Courier Fees

I am selling something on gumtree. Someone has shown interest and said they have sent the funds to my PayPal. I got an email saying they have sent me the total amount plus £300. I’ve been asked to pay £300 to the courier to release the fee. Is this a scam?

Re: Courier Fees

Yes it is a scam. Paypal don't withhold money. If somebody sends you it, you will see it in the app/on the website. 

Block the user and forward the emails supposedly from Paypal to spoof@paypal.com
