So here's the deal. I just sold an item on ebay. CANON EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM Lens +HOOD+FILTER+BAG - eBay (item 320468863458 end time Jan-06-10 08:02:58 PST) I send the invoice to the buyer who is Italy. This is my first sale on ebay/paypal. I then get an email from paypal telling me that this payment has been received and will be held for up to 21 days until the buyer receives the product. This sounds awfully fishy. I need some wisdom here so fire away. I will post the original email later.
