URGENT HELP

I sold an item to someone and we decided to use paypal as a safe means of doing so. When receiving the payment of $1450, I was sent an email saying that my account had a limit and that the buyer had to send an additional $850, however, after doing so, the email i received with the confirmed $850 was labelled as phishing mail. It also stated that I would have to pay bay the $850 out of pocket first before receiving my credited amount in my account.

SCAM, no money showing in your paypal balance means you have not been paid.

They send FAKE paypal emails to make it look as if the buyer has paid or overpaid and the scam is the money YOU have to pay before you get your money.

Ignore and delete and emails and DO NOT pay a cent.
