-1800$ Negative balance on Paypal !!

    Hello , i was scammed by someone I know , he asked to sell something for him on Paypal 2 iPhones to be exact as on eBay as Most of the credit cards in Morocco ( North Africa ) don't accept Paypal now and when I sold the iPhones on Paypal and gave his money which was about 1800$ and gave him the addresses of the buyer , I thought that was it and even forgot about it . Until the buyer that ended buying both iPhones opened unreceived claim i contacted the guy right away but stopped answering his phone number and couldn't join anywhere I tried contacting paypal but they were helpless ! Anyway they ended up giving the guy his money back and now I have -1800$ on my account and I can't pay it !
    So please tell me what can Paypal do in Morocco I know that in the us they send you to Debt collectors but I doubted it's the case and also can they sue me for fraud ?? Or they would just want their money back in which case what can they do if I can't pay it ?

    usually you and Paypal staff can communicate this by phone, clearing all the problems, and give them all your prove that you already sent that phone. by this way, they will trust you that you are on the right side!

    if the transaction is made via ebay, then you have to provide the tracking details. so paypal will ask the buyer to either return or will give back your money

    Ultimately it's not PayPal's problem. You had an error of judgement and gave someone money for something they hadn't done. Some of life's lessons are expensive. Suck it up, go to your friend's house, talk to his parents, his neighbours, do whatever it takes to embarrass him into paying you the money back.

    You've got a painful lesson.
    I'm not sure Paypal support will listen to your story. It doesn't matter for them. You've taken this risk and filed.
    But could you please clarify it was your friends' eBay account, right?

    Paypal can, and very well may, ban you for fraud - it was your friend to do it but you helped by violating their TOS. They would likely get a debt collector at some point, not quickly, but eventually; they have nothing to lose in doing so. (If this happens you can negotiate with the debt collector; often they'll settle for as little as 50-60%)

    What you should be doing now is suing this (former?) "friend" if he is ignoring you and you believe he never sent the phones, and he wont provide you with proof that he did so.

    This is sad that it happened to you. I saw a lot of threads on forums recently where people asked others to be the middle-man for such transactions. When you accept the money from people you are responsible for them to get their product they paid for.
