I Recently sold a MacBook and she used PayPal Goods and services and we finished everything I got the package shipped, emailed the tracking number, and PayPal was supposed to send me my money at 9pm today and I still haven’t received it or an an email about it. I’d really like my money since I just gave someone a MacBook

WAS IT THIS 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 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 AND you don't email tracking numbers, you add them to the transaction already showing in your paypal account.

Kudos / Solution appreciated.

What do I do? Is there any way I can get the Macbook back or even obtain the money I was supposed to get from it?
