    Website buyer - Paypal scam

    A while ago this guys named Alex Hunter, sitepoint ID: themainman (office@fusionwebspace.com) who agreed to purchase my site PhotoshopNation for $800.

    http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?t=303411

    He end up sending me a 435.13 GBP, value of $749.82 USD , promising me will finish the rest of the payment soon.

    After I transfered the domain and files over, he filed a claim to paypal trying to scam this transaction and get my website for free.

    Here's the proof of domain transfer. And I can have paypal investigator to witness me giving him the access infomation to my FTP to download all the files too.

    Will I be able to get over this stupid claim without issue a refund?
    I gave him exactly (actually more than) what's stated on the listing too.

    Maybe there is a way you can get his IP from an FTP log or something? If you can get your hands on that you'll be golden.

    I don't know exactly how PayPal rules these things, but I'm assuming it's fairly similar to how the US government works? Innocent until proven guilty. At this point I would say there is no evidence to suggest you actually did ANYTHING wrong.

    You're not the first person he scammed on here, we had a long discussion about his not paying for a posting contest he ran.

    He had quite the stable of excuses for that one.
