Paid via pay pal.
Receive message from seller saying they haven't received the payment.
Re-iterate that payment has been sent and can be seen in Pay Pal. Seller will have to take it up with Pay Pal if they can't get it.
Seller comes back and says payment is "pending" with Pay Pal since they are using a new Pay Pal account, payment will only be released once feedback is received, seller says they won't ship until they have the money so can I leave feedback to trigger payment and they will ship.
Am I right to smell a rat?
I assume the scam is that once the seller has got my feedback and money they will fail to send the goods (if they even exist). Then when I raise a dispute to get a refund they will point to the feedback and say it was all OK and I'm now lying.
