    Hey there,
    I was scammed on Paypal upon a transaction for a digital item. Now I am in 2k negative balance. I am in country Georgia, it is a third world country. Will they be able to come after me? They have my kinda real info. They have my first and last name and probably an ID number, I don't remember if I indicated that.
    Any replies would be highly appreciated!

    All businesses risk fraud or theft. Build this into your business plan and financials.
    Do not expect another business to pay for your business loss - if you do then you are no better than the person who scammed you.

    If Paypal let you sign up in Georgia, then that means that they have the ability to go after you for the money there. You had to give them your bank account information, I presume so they know who you really are. How hard they go after you for $2,000 is an interesting question, but they may take some steps. You should definitely file a claim with them with evidence of how you were scammed, etc., and that may help.

    But @sarahk is right: you have to expect to occasionally be scammed and be sure to include that in your financial planning. Of course, you should also take all steps to educate yourself about scamming in your business so that you can avoid scammers as much as possible.
