
That's my ordeal. I'm sure it'll make up my experience and it'll never repeat itself again. Please fellow warriors, DON'T GET SCAMMED!!!
