Was I Scamed? PayPal Payment Pending?

So I got this email after I sold something (not on ebay) But He payed through PayPal. I got this email saying payment is pending with them until I send them Tracking Number. I did that and then later I got another email saying that I had to upgrade to a business account. Supposedly The buyer had to send additional momey to "upgrade" me to Business Account. I havn't sent momey because something seems suspicious. On my actual PayPal account it says nothing, No history, No pending payments, no activity. Am I being scamed?

    Yes do not send anything to anyone until you look in your PayPal account and see the money once it's actually in your PayPal account you are safe to send the item with tracking.

    Never depend on emails as PayPal correspondence scammers fake PayPal receipts and fake links all the time.

    A dead give away is a letter that says dear PayPal user! PayPal will always call you by the secret name you created from your PayPal account.

    I sure hope you haven't sent the item yet

    Did you seriously ship the item.

    You're gonna need to get it back somehow.
