I sold my father in laws laptop last week on Ebay, for £385 which was about what he needed. The final buyer only registered on the day paid my paypal with an instant payment, presumably a credit card. Feeling happy that I was paid I sent the Laptop to his address insured recorded delivery with tracking. Having now looked further at other anti paypal sites I think that if the machine was bought with a stolen credit card then paupal will take the money back off me. Is this correct. If the cards abuse is not noticed until the next statement, potentially I need to worry for another month, How safe is paypal. To wait for a cheque in the post and then clear it must be the only safe way?
