    That seems suspicious. If I were you, I would back off and look for other online stores.

    I can't say why the payment failed with "high risk", but accepting PayPal payments in this way is rather common among flashcart sellers, as PayPal does not allow flashcarts they can't accept PayPal directly on their site since it would be traced back to flashcart sales.
    Anyway, I can recommend nds-card. Especially this cart: http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149

    If you tried to pay by credit/debit, High Risk means that the bank didn't think the transaction was safe or legit. (A common issue when buying from small businesses in China and many other countries as unusual foreign transactions are often a sign of a stolen card.) Usually all one needs to do is let their bank know that they did indeed make the transaction.

    This, precisely. Also, some smaller banks, or simply more cautious ones, don't accept international transactions at all, whether you call them to let them know of the circumstances or not.

    Is this from NDS-card.com? If yes then this is not a scam. I have used the "offline paypal" method they describe 4 times and have not been ripped off. They are so shady about it because paypal has banned flashcart sales with their service. If you say anything in the comments, they might be caught.

    Like @MadMageKefka said, if that's from NDS-card.com, then it's not a scam.

    I've use them in the past, and that email looks like what they sent out to me as well.

    Got what I ordered and have been happy. No complaints.

    Depending on who you are buying from this would be pretty common

    Most Chinese sellers that sell grey area products will usually say that. Besides it wouldn't be uncommon for your bank/card to block the transaction since most of these Chinese sellers are labeled ask ''risky'' by banks.

    If its a reliable seller its fine, as these are common instructions. Since the email ends with a 163 that is a Chinese seller i assume

    Curious- what brand of card were you buying?

    Which one paypal account you sent to?
    It seems we have not told you our paypal account.
    Thanks for your helping to confirm.
    nds-card.com
    Whats the big deal is that I've spent hours trying to solve the problem and may have to wait 90 days to get my money back.

    Shit happens. This is a trustworthy site, however. I have bought from them countless times with paypal, and never been disappointed. Sorry to hear things went bad for you, but accidents happen. Doesnt mean they arent to be trusted though.
