Paypal is a means of payment just like a money order or cashiers check. It
is not in the business of arbitration. The means of payment is separate from
the transaction itself ... as it should be. This type of transaction gone
bad is probably something Yahoo should get involved with. If you mail off a
check to someone and it appears that fraud is involved, you don't really
think the bank will get involved do you?
