Default Just sold my Mugen Valve Cover...

I just sold my Mugen Valve cover. The guy messaged me on Facebook, then sent me a payment through paypal under friends and family.

Considering that there was once a dispute on paypal where the buyer claimed to get a replica instead of the real one, and got a full refund at the seller's expense, what can I do to protect myself from such an action?

I am considering having a notary there when I pack and ship the item, so there is something notarized stating the real one was shipped.

Any thoughts?

What's a notary going to do? They aren't qualified to make that determination.

Friends and family, you are pretty safe. It's a much bigger hassle to get money back as a buyer through that method.

What I usually do for buyer's I'm worried about is record and photograph the shipping process. It's come in handy once before.

Not only that, but to notarize it properly, both parties have to be there and sign in front of the notary for it to be official. Not sure how this helps in your situation...

srs, isn't it like 3%? I think it was something like $50 when I bought my regas. How is that not worth the protection?

When sending friends and family the buyer is left with no protection, not the seller.

https://www.paypal-community.com/t5/.../842173#M20952

I just sold an NSX car cover for $580 shipped and to save $20 on fees and keep the price under $600 the buyer asked if he could just send it friends and family. Seemed like a odd choice for the buyer, but hey its on him not me.

that's what I'm saying. I'd almost feel obligated to rip them off just to teach them a lesson.

If you use a credit card and send it as friends and family you can still dispute it all the same. Just through CC company not PayPal. Either way what do you expect a notary to do? Roll the dice and mail it if you dare.

Someone tag Bryce and let him know I'm going to dispute my SI lip purchase with him. Jk

FYI PayPal directly reimbursed me for a credit card purchase via friends and family for a mixer that I got scammed on, didn't have to go to my credit card company at all.

so much this. And take lots of pictures. Not video. Paypal will not accept video as proof. Pics of the part and you packaging it up. And then send with signature confirmation to the confirmed address in his paypal listing.

I'm with the guys above saying refund the money and have them send it as payment for goods. When you're dealing with something as (presumably) expensive as a Mugen valve cover, it's best you CYA.

And then with even doing it the way I suggested. He could still come back saying not authentic and then you have to get a letter from Mugen saying that it is before they will possibly refund you.

I have a notary who is pretty legit. I was considering having her come with me to the Post Office, and confirm the item that was placed in the package and shipped was the same as the item in a photo.

So just having her as a third party witness stating the actual item was shipped, not a different item.
