Hello, I sold my gaming laptop to someone via craigslist and doing this through PayPal, I got notifications from PayPal saying that the money was taken out of their account and that I won’t get the money until it’s delivered. But it was delivered today and I’m not sure when I’m suppose to get the money. I’ve waited 4-5 days after shipping it spending $260 on shipping.
The emails you got did they start something like “ Dear Your email address, We are to let you know that the payment made for your item is confirmed and it has been deducted from the buyer's account which will be credited into your account as soon as you provide us with the shipment information.” Or “ You've got new funds!!!” if so then I am afraid you have been scammed, if you did not see a pending payment in your PayPal account then again you have lost your item. I am sorry if that’s the case. Speak to PayPal if you can get someone to pick up the phone, but ultimately not much you can do.
