    That's an easy slam dunk. Call PayPal.

    Thanks. Does he need to call them, or just wait and see?

    Call, thats a no brainer. First attach a screenshot of the FB saying he got it.

    What Spoo said. You never want to just "wait and see" in a situation like this. It's best to be aggressive in dealing with these types of lowlife scammers.

    Also, for everything, you HAVE to call or you will never, ever win. They auto-side with the buyer on anything you try to email. I've even emailed evidence WHILE on the phone.

    I didn't even know there was a "remove all photos" option. My solution was to hold the shift key and click "duplicate listing", which makes an identical listing, only without any photos. Then delete the first listing. But, yeah, don't need to do that anymore!

    OK basic question (I guess), I'm thinking of moving to Basic Store (soon) for listings (from just the 50 free). I went through the Fee illustrator and ran some simulations and it looks good. But I'm wondering if I should start with a fresh account. Most of that eBay feed back was from things unrelated to clothing/shoes or personal purchases.

    The benefits I see are:
    Keeping my menswear thrifting hobby separate from any other finances.
    Having a separate PayPal account with debit card to keep easy track of sales/purchases/profits etc.
    Using my regular account for the odd random item or three I might sell.

    Drawback: 0 Feedback.

    Any thoughts?

    If you start from scratch on a new account, ebay would likely limit either the number of items you can sell per month or the $ value of items you can sell per month (I think everyone starts at $500 or so). Maybe those restrictions could be waived if you get a store right away, but you might want to ask them first.
