Log into your Paypal account and see if the payment is showing there, it may be an echeck - if so it will take a few days to clear.


If it's not in your paypal account then it's probably a scam, don't open any links in the email sent to you and if you have run your virus/malware scans asap.


I don't see any listings on this account so I presume it's on another account of yours.
