PLEASE HELP! eBay buyer scammed me!

Hello, I’ll make this as short as possible. I’ve been using PayPal and eBay for the last 5 years. I’ve had 0 problems selling on eBay until now. This is my first very large sale and I live in the United States. Anyways, I sold some items for $4,250 to a buyer in the U.S. I made sure to get tracking and sent the items to him. I then transfered the money to my bank account and paid my mortgage and a few other bills. Well a few weeks later he files a claim with PayPal saying the items I sent him weren’t correct and he wants a refund. So I responded to the claim and told him to ship the items that I sent him back to me. He provided tracking information and it arrived to me a week later. So here’s the problem, he sent me back a bunch of crap that I didn’t sell to him. So I refused a refund and PayPal automatically sided with the buyer. I explained to a PayPal representative on the phone exactly what happened and she didn’t seem to care. Now my PayPal balance is over $4,000 negative. What do I do now? Paypal pretty much just let him scam me! Will I go to jail if I don’t pay PayPal back? What can they do? PLEASE HELP!
