Hi, I have bought many items off Ebay, but currently I am negotiating to buy a horn from someone in one of the forums (not SOTW), and the transaction will be paid through Paypal.
As this is the first time I am buying direct from a buyer, and not through Ebay, I would like to know if the Paypal buyer protection would cover me in case this buyer does not send the horn after payment? Or if the horn were somehow a wreck, instead of being in the condition described? I intend to ask him to raise a Paypal invoice, so the deal is properly documented. Then I'll have something to back up my claim, in case things go wrong with the deal, or it is some kind of scam.
I have been corresponding with the buyer, and he sounds decent enough, but still this is a stranger that I have never met or dealt with. This information would also be useful to me in future if I buy some stuff off SOTW (been close a couple of times, but the deals fell through)...
So anyone who can help to clarify this question, your help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
PS. I did try emailing Paypal, but they gave me some stock answer in their database that did not give a clear answer to this question.
