I wasn't even aware I had a PayPal account but I apparently do, sold some shoes on eBay yesterday and got paid via PayPal but when I log on to PayPal it doesn't say that any money has come through, even though my email says it has; it won't let me add my card to my account either so I don't actually have the money and I can't access it?! Wtf do I do?!
