This scam has been ongoing for about 15 years and is all over the internet and this forum, there are genuine buyers from Nigeria however so the best way to recognise that its a SCAM is....................
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.
Paypal NEVER expect you to use a rival money transfer service eg Moneygram or Western Union etc.
Glad you were not caught out, but it will never end will it
Not as long as folks are falling for the scam which they are on a daily basis from posts seen on here.
