    What to do when someone wants to see your PayPal information.

    I was talking to a few people, pretending to be a company, when one asked to see the companies PayPal account. I shat myself. I had made up a company so of course they didn't have a PayPal account.

    After a bit of delaying I thought up a brilliant idea. Use an eBay account!

    What I did was I looked on eBay, just typed in WoW Gold and looked for someone who was selling items. I then told the person I was trying to scam that this eBay information was mine (the guy had like 99% positive feedback) And my victim fell for it.

    So. Go to eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices Then type in WoW Gold (or something along those lines)

    Look for a seller. I personally used eBay My World - wow_guide_now

    This is how my conversation went with the guy I was scamming.

    WoW Accounts says:
    I'm sorry sir. Off the record, I do think that our new policy is rather ridiculous, don't tell the boss I said that!
    WoW Accounts says:
    Payments can take up to 24 hours (on rare occasions) But money is usualy sent within the first 20 minutes of the sale being made.
    WoW Accounts says:
    Sir, I'm not trying to rush you, this is a big decision to make, but I do have a few more customers to speak to before my shift is over. Did you still want to make the sale?
    Triple Sicx says:
    No
    Triple Sicx says:
    I dont like the whole idea of not being able to check your Paypal account before making the transfer
    Triple Sicx says:
    Im hearing too much about people making fradulent transfers via Paypal
    WoW Accounts says:
    I understand, there are alot of scammers out there. The sole reason why we are not able to disclose information is for our own security. We were recently hacked and our policy has gone under a reconstruction to make sure it doesn't happen again.
    WoW Accounts says:
    We do have an Ebay account that you could look at if that would make you more comfortable?
    Triple Sicx says:
    Yes if thats possible
    WoW Accounts says:
    eBay My World - wow_guide_now
    WoW Accounts says:
    Does this make you feel more comfortable?
    Triple Sicx says:
    Yes very much so.

    This method completely changed the outcome of how this ended up! I ended up getting the account thanks to this!

    So if ever this question arises, just use this method.
