I gave a possible scammer my PayPal e-mail

I already gave my PayPal e-mail to a possible scammer on the Finnish website Tori.fi (a website for buying and selling items), so what do I do to make sure this person doesn't get access to my stuff? I disconnected by debit card and bank account, where everything is still as it should be and my PayPal wallet is, as usual, empty.

As long as you didn't give them your password then what is the issue?

Don't really know why I would. I just read that people can apparently get at your bank information if you have something like a debit card or bank account linked with your PayPal (I'm very inept when it comes to computers in general, hence I have a technical consultant) even just from your e-mail. Correct me if I'm wrong. I did also switch e-mails for my PayPal as a precaution and I'm eyeing my personals like a hawk.

So am I safe or not? I'm honestly uneasy and shaken up over this.
