i dont know why i run into so many trouble with ebay lately

look at the the following message, i just receive this today
what is this? Paypal has a pending payment until i ship the item?
plus this guy is in Nigeria so it makes me thinks is more suspicious
correct me if im wrong, dont paypal usually notify payment through buyer's own e-mal address?

Shipping Information

Address: Akinyemi Olanrewaju
Shop c2 caocao shoping complex opo site nufat F/Station apata

Address Status: Confirmed?

This PayPal?payment has been deducted from the buyer's account and has
been 'APPROVED'but will not be credited to your account until the shipment reference/tracking
number is sent to us for shipment verification so as to secure both the buyer and the
seller. Below are the necessary information requested before your account will be credited. Send tracking number to us or email us through this mail
Link hidden: Login to view and our customer service care will attend to you. As soon as you send us the shipment's tracking number to us for security purposes and the safety of the buyer and the seller,the money will be credited to your account.
Once shipment has been verified and the tracking number sent to us, You will receive a 'CONFIRMATION Email ' from PayPal?informing you that the Money has been credited Thank you for using PayPal!

That's definitely a scam. Money paid through Paypal is instantly credited to your account, unless the buyer pays by eCheck, in which case the transaction is held as pending for between 3-9 business days (depending on the location of the buyer), until the electronic funds transfer clears. In all cases, you should never ship an item until the payment has cleared.

Paypal never holds payment pending until a tracking number has been received. These guys are just trying to defraud you out of your product.

RUN!!!! RUN!!!

Hi, if you are in the market for wholesale electronics to sell at places like ebay and other portals and you are wanting a good profit margin to compete with other sellers then contact me at I can get apple 5, I can get all kinds of cellphones (htc, nokia, sony, and more). I can also get all kinds of cameras like canon, tablets, macbook air, macbook pro. I only deal serious business to business and do not sell retail minimum order depends on quantity of order and can be as low as 3 units. I accept secure payments through google checkout.

So if you currently sell electronics or wanting to start your own business and looking for product then send me an email at and I will reply with price list and terms.

Have a good night.....
