Hi make a copy of that message and then go to your paypal and send it to them and don't use the like in the email. Paypal does not send you messages like this unless you have subscribed to something like adlandpro etc. Use your own link to paypal and check as well and if they have paid money to someone you don't know challenge it.

 Most definatly, contact paypal with this. Just "DO NOT" use their link. They are trying to get you to click that link so they can get your password and use your account money.

Becareful and Have a Great Day!!

Our company get thos every once in a while.   They are so hard to believe that these transactions are not real.   They even include the Pay Pal logo.   We had received two confirmations from Pay pal stating that payment had been made and that the cash would be released as soon as we shipped the merchandise.  We checked with Pay Pal and to our surprise they did not have any transaction from those certain individuals.   Pay Pal told us that they do not hold cash under any cercustance because they don't know when merchandise is shipped.  We are glad we checked first.  We would have been out on merchandise.  Becareful and if in doubt....don't ship or release anything til you actually have the cash deposited in your account.

lol  that scammer is a cheap skate.

One I received said they had paid me $500. and another said they had paid me $300.

Needless to say I never click on a link in an email from any of my payment prosessors even if I know they are genuine.
