PayPal Help


Recommended Posts

Hey all, long time to speak :cheers:


Got a question for ya as your probably get back to me before Paypal or eBay actually does.


I've recently sold 2 items on eBay. One sold for £100 and the other £452. eBay records as one item has been paid for and the other hasnt. When I check my email I get a payment reciept from paypal for the £100 with a verfied symbol next to it and its showing up when I log into paypal. The other one (£452) isn't showing up on my paypal account. Yet i've recived a email i'll copy and past below which has NO verified symbol;

The seller only has feedback of 4 and hasn't used eBay for a year. Im suspicious of the bottom of the email where it says i have to send a tracking number before the money is credited. Does this sound like fraud or just something that happens when a fair bit of wedge is involved??


Err just recieved this anyways;


Dear gharvez (gavinharvey@hotmail.com),


Our records show that member sgallagher1979 recently won one of your items. We'd like to let you know that eBay has cancelled all this member's bids due to issues relating to their account.


As the buyer is no longer a registered user, you are no longer obliged to complete the sale. We recommend that you don't post the item or respond to further emails from the buyer.


If someone asks you to continue with the sale outside of the eBay platform, we strongly recommend you ignore the request. Transactions completed outside of eBay aren't protected by our Feedback system.


In some cases, sellers have reported receiving an email indicating that they have received payment by PayPal, but in fact this is a fake message. We recommend logging into your PayPal account to confirm that payment was actually received. For more information on spoof messages, please go to:



LOL annoying person! :thumb:

I sold over 700notes worth of boiler supplies in one hit to one buyer about a month back and received no sort of email as youve referenced.


Infact as a rule when selling something I never send the item until I receive the funds into my paypal account, afterall the buyer cant complain as the funds aernt released till the buyer leaves positive feedback via Egay and can be contested via paypal if the sold item is in anyway contary to description. Its paypals way of stopping low feedback buying, receiving and then not paying.


from what I can see and make out in that email Id tell the low feedback buyer to go take a flying leap and relist it with a warning that low feedback buyers wont be accepted.

My first post is confusiing people now, it was two different posts that got merged together. eBay got in contact straight away and suspended his account regarding some other disputes. :thumb:
