Caveat Emptor.

Self preservation is nobody's business but your own. Never rely on anybody else to take care of that for you.
I learned that the hard way when buying from some so-called verified firm in Hong Kong.
And in the end paypal did very little to help me.

Check the seller's transaction history. If it is extensive and positive then you are safe. Otherwise you certainly have some risk.

I guess PayPal helps identify who the people are but that says nothing about how the people may conduct business, especially newer sellers.

Unless they specifically telling you in your account that the transaction is verified, they will not provide very good coverage for you. And In any circumstances you need to use appropriate due diligence.

Yes, you are taking your chances.

Make sure you carefully study all the terms and conditions and remedy procedures.

However, buyers seem to do better these days then sellers.

What is it you are buying?

Some things just shouldn't be bought online, especially used stuff of any appreciable price.

I wish to inform you that you may read the terms and conditions for Buyer Protection on the PayPal Website. You may also call their Customer Service and ask any questions or queries in your mind. Thereafter, you may take a decision in the matter.
