I sent an invoice through paypal to the buyer requesting money for my item to the value of £180 including postage by DHL couriers. I received an email from beckylucy25@gmail.com on behalf of service@paypal.com on 21st March 2014 stating that I had received a payment pending on tracking number of parcel required. Stupidly I replied to this message thinking it was Verified Paypal email with the tracking number thinking that the money would be then in my paypal account. I contacted paypal and they said this was fraud and they are investigating many of the same types of fraud by different customers. I wanted to report this to save it happening others. I shouldn\'t have sent out the parcel until I had received the money into my proper paypal account. I am so dissapointed that people like this are getting away with this taking on the vunerable.
