I basically got a email to say I received a refund through paypal but this hasn't shown in my bank statement? Can anybody help me? the original refund was the 17/09/2021
If you funded the original Paypal payment to the seller from your bank account or a card then once marked refunded/completed it will automatically go back to that bank account or card.
Normally it can take a few days up to a week to go back to a bank account and a bit longer for a card, Paypal say allow 30 days for a card (1 billing cycle) but its rarely that long.
(Can vary according to country though).
HOWEVER if you funded it from your paypal balance OR the refund was declined by the bank then it may have bounced back to that balance so could the funds have been used to purchase items paid for after the refund was made? Check transactions around the time of the refund and see if they were funded via your balance instead of bank account ie refund?
