I think I have been scammed and don't know how to report it or get my money!

I sold a pair of designer trainers via gumtree a few days ago. The buyer messaged me via text and seemed really genuine and wanted the shoes posting the same day. I told them I was ready to send and was waiting for the money. I then received an email which looked to be from PayPal with details of the persons address and a transaction ID number but the email didn't look right. I asked the buyer about the email and stated that it didn't seem right but they reassured me it wasn't a scam and sent me an image of an email that they had received which looked similar. Once I had posted the items, I sent an email back confirming the tracking information as this would apparently speed up the process of the funds arriving in my account. I still haven't received any payment and the buyer has blocked my details. How do I go about reporting this to PayPal and getting my money?
