Default Strange paypal collection email

Hello

I have paypal account that has real info that recently has been getting 'collection warning from paypal'.
I know the email is legit (checked headers).

Problem is... my paypal account has plenty enough cash in it.

I am tempted to contact paypal about it, but I am afraid it is going to get my account under too much scrutiny.

I use that paypal account for selling on ebay. That paypal account was also linked to an old ebay account that got suspended years ago.

Any advices?

Your new EB will inevitably get suspended due to this link

Sorry for delay.

One ebay account linked to that paypal got mc999 (linked to suspended account)

Before i get a mc999 on an account i usually get strange email from eb/paypal asking me to do something ( ex, pay a debt that does not exist)

Maybe it is a trick to get you to do a mistake.

Your collection notice is to collect on the old debt you owe plain and simple. Pay it off asap. Surprising as it may seem ebay will "overlook" another account after you've been suspended if you pay your outstanding balance or didn't owe one in the first place. I know this from personal experience.

You have an old ebay balance or something due and they are asking for you to pay it.

Or they paid a customer or something and want their money back.

They would not be sending this if there is no balance due.

Have you received a collector letter in the mail now or in the past?

Thx Sandy.

Problem is i can't see where the balance is. PP has $1000 and there is no balance visible anywhere on the site.

That Pp account has been linked to mc999 eb account. I have one eb account left.

Should i call pp to understand where the balance is? Will it trigger a review of my eb account?

One precision: it is paypal that is complaining about a collection, not ebay.

I have not received anything in the mail.

If you are concerned about the money then slowly try to move it out. If you have been hard-linked, inevitably the transfer out will fail. Upon which, you would call and find out about the questions you have. Simple course of action....I would not call before I did some action (in your shoes)
