I need help- Confirmation***You Have Received An Instant Payment Of $570 USD

I am selling an item to a buyer, and the $570 USD is the agreed upon amount. I just want to make sure this is legit and the email is actually from PayPal. I need a response fast as this money is seriously needed for an emergency.

It will be credited into your  PayPal account as soon as we receive the shipment receipt scanned copy or tracking number from you.The shipment receipt scanned copy or tracking number is to be sent to PayPal online customer service.

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 or 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.
Delete any emails and ignore the scammers.
