I made a business transaction but I have not received my money in almost a week!

I sold an item through Facebook Messenger, and the buyer told me to request the amount of money from them through PayPal. I did that. I was told  I would receive my money on Wednesday, and then that turned into Thursday. The product was delivered last week, and I still have not received my money. THEN I  received an email stating that I needed to purchase a $200 eBay gift card to expand my limit, and then I would receive a total of $1,050.00. The emails I received had many misspelled words and poor grammar, and I believe the buyer has scammed me. I have called PayPal 10 times, and I can not receive any legitimate help with this issue. I am so frustrated and discouraged, and I am very close to just eating this loss and closing my account forever.
