Still another PayPal Ebay scam...gotta love this one

so my friend sells a motorcycle part on ebay to Africa... As soon as he sees the location of the buyer , he knows the buyer is either a fraud or the postal thieves will grab it,, So he goes to his Paypal acct to legitimately refund the "buyer" ....what does paypal do?? they charge a fee to refund the money to the buyer , then a triple whammy... paypal charges his bank account the amount of money of that he technically sold it for because according to paypal , the Afrikans money had not been collected to refund the afrikan buyer... smooth crooks...and 3, ebay charges a fee for selling it even though he refunded the "buyers" money...
my advice
DO NOT EVER accept paypal for more than you can afford to lose, for me its $500... you will get zero to little help resolving problems w paypal or ebay...
DO NOT EVER sell or ship to South America, Mexico, Asia , (Japan is Ok, ) Spain, ..Africa,.Russia, Ukraine, never the middle east...Your asking for it....
DO NOT EVER and I MEAN DO NOT EVER LINK YOUR BANK ACCOUNTS OR CREDIT CARDS to PAYPAL...you are asking for it,,,DO NOT EVER LET THEM HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL BANKING,, WHEN fraud hits your account , they r going to do little to nothing to help you, you are going to battle it out w a new customer service person every time , re-explaining  the whole mess every time
Always ship w signature required and delivery confirmation!
i personally will only ship to Europe, France , Netherlands, Germany , Belgium, Scandinavia, the UK, thats it...
if your foreign buyer cannot pay from a bank to bank wire transfer,, DO NOT BOTHER, this is how honest folks do business, .NO WESTERN UNION etc...DONT DO IT.
Scammers overseas love the loose policies of Ebay n Paypal,,, you send out a $2000 laptop w signature required,delivery confirmation etc,, they recieve it, keep it, they file a "not as described" case aginst you , they ship back a box of diapers ,..as long as they provide Paypal or Ebay a tracking number that it was shipped,, they get reimbursed, now they have the item n they have your money... Think you are gonna get any genuine help from paypal or ebay??? think again... you will talk to a different person every time , re explaining from a to z your experience..... love to hear your ebay paypal horror stories

Hi, I live in Panama, Central America, I bought 2 bikes from United States and there was no problem. There's a lot of people buying motorcycles from USA to Panama and nobody have any problem.
