This is the reason that I only do PayPal shipping and receive payment for "goods." It's worth the charges to have the shipping confirmation and PayPal support--just in case.

This "issue" has come up a few times before, unfortunately, because some people have had problems getting refunded when they sent payments as gifts.

I hope your situation works out, seamonster!
