Anyone from the RB crowd who knows and trusts me care to be a PayPal go-between...?

Looking to pay for something, seller won't take a BACS payment, and I'm not PP'd up at present...

Idea being you pay them through PP, and I get the money into your account by BACS.

Nothing dodgy, and I'm sure one of you must trust me enough!


It's a UK based transaction.


Thanks,
BB.

I got screwed by Paypal and whenever I have won I have always requested that anything Should be paid by cheque or direct bank transfer. I have never had a problem of been denied due to the fact that the person wants the cash fore the goods are sent. The people I have dealt with on RB have been excellent and very honourable .

Odd that they won't accept a bank transfer, being as they're arguably far less hassle than a PP transaction.

Thanks guys for both the posts here and the PMs.

I have decided not to pursue the transaction, but I appreciate the offers of assistance.


Cheers,
Tom.
