Paypal #1
I had a question about paypal FF.
I have a few things I need to sell at home for not a huge price but a few hundred dollars, I've gotten offers from people who are willing to buy the items and also go first in the transaction. My question is, is it possible for me to get scammed even if its through friends and family? Is there a even safer way? and is FF even safe at all from people refunding there money back?

Evidently, not If they're going first by depositing the funds Into your account.

Payment by the buyer, can be reversed by way of a chargeback through (for example) their bank or credit card provider.

Honestly, FF is decent but I've been able to complain to PayPal and had them start a case on my behalf (for a FF payment) without even getting my bank involved. It's always risky business dealing with PP tbh.

If the buyer charges back from their bank, does paypal lose the money or do I?

Friends and Family is safer, but won't protect you entirely from chargebacks. Many people refuse to accept Paypal outright because of this.

You do, typically. I've had one instance where PayPal ate the costs and credited my account the fund. Every other time I was in the negatives.

As stated above.

Predominantly, you will lose the funds.

if you are selling them to friends and family, why not use cash?
