This is an old scam... You can google it.

My wife, an artist had someone try to pull it on her.  The way it works is that the buyer "pays" more than the asking price (usually extra for shipping) and you can pocket the difference.  The scam is that the cheque bounces, or the PayPal account is using an invalid credit card number or something like that, but you don't find out til long after the item has shipped.  The little bit extra is enough of a temptation to grab the unwary.  Beware.
