He/she asked for my email address at first.
They don't sign off with a namewithin the emails.
They asked 4 questions about the item e.g. Will it make a good gift? Why are you selling it? etc
They asked for my PayPal email address, even though they didn't agree on a negotiated price.
Then they claimed the payment has been made, as seen below.

I googled the address I was given, as I was suspicious after I didn't receive a PayPal notification, and I found their details on this site.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
