eBay Payment. Is this "dodgy"?
I've sold an item on eBay and sold quite a few items successfully before.
I've recently sold an item and had a message from "eBay" (in my messages inbox within 'My eBay') that looks like a generic standard eBay message saying:
A few things have set off my 'alarm' senses:
The buyer has sent their payment for the item listed below and it is currently being processed by PayPal. You can also sign into your PayPal account now to check the status of this payment.
PayPal is the safer, easier way to get paid online. After you claim your payment, you can withdraw your funds immediately or keep it in your PayPal account for use later. Learn more.
This message was sent to your eBay account and to your email address, so you can view this information in your message centre in My eBay and in your inbox.
1) There is a big "claim your payment" button waiting to be clicked. As far as I was aware, payments automatically went into your Paypal account?
2) Following on from 1), there is no trace of a "pending" payment in my PayPal account.
3) It says a copy of the message was sent to my e-mail address, and there has been no e-mail sent.
This is all looking a tad strange. Does anyone concur?
