Log in thru the browser address bar. See if there is any such request, if not, likely a scam.

Obviously fake!
Never ship an item until the money is in your hands. Golden rule of online selling.

Sender email can be easily faked.

To add - if it's real, the same message should appear in your Paypal account as a notification.
