It's a scam, PayPal do not hold on to payments pending you sending the item, they have no involvement in the actual shipping. If someone has sent you money via PayPal then it will show up in your PayPal account.

No payment has been sent, the scammer is just looking to steal your item. The best thing to do is block the "buyer" and the fake PayPal and ignore any further messages from them.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.
