My experience on paxful.


So my first trade on paxful was a bad one I lost 20$ while trading as a newbie.

I received 20$ worth of Bitcoin from star-clicks.com PTC site

Among thousands of buyers I fell on a scammer which I selected to trade with.

A scammer on paxful fooled me to release my money from escrow and I did it because I did not find time to understand how paxful works.

I earn some cash online on a plateform called star-clicks which is a paid to click site to click on advert to earn money.

So I withdraw my money to paxful through Bitcoin.

After the scam I reported the buyer to the paxful team and these was their response.

Hello Collins,

We apologize for the wait time. We're here to help you out with the trade issue you reported wherein you released bitcoins without payment. 

We're sad to hear about what happened. We have taken action against the bitcoin buyer in this trade and have disallowed him in Paxful. However, we can't reverse a bitcoin transaction. This is the nature of cryptocurrency and is beyond Paxful's control.

To avoid this in the future, we strongly advise that you do not release the bitcoin held in escrow if you haven't received payment. If a buyer is asking you to release bitcoin without payment, please start a dispute and our moderators will definitely help you get your bitcoin back. "

So I could not regain my Bitcoin but at least the scammer was banned meaning he lost everything in his account.

Since then I have been checking his account to see his last log in and it has been more than 1month meaning he is truly banned from the platform.


The highest mistake I made was to release my Bitcoin from paxful escrow service without receiving my money.

So paxful is legit but some traders are the problem.


So I received another Bitcoin from  star-clicks.com PTC site which pays for clicking links through paxful again and I tried withrawals the money but these time it was successful.

These is a screenshot I took  .

So check a trader likes and dislike any trader with more than five dislike might be a risk.

Some time recent trader leave comment concerning a particular trader so you can read .

And if you have a problem while trading start a dispute and never release your crypto from escrow to be on save side
