Fake Email?

Morning all, was wondering if you could offer some assistance. I am selling an old iPhone, and the buyer has supposedly sent payment through PayPal. Nothing is showing in my account, and I received an email (to my spam folder) which looked suspicious. It included the paragraph: This PayPal® payment has been deducted from the buyer's account and has been "APPROVED" but will not be credited to your account until the shipment bar code/tracking number is sent to us for verification so as to secure both the buyer and the seller. Could I please get some assistance as to whether this is indeed legitimate or a scam? Thanks,

Yes, that's bogus.  Ignore or report it if you want to.
