Fake PayPal order confirmation. But what’s the scam?

I received an email with a PayPal order confirmation that I bought a ring camera.

I went through the email, and all links are legitimate [Ring.com](https://Ring.com) or [Amazon.com](https://Amazon.com) links.

There is no link to a fake [PayPal.com](https://PayPal.com) page.

The ‘From’ address is obviously fake, it’s from ‘[email protected] <[[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])>’.

There is no separate ‘Reply-To’.

The ONLY thing that I can think of is this phone number at the bottom of the page which doesn’t go to PayPal.

Is that the ONLY thing here? Or am I missing something…

Edit: called the number, Indian scammer trying to get me to install AnyDesk on my phone… Gonna set up separate wireless + empty phone to see what they do tomorrow.

    The scam is for you to call them. They would refund your money but would accidentally add a few zero to the refund amount. The person would lost his/her job if you don’t send back the overpayment. The best way to fix the problem would be to buy some gift cards and send the code to them.
