Verify payment

I am interested in selling a laptop and the buyer is offering to pay me via paypal.  How can I confirm I have the funds before shipping the device?  I want to make sure I do not get scammed

Emails from PayPal will always address you by your first and last name or business name. If you're unsure of an email, go to the website directly and log in to check if there are any notices or transactions in your account. If you don't see any activity in your account, then its safe to say that you didn't receive any payments. 

 

Here is a PayPal link with details on scams.
