An eBay Scam or a Legit Seller?
I saw a listing for an iPhone 7 Plus 256GB on eBay in my country (which is the Philippines). The device looks mint and it’s only selling for around $130.
However the deal-breaker start with the seller, which is a very new account, only made on May 25, 2021 (as of writing it is May 30) and only has one 5-star rating as a seller.
However, the seller accepts PayPal as payment which is the dealmaker for me, as I am aware of PayPal’s Buyer Protection policy which would help me ask for a refund if in case I don’t receive the device and the seller is indeed a scammer.
My question is, if ever I purchase the device through PayPal, will I be vulnerable to some sort of scam even if PayPal has a Buyer Protection policy? Any pointers that I should take note to avoid getting scammed? Any help is much appreciated. Thank you!
