Did someone ‘accidentally’ send you money on Venmo? You might be getting scammed (Los Angeles Times)

Los Angeles Times: Did someone ‘accidentally’ send you money on Venmo? You might be getting scammed. “In its support documentation on payments from strangers, Venmo notes that when you send money back, it will come from your Venmo balance, unless the amount requested is larger than your Venmo balance. Because the seller fee had been taken out, my balance was $490.40, remember? So if I’d sent Anna back a full $500, according to Venmo, it would have been funded entirely by my outside payment method, AKA my credit card or bank account.”
