I'm selling an item through another listing other than E-bay, the person wanting to purchase it says their employer deposits his paycheck into his paypal account and he doesn't have any other account(checking,saving,etc.)and he wants to pay me by transferring the amount,$3200. into my paypal account. Can this person hack or scam from my, or into my paypal account, or gain access to my banking account?

DO NOT accept Paypal for items that you are not shipping via a service that will provide online viewable proof of delivery.
And in this case... online viewable proof of delivery WITH SIGNATURE, since the payment amount will be $250 or more.

If his employer deposits his paychecks into his PayPal account, then he would have a balance. Any payment made would just be deducted from that balance. There is no reason that they need to do anything but pay through PayPal without needing any additional information.
I sell on other sites too, and have never had that kind of request. Something just isn't right about that.

My opinion only...B-)
This has the smell of a Scam...
Wouldn't even consider it.
Proceed at your Own risk.
Does this make any sense.?

All the buyer needs is your Paypal email address to send you money.
Just be SURE to CHECK your paypal account directly when you get paid. Do NOT depend on any "paypal payment email" you may receive, there are many fakes and scams done with fake payment emails.
