You got scammed. Buyers do not sending invoices, sellers do. And when you are selling something, its not a "gift" anything. Its a sale. You have not been paid and won't get paid. Scammers misuse the invoicing function to send a fake receipt/invoice, marking it paid, to trick you into believing they've paid but they have not. There is nothing anyone can do about this. Always make sure you see a "Payment Received" transaction record that tells you that it is ok to ship.
