Nope, total SCAM.

Sellers never have to send money / tokens / gift cards / vouchers or anything else Paypal account related.

No funds in your Paypal balance = you have not been  paid.

 

Just look at the spelling / punctuation / use of capital letters and everything else in that email, screams SCAM.

We have received your shipment tracking number but we encounter a little problem while crediting your PayPal account,You have a pending payment of $450.00 USD but we have a problem crediting your account with that amount because the status of your PayPal account is not a business user which makes your account has limit and this amount seems to be above your limit, This will not make us credit your account until you expand your limit. Note: You have to take this urgent step to expand your Limit. Contact the last payer of your account Mike Fischer to send in an additional payment of $500.00 USD so that your account limit can expand to a business user and both of you will conclude how you will refund him/her back once he made the additional payment transfer ,and as soon as this is done, we will credit fully into your PayPal account the total sum of $950.00 USD Note: An alert has been sent to Mike Fischer in regard to the $500.00 USD additional payment he/she has to send to you,We will secure this transaction with high priority that neither the payer nor the payee will lose fund in this transaction. this is the e-mail i received. im the seller, the buyer offer to help upgrade my account and send $500 to my account he said. the gift card worth $500 will be the refund. kindly help me with this
