hello everyone, I have sold 2 items between yesterday and today, I sent them and I got this message: "
"We received the shipment details and we shall carry on with the shipment process, It might take 6-12 hours to verify the shipment as soon as we finish with our verification about the shipment, We assure you that your fund will be credited into your account immediately. "
Have been longer than 12 hours and still I dont see any money in my balance
SCAM. They may buy on Ebay but they use an anonymous or hijacked Ebay account and do not have a Paypal account so they can't use Ebay checkout.
OR 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/spam folders.
You will get/got a "fake" email that looks as though it is from paypal.....it isn't because they don't 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.
Advice is voluntary. Kudos / Solution appreciated.
