Mathew Eldridge has just sent you $99.70 from paypal.
But my OE express is only used for reliable friends, family and ISP stuff- and I have never sold anything online or used ebay. The impulse is to reply and say email must have been sent in error but caution wonders if this is a tricky dicky jobby. Would appreciate advice from the better clued up!

Was the email actually addressed to you, and was it instead of Those are the two give aways. Don't reply, just delete and forget about it.

Thanks for the good advice- wonder how anyone got my OE addy!

Would the dodgey bit be the link to "view details of this transaction"?

It's a fact of life - sad, but true.
