I am selling a ring online and the buyer (Pamela) agreed to send money as requested - no negotiation. She was generous enough to send an additional $250 to cover shipping. Pretty soon I get three emails from fake paypal account originating from "lv".
I have seen enough emails from Paypal to recognize something is wrong. So I check my funds in my Paypal account - not there. Second email wants the item shipped and upon getting tracking info they would credit the money.
Contacted Paypal - turns out all three emails are fake.
Real disappointment but at least I am not losing my goods.
