Scammers always sound desperate or are very pushy, won't let you hang up politely. You have to just say "No and don't contact me again".   You'll probably have to hang up on them.  Don't even try to justify it because they have an answer for everything.  If your gut says it's a scammer, it's a scammer.

I asked him simple question it's radiculus 'cause the price after the bid is over new item in a shop and you put extra 60?? Interesting good idiot or bad thief. Another's one action pattern very similar bunch of paypal proof of payment and rushing up like as soon I receive the item I give you good feedback and your money will be release by PP but my acount still empty like an african drum 🙂

Hi barstard1,

 

Welcome to the UK Community Forum and thanks for posting!

When you add an email address to your PayPal account, we send you an email to confirm that you own the email address. Click the link in the email to confirm your email address. If you don't receive the email, you can request that we send it to you again. Here’s how:

  1. Go to www.paypal.co.uk and log in to your account.
  2. Click ‘Profile’ near the top of the page.
  3. Click 'Update' beside 'Email.'
  4. Select the email address you want to confirm, click ‘Confirm’ and we will send you an email.
  5. Click the link in the email to confirm your email address.

Note:

  • Until you confirm your email address, you cannot receive money into your account.
  • You also must confirm your email address before you can make it the primary email address on your account.

I hope this helps,

Maria
