Ok, I sold a item. The person told me to request the money. I did. I created a shipping label with PayPal w/ sign signature. PayPal told me once, the package is delievered it will give me my funds, while showing the request sent to the buyer - pending. Packaged still isn’t delievered yet, says needs to be signed at USPS. I received a email from PayPal stating I have a problem. I have a PERSONAL Paypal and the money I am suppose to receive exceeds my limit. Paypal tells me I have to have a BUSINESS PayPal to recieve my full fund and to ask my buyer to send a additional $250, so she can make my account business automatically. After she does that, PayPal sends another email stating I have to buy a ITunes giftcard scratch off the back and send a clear picture for proof of purchase to refund the buyer the additional $250 she sent to make my account business so I can receive my full money. PayPal is stating its a security measure to protect us both. So no one will just take the money. Is this a scam or is it PayPal’s new process and will I get my item back if no one ever signs for it?
