Here is a succinct timeline of the events.
- I received a Paypal notification that 600 USD were deposited on my account.
- I was not expecting any money, so I logged in to see what this is about.
- Apparently someone paid me for an item they bought on Ebay.
- The information contained on my Paypal account about the transaction, did NOT contain any information on what this is about.
- I am NOT an Ebay seller, so I have nothing else to follow this up.
- My first thought (apart from quickly spending the money) was that some poor soul after thinking that they have paid for an item they would wait for ever for an item they thought they purchased, only to never receive it.
- So I spent some considerable amount of time trying to locate the seller from their name only (did not have an email) by googling around, to clarify the issue
- As it was getting late, I left the issue to continue the next day.
