Urgently need the on-hold money today

New Community Member

£1400 has been sent to me today via paypal - £300 is put on hold. This money was for my travel for today - flight tickets, visa and hotel to make sure I reach my workplace. I cannot book it without this money. I need it by today and I can provide evidence that I am using the funds for what I said it is plus the person that sent it can also confirm it. How can I do that? This is urgent.
