''Pending'' refund?

Long story short, I got scammed. I filed with paypal and escalated. The next day I see I have a refund from the seller but it's ''pending'' and still is as of right now.
Why would a refund be pending through paypal? Wouldn't it be instant?? I'm so nervous I won't get my money back. This was a gift for my daughter for Christmas so I really need the money back ASAP to purchase her something else.

Re: ''Pending'' refund?

they may have spent the money in their PP already so it needs to clear from their bank account? thats my best guess

That's my guess too. I issued a partial refund once because I was super late getting something out but I had spent most of what was in pp. PP had to take out $1-2 from my bank to cover the partial and it took a couple of days for it to go through.

I paid using paypal but with my credit card. I just have a feeling this refund won't go through....there are multiple other mamas that got scammed by her as well and I have a feeling the money won't clear her account. I wonder if my credit card would protect me at all? I NEED this money back.

Re: ''Pending'' refund?

If they had sent their PP to their account already it will take a few days to clear. I've had that happen to me before. But I wasn't scamming anyone. In this case I'm not too sure.

PP is trying to pull it from her account/s. You should also be able to claim from your CC if you don't get your refund.

I believe that in a situation like this PP will credit your account even if they can't get the funds from the seller and hold her account in default.

I believe your credit card would protect you from this. Give them a call.

paypal will likely refund you even if it doesnt clear her account, generally i think they give you the money back and go after the sellers themselves
