Don't send anybody anything via Western Union! You will never see it again! Just deal with PayPal only! It looks like a scam is being run on you. PayPal will keep the money is escrow to protect you. Don't send these people any money directly!!!!!!

You're being scammed. Don't send any money. Call the authorities. My guess is that you clicked on a link provided you by the "buyer" that took you to a site that looked just like paypal but wasn't. Check the URL of the site you're on. Does is say paypal.com or does it say something like paaypal.com or pay2pal.com?

not familiar, but i know u feel pressured into doing this fast- but don't! it is probably fraud!! its not that hard to process payments if thats what your business does everyday- and u would just re do it on pay pal, not western union! has to be a total fraud!

This is a variation of the classic scam where the buyer sends you too much money and then asks you to refund the overpayment. Of course the buyer sent you a counterfeit check or, in this variation, phony correspondence from paypal. It just screams SCAM!! By the way, Paypal's website tells you not to use Western Union unless you are absolutely sure who you are dealing with.

If you received an email from them, first do this: If you are using outlook, open the email, then under "View" click "Options" it will show you all of the header material. In the very first line you will see the "Return Path" listed. If it does not say paypal.com in the email address, then it is a fake! If you are unable to do this, look on the PayPal site for their support email address (you'll never reach them by phone!), and send them the email as an attachment, and explain to them you wish to know if this is legitimate or not.

Anything with western union is suspect. I wouldn't do it until you have all of the information and the money in your account.

don't trust paypal unless you are accessing it via the gumtree website. Paypal has been really dodgy lately aka people pretending to be paypal are sending emails aying you need to add extra details or something then stealing your details. DON'T DO IT! XX

paypal isnt legally a fraud or spam but it has so many rules and guide lines that its not even worth it. they keep trying to keep my money that they owe me and now i have to find the loop hole past it. if you get one, be sure to be smart about it.

this does NOT sound right. I would cancel this transaction, and seek a refund immediately. It might help to call/e-mail PayPal ASAP.
