    Well, you may be right.

    But I have pointed out some things from their mail and it makes me believe that this is genuinely sent from paypal.

    First thing is that the header of the mail and IP address from which they are sending are related to ebay, and as we know ebay itself owns paypal.com , another thing is that they never ask me my A/C no because I have already added my account no. into my paypal account. Third and the most important thing is that they are not asking any personal detail like paypal password, netbanking password,etc.

    So it may be a testing step from paypal. And they want to start with any random guy like me, or anyone who has balance more than $5K into paypal account.

    I have sent all details , let me see what happens.

    I will regularly update the thread as soon as I get any reply from them.

    @ cooolapts

    Did you get the funds into your account ?
    Did the wire transfer actually work !

    And if you see the mail posted by the DP'ian it never asked for account number, what a scammer can do with all those details and no account number !!

    Further, how is it possible to get the phone number of a paypal user, emails can be sent at random, but calling random phone numbers . . claiming paypal paypal . . .

    makes any sense !!

    I got the same reply, checkout the last mail I got from them :

    We will transfer only the funds that you tried to withdraw in the recent. By next week, the wire transfer will be done and we will intimate you once its completed.

    I have just started not believing them, they are not telling me the exact amount because they dont have my account access.

    Can anyone confirm this ?

    By the way the lady who is calling gives her details :

    Shamna Pushpakaran

    Employee Partner - eBay-Paypal IDC

    Location:1.3.430

    Mob: 90947-69146

    Skype: shamna.pushpakaran


    Can anyone tell me about the mobile number ? I think its from Chennai, can anyone confirm the number by calling her ?

    I am worried because I have given the details like full name, bank name, swift code of bank and authorization letter.

    Don't worry about this issue ..
    After reading entire thread it is confirmed that it is not scam...

    If they ask you partial info then it means they have access to rest of info and it might be possible that people coordinating all these things do not have all the details of your account...

    They probably have details which is required to contact you and what info they need to collect which they will forward to account department who have the rest of details..

    The details which you sent them on mail can not complete wire transfer to your account, unless they have rest of details ... and if those details reach some scammer it is useless unless he hacked Paypal database... (which is any way very dangerous)

    Hey man,

    You need NOT to worry at all, I have also provided the details after having second reply and calling Chennai office to be assured completely. And I heartily welcome this step taken by PayPal while the withdrawal is not possible anyway.

    Thanks,
    Vijay

    It must be legit .. but wat i was more interested to know is whether this way would work due to the RBI rules coz if it does its kind of a loop hole in the system

    Actually Wire sounds moe safer as they will be sending wires from USA / Singapore which is out side RBI jurisdiction, if you ask me, i m more scared to ask for a cheque, because a cheque in INR is as NEFT, receiving a cheque from paypal in INR is same like getting a NEFT from them, only the process is different but they did exchange US$ in INR before they sent it to you. So what if RBI finds that they are now sending cheques instead of NEFT and issue a direction to all banks to hold those until next instruction


    Too terrifying . .

    I asked her in my last email that if you have access to my account then you must have all the details, you must know how much amount I tried to transfer last time. And also you must be knowing date of transfer.

    I got this reply :

    So it seems that she will be passing my detail to another team who is handling wire transfer.

    I will update the thread as soon as I get money or any other detail.

    Keep checking your paypal account, they will debit the amount whenever they initiate the wire...

    Wire needs at least 3 business day to reach your bank excluding the day of initiation...
