WHAT IS PayPal Email Scam?
Scammers prey on sellers on online auction sites like Ebay and Carousell. They might agree to buy an item from the seller and make payment through PayPal. They then send the victim an email that looks like it had come from PayPal stating that the money has been sent. The seller is asked to provide shipment details or pay an admin fee before the payment can be released. Under the impression that it is a legitimate instruction from PayPal, the seller mails the item to the scammer.
