How can I find out is it real or fake email transaction?

I got an email from buyer but I'm not sure it's real or fake. Because I checked on my PayPal it doesn't have notification or transaction from buyer. They asked my name and email account to send me a payment. The email address sent from like spoof email (you can see the first picture) and I never received an email from PayPal like this. (I captured the email and separated 2 part) I don't know how to fix it out. Thank you for helping.

They encourage you to accept a 'direct' Paypal payment and may ask you to send the item internationally.
No funds or activity of the transaction shows in your Paypal account and any emails 'may' go into your junk or spam folders.

You will get/got a "fake" email that looks as though it is from paypal.....it isn't because they don't actually have a Paypal account and have no intention of paying you.
It will say the buyer has paid ...you won't have been paid.
They will tell you that the payment is released when you provide paypal with a tracking/shipping number......this won't happen.

Paypal NEVER tell you to send an item before the payment is showing in your paypal account.
Paypal do not tell you to send trackable, they advise it for selling protection but it is not compulsory.
Delete any emails and ignore the scammers.
