Question ebay scam or legit?

I bought and paid for an item off ebay earlier today, and the seller has messaged me this...

"Hey, thanks for a quick payment. Any chance I could have quick feedback because for some reason Paypal are holding on to my money until I get postitive feedback for the item. Ive contacted them and they told me I need the feedback in order to have the money."

Is this dodgy or am I being paranoid?

What makes me curious, is if I leave positive feedback, then whats to stop him saying he's sent the item? There's no way I could prove it, and my positive feedback would back up his claim?

It appears he's only had 3 transaction so far, and all 3 have been positive. Something just seems a bit odd. Help/advice anyone?
