Thanks.
Apparantly paypal can reverse a transaction at any time!!
So really it could happen even after a few weeks.It is not as secure as they try to make it sound.
They told me to report it to the police.The Police say it is down to PayPal to sort it out.

Everything is made to be so complicated.Thats how they get away with it.

I think from now on I will email the buyer to confirm purchase and delivery details at least their might be a way to track the email or IP address if something goes wrong.
