I hate to be the one to say "Told ya" =D
Haha jk, glad it worked out for you.
No one I know ever encountered an issue with Paypal, so I can only say good things about them. Even my grandparents get refunded for fraud Celine Dion DVDs haha
My mom also got a ring online, it was supposed to be 24K and she got a notice later on saying that it wasn't real. I think the owner still sent it to her, but Paypal refunded her money regardless.
