Pending payment

I have received an email today that I have had a payment sent to my PayPal account though it is still saying pending. I have only received 1 email when the person sending the payment has received 3 emails. Is there anything wrong with the payment or am I just being impatient?

Is the payment actually SHOWING in your paypal balance but has pending by it and the transaction SHOWING in your paypal account transaction list?

Or have you just received emails to say that they have paid but nothing in your paypal account?

Re: Pending payment

Just an email saying the request has been paid. In my PayPal account the request is still saying pending with a $0.00 balance

SOUNDS LIKE THIS SCAM, READ IT AND SEE IF IT FITS.

 

SCAM.

 

They encourage you to accept a 'direct' Paypal payment and may ask you to send the item internationally.
No funds or activity of the transaction shows in your Paypal account and any emails 'may' go into your junk or spam folders.


You will get/got a "fake" email that looks as though it is from paypal.....it isn't because they don't actually have a Paypal account and have no intention of paying you.
It will say the buyer has paid ...you won't have been paid.
They will tell you that the payment is released when you provide paypal with a tracking/shipping number......this won't happen.

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.
Delete any emails and ignore the scammers.
