Received the same email. I reached out to PayPal – the “real” Paypal (888-221-1161) and was advised to send the “scam” to their fraudulent department. Fraudulent department email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not call any numbers on the “fake invoice”. If you have any questions call the number above.
