Filing a claim when money was sent gifted

Has anyone seen PayPal refund when the money was sent gifted? I called and they opened a claim since the seller asked me to send it that way. Do you thibk they will side with me? Its almost $500. I already feel stupid so please be nice. I have ordered from this person before without issue.

Paypal won't refund you.

I don't think pp will do anything since it was sent as a gift. Sorry but I think you are just out the money.

Even though they opened a claim and gave her 10 days?

Gave her 10 days to refund you? Send the goods? Respond to the case?

I'm just too puzzled... and curious what kind of situation would lead one to gift almost $500 to a seller, even one they've dealt with before...

Had she already sent you the goods, maybe?

To respond or provide some kind of tracking. He said they would refund me if she dowsnt respond. So far she's ignoring everyone.

Well, I guess if Paypal told you that, then you have no reason to believe otherwise. Although it seems pretty unbelievable customer service on their part....

Re: Filing a claim when money was sent gifted

And to be honest, if I were the recipient of gifted money and the buyer opened a case against me I'd be pretty PO_ed. The reason this strikes a chord with me is that the only times I ask for gifted payment is when a local buyer comes to buy something from me. If they don't have enough cash I let them send paypal, but I ask for it to be sent gifted, which they always do, since they have the item in hand.

In fact, JUST TODAY, I sold a $650 item on craigslist and the buyer came with a checkbook, and I asked for gifted paypal instead, which they gladly did.

To think I could be out the money for an as-is local sale, when gifted funds - which paypal stipulates is NONREFUNDABLE - that makes me a bit upset.

I've read before people have got refunds for gifted. But the amounts were much less.
