I have some funds due to me for an item I sold on ebay but I had an email from what appears to be paypal saying the funds won't clear until I send Paypal my shipping reference. Is this a scam?

Definite scam matey.

Have you checked in your PP account to see if the funds are showing?

SCAM!!!

Whoever it is is trying to make sure that you have sent the item before they have paid fot it (and guess what? Once you have told them/proved to them that the item has been sent they won't give you the money)

EBay/PayPal doesn't work that way - they give you the money, THEN you send the item.

Report the buyer to EBay as a scammer.

He's still trying it saying check your paypal etc when I know it's not there. I've sent all comms to paypal and ebay. I figured it was fishy but I didn't know whether to report or ignore but decided to report. :thumbsup:

It is scam m8, so in any way you never post any item till you get your money, it is as simple as this. Good luck:thumbsup:

Just tell him that the payment has not yet appeared in your account, and that when it does, & ONLY when it does, you'll send the item.

some higher priced items being sold on ebay are having payments held,i read about it on the community boards,basically the paypal payment goes on hold until paypal have proof that you have shipped the item,to try and stop big money scams apparently,so could be genuine,best way to check is to call paypal and speak to them
