Don't have full details, but basically that person cashed out money by letting other people use "his card" and they paid him cash, he himself didn't swipe the card, basically whoever gave him cash and used "his" card is now facing disputes on their purchases, I know of a person (not personal) that got thousands locked in his PayPal account because he used "this persons" card on his account and since the charge was disputed as unauthorized, PayPal locked all his funds...

Wow! Know a school that had thousands (over $50,000) locked in with such a story!

I don't understand. He let person A swipe his card, and that guy gave him cash for the purchase. Who disputed the charge ?

Reuven gave Shimon his CC to use, Shimon went to Levi and told him let me swipe my card by you and pay me cash for the purcahse, Levi wasn't aware that it is really Reuven's card and that he may face any sort of risk he went and used the card at PayPal, end of the story, Shimon didn't pay Reuven, Reuven disputed the PayPal charge, Levi's PayPal account got frozen...

I think the lesson here is don't be a colossal idiot. Nothing to do with MS or anything, some people just do really stumping things without thinking about the consequences.

You should have spelled this out in your initial post, no one understood this situation from your initial post.

So basically Reuven wanted to get some points, so he asked Shimon to swipe for him.

Was Shimon a con man? Or did something happen to shimon that he couldn't payback?

I dont know his story but the story that i know of was very similar. They owed tuition and the school was not willing take another child (a younger child). So they borrowed a credit card from someone and promised to pay the person back.
One month later they did a dispute since he did not pay back and locked up his PP account with over $50,000. The school had just ordered new stuff for school and had a big CC bill himself...

Wanna hear something crazy?

Parts of this story sounded strangely familiar for some reason. Turns out I'm Levi......

And who is the 'friend'?
Why would Levi risk paying cash for the cc swipe? How much did he earn? It is worth the audit risk?
