Hello, I'm the seller
My transaction has been proved and is under processing, Usually after how many days I will receive my money?
And how can I report for this problem?
The buyer told me to send the item to Nigeria, I have sent it and give him the tracking #
The item is now in Chicago but he told me that I need to send 300$ to the Nigeria Custom for clearing the package.
Should I send the money?
Thank you for your time
This is the link for the screenshots.
As for when you should recieve the funds, that should be instant or within a few days in the case of an e-check. If the funds were placed on hold then they wouldn't be released until the tracking shows it's been delivered (or about a month later if no tracking is updated and no complaint from the buyer occurs.)
You should see a "Seller Protection Status" included with the payment. Is it protected? If so then you should be ok with the shipment, but I wouldn't send any money to pay for customs. I leave that up to the buyer. They knew that was coming and they're just trying to get you to pay for it.
To me it sounds like a scammer, and I would recommend that you put a stop on that shipment and get it returned back to you before you lose out on cash and the item (unless it is indeed covered by PayPal Seller Protection).
Thank you very much
Paypal has sent me a confirm e-mail for the custom payment.
They will fund me and add an extra money as soon as I send them the MTCN
Thank you again for helping
That is a classic scam! You've been warned.
