I don’t have any doubts when ExpertsColumn declared that payment I requested on August 21, 2012 amounting to 5$ was completed. It means the site has already forwarded the payment to my PayPal account as per their records.

However, as of today August 30, 2012, the said payment did not appear on my PayPal account yet. I would ask Nikhil Mahajan (ExpertsColumn staff)- the person who prepares payments to help clear the issue and to know who is lying.
Regarding the issue, I asked PayPal by sending off a short letter at which the information was based from the information recorded at ExpertsColumn. My letter said:
Dear Paypal Team,
I am just curious to know what happened to the payments sent off to my paypal account by Expertscolumn prepared by Nikhil Mahajan. I requested it on August 21, 2012 from their site. On their final record the payment was completed – that means it was already forwarded and accepted by Paypal. However, I checked my account at Paypal today (Agust 30, 2012) but your site has no record of payment received from Expertscolumn. What happened to the said payment? Where is that payment of 5$?
PayPal replied: Thanks for the note, and we’ll do our best to get back to you within 24 hours. It might take a bit longer (depending on the question), but we try hard not to keep you waiting longer than 72 hours.
Below are records of completed payments made by ExpertsColumn and forwarded to my PayPal account:

Based from the above completed record of payments – who do you think is lying?
