possible scam attempt

I received a response to a Craig’s list ad where a ‘buyer’ stated she placed $1500 on hold in my PayPal account for an item I was selling for $1050. She then stated that she was “trusting me” to reimburse the balance after payment for a “pickup fee” via Western Union, and the $1500 would be released following confirmation of the WU transaction. I also received numerous emails from “[email protected]”; all contained poor grammar and the last has threatened legal action if the transaction is not completed within 5 hours. Surely this is a scam?
