I was selling an expensive electronic item on eBay. Got an email from eBay saying that the item was sold. The the buyer messages me requesting expedited shipping as it was supposed to be a birthday gift. She said she'll pay extra for the shipping. Then I get an email from Paypal that said the buyer had transferred the money and that Paypal would hold it until they can confirm the shipping details. I ship the item and wait for my money. Paypal emails me saying that I should get the money in one business day. The next day, I receive emails from eBay telling me that the entire transaction was fraud, the item was never sold and the buyer never paid. The previous emails from Paypal and eBay were also fraudulent. So now I have lost my item and am in a loss of $500. I am a college student and I really need that money for my rent. Please help me out.
