    Question [Help] Scammed | Paypal Balance Negative -$700.00+ | Potential Collection Effort :(

    Hello MPGH Community,



    Recently, I've been involved in a large amount of charge backs, the most recent ones were pretty huge. I intially started selling on MPGH to help raise funds for my sister's education. She is currently at a 2nd grade level while in Sophmore standing in High School. In other words, my sister is special needs. Small chargebacks were somewhat bare-able. However, at this time I don't think I can withstand such huge losses. I am not just asking for donations, though it would be helpful and appreciated. I'm asking for any and all help I can get to recover my balance to positive to avoid going into debt and potentially ruining my credit score due to being scammed.

    I've tried to resolve the dispute with Paypal, but I am told my transactions are not covered by their policy and they automatically favored the buyer due to this.

    I'm just lost in words, do scammers really think products, services, and money grow on trees? I treated all of my customer politely and respectfully throughout my run in the market place.

    I just want back, equivalent for what I sold. If anyone can help me recover my funds please let me know.
    Or even advice on ways I can quickly make money to pay off the negative balance as a result of being scammed.

    Here are pictures of the scammer, Andrew Chang .











    I made the decision to request and pleed for help after reciving this message from Paypal:

    "It is very important that you address the balance on your account today to ensure continued availability of your PayPal Account and to avoid additional collection efforts."

    I've also found the following information

    Hi @Royce

    At first, just $25.00 exchange Paypal -> Bitcoin. Then after several $100.00 transactions and an $200.00 transaction. I'll try see if I can find emails or phone numbers for his family members or himself, I'm having a hard time with find them.

    Thanks for your advice. /bow

    Did you use legit info for the PayPal, if not simply start over, and this time make sure to keep your money on another account,bank or even Bitcoin to be safe as Fck. Since I got chargeback quite a lot too, I simply converted them to Bitcoin and now i feel safe as ever.

    Hi @Heaven,

    Sadly I used legit information for my Paypal account. I now wish I hadn't because I've researched online Paypal does forward negative balance to collection agencies. I don't know what to do now... I provided the product & service, but payment is now reversed.

    I'll keep your advice in mind for the future though. Thank you. /bow

    Since you used your personal info, simply call paypal and tell them he scammed you. and I prefer you to get a proxy and use an alt paypal, so ask them to send it to the alt and from alt to main, and even if he chargebacks, since there is no money , and since it is alt, he'll simply fuck it up.

    Hi @Heaven,

    I'll try ring up Paypal, hopefully they can help me out. As the dispute/claim was concluded in the buyers favor. It was very weird for me, as I have the transaction records for the Bitcoin confirmations, which I provided. Thank you for your great advice!

    Np, I am quite experienced with this case this I had this myself, of course I wasn't at -$700 but still money is money
    so when trading in the note section did you ask your customers to write exchange? or something like that?

    Andrew Chang is a scammer. Yes, he charges back on tons of things. He scammed someone in the MP a while back and was banned. He scammed on behalf of @Gazz if I so recall correctly.

    I don't ask my customers to write notes. The few times I did, none of them wrote the notes, sadly.

    Hi @Arioch,

    Thanks for letting me know.
    If we all called his school, do you think this would work out? I really don't want to go into debt or ruin my credit score. I did some digging and Paypal does forward negative balance to collection agencies...

    There are the schools contact numbers. Call in about him and report his behavior. Threaten to call the police etc and tell them you would like to talk to his parents about it and to email them to call the school and explain to them what happened.
