Before paying via PayPal as "Gift"...

Remember, that paying as "gift" removes your protection as a buyer, because paypal sees it as nothing disputable if it was a gift.
This leaves the door WIDE open for someone to screw you on a transaction with you left no available options to dispute and get your money back.

If we catch anyone openly requesting to be paid as "gift" then it will be treated as if they're trying to take someone for their money and the thread will be closed, deleted or edited accordingly. I know that many are doing it because paypal fees, despite being in terms and conditions that all who use it agreed to, are ball-bustingly high these days (<--sarcasm). As a staff, we are tired of the PM that goes:
[user] never sent me something I paid him for and says I never paid, when I sent the money to him on [date], but he asked me to mark it as "gift" so I wouldn't have to pay fees. Can you give me his real name, address, phone number, SSN, birthdate and city of birth so I can file a police report?
For the record, the ONLY information we have on any user is an email address and DOB, if you paid via paypal, you have more information on them than we do. So don't ask.

At the end of the day, if you trust a stranger enough with your money to give it to them in a manner that you are not protected, then you are partially in control of your own peril.
