is this real?

I posted an ad for sale to a mobile. Someone told me he wants to buy it and asked me to tell me that I will pay via PayPal but that I will also receive money for transporting the furniture, I received in the email specifying to pay the transport fee for the furniture for to be in possession of money on furniture! Has anyone else suffered like this?

Scam. If someone really paid, you will see a record of payment in your PayPal account without having to pay for shipping first. That's not how PayPal works. You receive money first before shipping. No money, no talk.

 

Now PayPal may put holds on payments you receive but at least the funds is showing in a pending balance and marked On Hold in red and you see a record of payment and in this record of payment, PayPal will tell you if it is ok to ship or not.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
