PayPal (Europe) Limited is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority in the United Kingdom as an electronic money institution. PayPal Email ID PP365 I also recieved other emails from them aswell I relisted my item then someone else with 0 feedback bought it so i didnt bother contacting them and relisted the item. A good idea is to set buyer requirements e.g nobody with 5 or less feedback etc. Hope you found this helpful if you did please tick yes at the bottom :) Thanks
