Hi everyone. I sold a phone via ebay about 3-4 days ago. I sent the buyer a payment request. After doing this I received an email from PayPal saying 'your funds are now available' but within this email it said I had to provide a tracking number from royal mail so I did, I sent the phone of to the buyer and sent the tracking number to both the buyer and to paypal. After doing this I then got another email from PayPal saying that the tracking number has been confirmed and that the funds will be available within 12 hours. It's now been about 2-3 days and still no sign of anything. The emails I got from paypal were from the email address <removed> which I believe is the legit PayPal email? But when expanding the email it shows that the email was pay-palverification or something like that. The email had all the correct paypal banners, copyright logos, date etc etc. Is this a legitimate paypal email or have I been scammed by someone pretending to be paypal?
