I'm not into Twitter myself, but seems he was 're-tweeting' a day or so ago, which presumably requires some actual action on the part of the account holder?.

I've sent Twitter details to the OP rather than post here.

rewteeting can be automated.

A point earlier on this thread about not being able to pay by credit card with these sort of transactions - you can of course if the seller is willing to issue you a bill via paypal which then you can pay by credit card rather than logging in to paypal itself.

When I have engaged in private sales I always insist this is how I will pay and am usually happen to add on a couple of quid if the seller is twisting about paypal fees - i just see it as buying consumer protection.

I also note the guy in question was active on this site 7 hours ago at my time of posting.

Hope this got resolved in the end.

If he has a different take on things it would be good to hear it.

Am I looking at the wrong thing all this time? When I click on the user name and showing his portfolio, it still shows his last log in as 27th April 2017 - 09:49? Am I living in a different timeline?

You'd think a financial advisor would know when and when not section 75 of the consumer credit act applies and not give duff advice about his specialism. Professional, not!
So maybe Algi, you're right. The weblink in his profile links to his business site, not a photo site as others here do.

That's about section 75 credit card protection.

My point is a wider one by paying by PayPal for goods and not as a gift as many people ask for. Therefore you are protected by distance selling regulations.

By not logging in and using a credit card you can be sure you are paying for goods and not just doing a transfer that is recorded as a gift because PayPal don't allow gifts via this method.

No, you haven't. Let's have less of the insults please - send me a PM if anyone has doubts about a post.

Financial advisers are allowed to be photographers!

If you read my post I didn't give any 'duff advice' I never even mentioned section 75 as I know it doesn't apply, you're the one who brought it up. Not that it's something a financial adviser actually needs to know or deal in.

I have widened the point above though as to why you might want to use that method. Distance selling rules and to ensure payment hasn't gone through as a gift which would negate PayPal protection.

Thanks for the aggressive responses from yourself and alergenon though it's reminded me why I had stopped bothering with these forums.

His actual last post there was in July 2016, though I can see activity has been logged recently. Could that be caused by active tracking cookies on a PC he's used in the past without logging out and not necessarily by him on this occasion?
