How well does paypal protect you as a seller?

I just made a sale to someone with no feedback. I was once new so I don't necessarily discount this. But then I looked back at her previous posts and I noticed that all of her posts (every last one of them) going back a little over a week, were in FSOT for buying various different kinds of diapers. It's a lot for just a week's time and there are no posts that are outside of FSOT.

Perhaps she is new to CDing and just trying out various things, but what I sold her is not an amount thats just for trying. Should I be worried about this? How well does paypal protect me? Her address is confirmed, if that means anything. Is there any chance I could end up out my items and out the money?

I wouldn't think so, as long as you described the items correctly, and with delivery conformation she can't say she didn't receive the items. I'm sure everything is fine, I bought a bunch of diapers immediately when I first joined DS, which wasn't long ago.

Yeah, you're probably right. I hate to be suspicious of anyone. I'm just BROKE so I cannot afford to be out the money. But I certainly don't want to punish someone because they are new. I'm sure I'm worrying for nothing.

I think that if you accurately described your diapers, ship to the PP addy and get DC you are good to go, like you said we all start somewhere

shes probably just trying to get a good a variety to find out what she likes
