eBay buyer seems fraudulent

Hi. I was selling a MacBook Pro on eBay at auction. A seller messaged me asking if I could send him a request for £530 on PayPal. I then received an email from a suspicious looking email claiming that I could send the item. Without checking the address I sent the item through royal mail. I late got an email from the same address saying that I needed to request another £500 to expand my account limit, and then refund the money. The seller is claiming via eBay messages that this happened to them as a buyer last week. The original £530 request is still pending, so I think I have been scammed. Is there anything that can be done about this? 😕 Thanks for your help
