PayPal warning: Paying someone you don’t know? DON'T use ‘family and friends’

PayPal customers encouraged by sellers to make payments via its 'friends and family' option instead of 'goods and services' are unnecessarily leaving themselves without payment protection - and some are even losing cash.

PayPal's system allows users to select between making a payment for 'goods or services' - which comes with Buyer Protection should something go wrong - or 'family and friends' which is essentially a money transfer and does not offer protection.

...the message on this is clear and simple: if someone selling you goods or a service asks you to send a friends and family payment, you should refuse. Otherwise you won't be reimbursed if something goes wrong.
