the money is in my paypal account already as a completed transaction. also I wont have the money to send him until I can withdraw the money from paypal. wouldnt the payment has to be cleared before paypal let me withraw the money? if I was able to get the money, would this considered as money laundering?
sorry for kept bothering you. let me make this clear. I have bought something from him for $10,000 through paypal. He went back and refund my payment and ask me to get that money and wire transfer it to his bank account. now the fund is back in my paypal account. If that's the case you think it's safe for me to withdraw that money from paypal? I dont know what is his reason for doing this. Can he issue a refund if he doesnt have money in his paypal account?
