Paypal Gift Option Payments
Recently and of course in the past there have been some sale issues in our classifieds with regards to members being asked to Gift payments via Paypal for purchased items. I must urge all of you to NOT use the Gift option in Paypal for payment.
Paypal will NOT offer protection against scamming or fraud if a payment is made using the Gift option. Please remember that using the Club Lexus Marketplace is done at the risk of the members. We will not take responsibility as an entity for sales/trades gone wrong.
Using Paypal as a method of payment offers you a level of FINANCIAL security that Club Lexus cannot. If you use the Gift option to pay for items/services then you are removing your own personal security net against scammers. While Paypal protection isn't always perfect, it is better than no protection at all. Do not let users persuade you to Gift a payment. If they are unwilling to accept the charges Paypal imposes, work that into your deal.
While we do our best to make sure Club Lexus has a safe Marketplace, there is only so much we can do to protect you. So please always take that step to further protect yourself by using Paypal and NOT using the Gift option. Remember this is the internet, it is not a secure environment.
