Re: Need some advice please

I've sold a lot of stuff on eBay.

It's normal if you haven't sold much stuff to get a hold put on. 
However....if PayPal is telling you to ship, DO NOT SHIP until you know 
have been paid and you can deposit the money.  If it was a 10 dollar item, 
I'd ship it anyway.  But not with a 760 dollar item.
