    Default YET Another Warning about PP GIFT Payments

    Repgeek STRONGLY discourages the use of pay pal gift payments for many reasons namely:

    1 - It is against pay pal rules and will have your account frozen if you abuse it.
    2 - It leaves you no fall back if anything goes wrong.
    3 - The fees are still paid, just not by the receiver of the funds, in this case the "buyer" (gifter) pays the fees, you don't avoid any fees at all.

    If you must use this method of payment for some reason (even though we can't think of any) please do so at your own risk and only with someone you totally trust or have dealt with before.

    Same goes for payments through western union and moneygram, they are the preferred method of payment of scammers because you have no fall back if the deal goes sour. Use these methods only when you trust the seller.

    If the seller insists on paypal gift and has little or no feedback and/or you don't know him or dealt with him before, walk away. Better safe then sorry.

    Unfortunately there are scammers anywhere and although we here at RG have a heavy hand a a proactive approach on scammers, however, we won't be able to get rid of all of them, so do your part in ensuring that your deals are as safe as they can be.

    Also paypal is not too gift friendly. Its difficult to explain that you receive so many gifts from your friends worldwide.

    I try to tell people...i know from experience your account will get cancelled for too many gift receipts and sends.
    Happened to me and 2 other people I know.

    Maybe we should ban gift payments altogether.

    Yes, good idea.

    I have no problem with not authorizing "Gift" transactions.

    Despite Staff warnings everywhere I still get "I paid by PP Gift but....." PMs all the time. I really hate telling the guys they are on their own and the most we will do is ban the offending member.

    The current situation (as I explained in another thread on the matter):




    The official stance is that it is not 'Banned' per se

    But


    Any transaction employing PP Gift payment is NOT subject to any resolution help from the Admin team. IE if you use that route and it goes pear shaped you row yourself out of it.


    PP Gift is NOT for purchases - they find out (or suspect) misuse, bye bye PP account - its really that simple. Anyone relying on their PP account would neither send or accept Gift payments. If you need 100% safe no comebacks payment then thats why God created WU and Moneygram.

    I had this happen to me last week. Good thing I got it cleared up. I called them and told them I was making some straps for his Rolex. They bought it.

    Toro...have you thought about maybe sending paypal requests versus having people just send payments? This way you have some control over whats in the request versus people putting in their own info.
