I just received 60$ from a unknown person per paypal.

I accepted the money, of course, but now I'm worried.

What would be if the account of the person got hi jacked and he'd just send the money to me to get not sued himself?

What should I do with the money now?

Need help :/

Send it to 30 other accounts of your own and put it in a bank account, then cancel the bank account and move away.

All for 60 bucks...Sure is worth it to me.

I'm no thief, lol.

If Paypal tells me to pay it back, I'll do so.

I just worried why a guy which I don't know sent so much money to me.

If paypal wants it back, they will just take it back.

If the account of this person really got stolen, will they be able to track the IP?

So I won't get owned for no reason, I hope.

Donate the cash to charity, or send the cash to Perma as a donation for him being such a kind guy and having a super-low-price on his maphack.

I'm no doctor, but it'd seem to me that you're suffering from Mental Retardation if you just give it to Perma. Just buy something nice for yourself, it's not that hard.

What about Perma the starving college student? Or Fred the contractor who works twelve hours a day to barely make enough money to survive? I don't mean to sound apathetic, but people have been starving all over the world since time began. A few bucks isn't going to change that, ever.

Even if hundreds are dying, you're saving that one life. That's one less life that decays on the rotting earth. One less life that could have been your own.

If you just donate to them instead of teaching them how to make food/money, they will eventually depend on you.

The point is, we're always going to be supplying these causes. The people there were fine before we started doing it, obviously, because they were still there. They will continue adapt and improve, much like we did. But not if we keep spoon feeding them.

Yes, there is a lot of unnecessary tragedy in some parts of the world that would be very uplifting to resolve. But it's just not going to happen with money, it takes action.

No seriously like they said I would keep it in the account for a period of time and if nothing happens take it and spend it! If nothing happens during that time then you shouldn't feel guilty.

Where did the subject of the money coming into his account become a donation?

Sir_Winkey
07-11-2007, 08:09 PM
Step 1: Read the title.

Step 2: Apply it to his post.

Bingo! You have a donation. When a random amount of money comes from an unkown source in paypal when not given for a product or service, typically it constitutes a donation.

One day a man was walking along the seashore. He noticed that during the night many seashells and starfish had washed upon the beach. Thoroughly enjoying the morning sun and cool sea air, the man walked for miles.
As he strolled along, he noticed a small figure dancing in the distance. It made him chuckle to think of someone celebrating life in such an uninhibited way. As he drew closer, however, it became apparent that the figure was not dancing. Instead, she seemed to be repeatedly performing some ritual.
He drew nearer still and noticed that the small figure was a child. She was methodically picking up starfish and tossing them into the surf. He paused for a moment, puzzled, then asked, "Why are you throwing these starfish?"
"It's high tide," she replied, "If I leave them on the beach, the sun will soon dry them and they will die. I am throwing them into the ocean so they can live." The man considered her actions, impressed with the child's thoughtfulness. Then he motioned up and down the miles of the beach. "There must be thousands of starfish along here," he said, "you cannot possibly make a difference."
The young girl stopped. Her face darkened. She chewed thoughtfully on her lower lip, "You're probably right," she said softly. She looked down at the sand. Then she leaned over, carefully picked up another starfish, pulled back and arched it gently into the sea.
With a tone of gentle defiance, she said, "But I made a difference for that one."

Taking your money, strolling over to a third world country and handing a family some coin is one thing. These massive donation funds buy products in wholesale, ship it over there, and don't give a damn who gets what.

Like pigs at feeding time. Yeah, that's really helpful to them. If we really want to make a difference, educate the population on how to provide for themselves instead of providing for them.

i kind of agree.

the fact is, while yes it is a nice thing to hope for...
Us sending money to people Across seas like that is Pointless.
Its not helping them AT ALL. if anything its hurting them.
They Depend on us too much. like someone else said,
They were surviving on there own be-for we came.

My experience with economic development policy has led me to a few answers oh though this is off topic from the original (receiving funds on paypal) quick side note you are in no legal liability by receiving anonymous funds when you accept paypal transfer, you have established and closed a contract. The liability falls solely on the obligor, you as an obligee have no legal intercourse for misappropriation of funds.

Back to the Economic Development Policy, the classic theory rather we like to hear it or not is derived from gentlemen such as Marx and the oh soooo dismal Malthus. Their ideas of the world poverty and population becoming balanced through war, famine, and disease have been proven wrong. Then we take an economical view and lend our insight to the teachings of Adam Smith. This idea of an invisible hand moving us all toward the right direction that market forces will provide the greatest amount of good for the greatest number of individuals. WRONG again you see my point is their is no definitive reason why the poor are poor and the rich are rich. You may claim the rich are wealthy because of their entrepreneurial drive or their unknowingly disdain to prosper. Or that the wealthy have earned the right or the privilege by generations of forefathers providing for them. On the other side the poor can be sought as individuals that lack the desire to attain a prosperous lifestyle. The poor may be viewed as a burden to society to show the inept and lazy individuals. No matter what your views the cold hard fact remains that their are over 2.2 billion people on the planet earth living on less than 2 US dollars a day. Adjusting for purchase price parity leaves a horrific image of hyperinflation which paints a even more horrific portrait.
