First of all this happens all the time with site escrows. This is why you should not use them. Some attacks look better then others. Using email is really not a very secure way to communicate with an escrow service as it is possible to forge an email.

To answer your question, I would decline to do business with the seller, and likely open up a scam accusation on the scam accusations page.
