Yes its a scam, the punctuation and spelling give it away apart from the actual content.    Smiley Wink




They encourage you to use paypal and often ask you to send the item as a gift to a relative somewhere often Nigeria.

You will get/got a "fake" email that looks as though it is from isn't.

It will say the buyer has paid 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.

They also threaten legal action...have a laugh at that one and ignore it as its rubbish.

Paypal NEVER tell you to send trackable, they advise it for seller protection etc but it is not compulsory.

Paypal NEVER tell you to send an item before the payment is showing in your paypal account.


Paypal NEVER tell you to refund or pay a shipping courier via western union or moneygram if that is what they are asking you to do.

Delete any emails and ignore the scammers.

Thank you for your post and welcome to the PayPal UK community 🙂


I have fully reviewed the details that you shared and as mentioned by @kernowlass this does not sound like a genuine PayPal communication. You can always double check our tips about genuine PayPal emails via this link
