Sending cash to shipping agent

Just sold my first item on Craigslist and the buyer wanted to transfer money to my paypal account. I guess they are out of town and asked me to send cash (moneygram) to their shipping agent via Walmart?? Does that sound legit? Can't afford to be scammed.

This is a scam. Always go to the PayPal site directly and log in to see if you have any transactions or notices in your account. Don't click any links in emails. 

 

Here is a PayPal link with details on scams like these.
