Hey, I’ve been waiting for a while now to just get a response from PayPal. They are taking ages to release my funds even though I shipped the item with proof of shipment 3 days ago. Why is this taking so long! They said the maximum wait time with be 48hrs and I’m past that. I need the money plus I got an email from PayPal, saying they just need to confirm the tracking number I sent them. It is legit but I thought I’d give them 24hrs and yet they still have sent my money!

SOUNDS LIKE THIS SCAM, CHECK IT OUT.

 

SCAM.

They encourage you to accept a 'direct' Paypal payment and may ask you to send the item internationally.
No funds or activity of the transaction shows in your Paypal account and any emails 'may' go into your junk/spam folders.

You will get/got a "fake" email that looks as though it is from paypal.....it isn't because they don't actually have a Paypal account and have no intention of paying you.
It will say the buyer has paid ...you won't have been paid.
They will tell you that the payment is released when you provide paypal with a tracking/shipping number......this won't happen.

Paypal NEVER tell you to send an item before the payment is showing in your paypal account.
Paypal do not tell you to send trackable, they advise it for selling protection but it is not compulsory.

Kudos / Solution appreciated.
