PayPal Launches Safe Online Shopping Campaign

About a month ago, PayPal launched a campaign targetting Malaysian and Singapore users to educate us on the safety of online shopping, via payment with PayPal. This campaign utilised social media from Facebook to Twitter and YouTube.

The campaign isn't really that popular but it's still good that we are reminded of our rights as a buyer and if we paid using PayPal, under a lot of circumstances, we are protected.

However, don't forget that sellers are from time to time defrauded as well and when such a situation arises, usually, PayPal will side with the buyer. And even if the buyer is able to proof the case, he will be bogged down by red tape and it would take months for the money to return to him!
