Yes you did get scammed, I nearly did too. This scam I have not come across before and I think it's very tricky.
I got a very similiar message not the same but similiar.
<removed>(I don't care putting his information up if he is going to try scam me). He was betting that I would believe that it takes 24 hours for paypal to convert the currency from US dollars to pounds and in that time I would read "Non-Refundable the sender will not get their money back" and know that he sent it so I would trade my knife before that 24 hours was up. I ama very stubborn person so I did not. I called paypal support, I waited 20 minutes and no-one picked up . I realised the part on the left which said notes, this isn't paypal notes this is notes from the sender trying to fake a message from paypal. I looked this up and found out others were victims of this scam too, sorry to hear this I hope you can try get your items back. Have a nice day.
