Webhook validation not working in sandbox

I am working to validate the Paypal webhook post to my site and I am having some problems. I have all the data that's required, and the post to /v1/notifications/verify-webhook-signature is returning a 200, but it's returning a verification_status of FAILURE when I would expect a SUCCESS. I verified that all the data being passed to the Paypal API is correct, and I made sure to include my Authorization header with Basic auth. Is it not possible to verify the webhook signatures for Sandbox webhooks? I have included the body of my POST request. I don't see anything wrong with it, but if someone could help that would be great. Thanks.

I was trying this too and seems like we can not validate the simulated payloads, did find another way to validate the signature?
