PayPaland moneygram scam

Good day

I have had a scam. Advertised items on OLX. I received an sms from an Emily Copeland saying she is interested in buying everything. I was asked to give my paypal email to be paid.

I then received an email stating that I had been paid and in order to verify me, I had to pay the shipping that will be returned to me instantly after verification is successful. I did lose R4000.

People are spoofing PayPal and are making use of moneygram as an instant money transfer tool. It is not PayPal.
