PayPal last year just introduced a new policy, called the 'PayPal Holding Policy'.
PayPal told that they will hold the money you are sending and not send it to the party until you've received and inspected, so if that is the case, then I don't see how someone is going to scam you if you use PayPal, what do you think?
The reason I'm asking about all this is that I've found some companies selling Apple Macbooks at TradeKey;
While I know that many of these are probably scams, the thing is one company sent me the serial numbers of the Macbook laptops and prices and they were for 1-3 year old laptops.
These were the prices on those laptops;
Macbook 13 inch 360USD each pcs,
Macbook 15 inch 410USD each pcs,
17 inch 490USD each pcs,
I've checked online and a macbook that is 2-3 years old might only be close to these prices, while they seem a bit low, I don't think they are really ridiculous, given they are a few years old...
So could there be also be legitmate vendors in China that have older back stock they purchased somewhere and have a huge bulk inventory, where you might see prices like this on 2-3 year old back stock?
So how is someone going to scam us if PayPal is going to hold the money until the merchandise is inspected? This seems like it's going to be really hard...
