Is this a real PayPal processing screen?

<removed>That link is screenshot of the processing page. I'm almost certain it is doctored with photo shop. So I can get scammed for more money. Just thought I would confirm with the PayPal community. I'm also wondering, what's the difference between business and personal accounts? Lastly, can I report a user who's scammed me via PayPal?

Re: Is this a real PayPal processing screen?

Good day @SaSSySiSSy 

 

I hope you are well and thanks for posting.

 

The screenshot doesn't seem to be PayPal's.

 

When you are checking out using your PayPal account, it will direct you to the login page then it will only ask you to select your shipping address and payment method if you haven't had one set up. The screenshot is not even the same with a Guest checkout. So we have to assume that someone was trying to scam you.

Lastly, can I report a user who's scammed me via PayPal? - Please see How do I report a fake PayPal email or website?
