Another scam against eBayers??

Like if this guide is helpful
At this stage I have no proof that this a scam, but alarm bells are ringing.
I listed an item that didn't sell, but whilst it was still live, i received an email asking a question about it. I shared a couple of emails through the eBay site, then he gave me a mobile number to ring to discuss the item in detail. The item listing ended but he claimed he still wanted the item, so I sent a PayPal invoice to the account he gave me.
He called today & sent me a copy of an email he claims shows that he has made a payment through the "eBay/PayPal option on eBay"?? The eBay account he claims to have paid (salesc_lqi5107qgfm@members.ebay.co.uk.) is not my eBay account name and doesn't look like an eBay email address.
He also told me he will need me to send the item to his company, "Fuss Limited" which companies house files show was dissolved in 2009!
I will not be proceeding with this but thought I should share what I am sure is another scam.

Here is the email in full without the external links that were given.
