PayPal Email Scam
I had posted an ad for sofa set resale at Gumtree. This guy claiming to be from China but using US number +1 (631) 315-4783,contacted me and was ready to give my price. I just managed to catch it as scam and stopped from following his instructions. Very scary. Pls be alert.

Received his Paytm message:

You've received an instant payment

from Ryan Debious via PayPal MERCHANDISE Payment. Kindly check your email and complete the transaction
