I sold a parcel, but have not received any payments from a buyer, what do I do, instead being asked to pay for my payment to be released, email said I needed to pay at pick n pay or shoprite stores in order for my payment to be released, and I am to forward voucher and pin to PayPal for the payment to be released.

Issue with payment

You have unfortunately been scammed.

Paypal NEVER tell you to send an item before the payment is showing in your paypal account.
Paypal do not tell you to send trackable, they advise it for selling protection but it is not compulsory.
Paypal NEVER expect you to use a rival money transfer service eg Moneygram or Western Union, Shoprite etc.

Advice is voluntary.
Kudos / Solution appreciated.
