I believe I am being scammed by this person

First of all, he tried to befriend me on Facebook, then he started telling me he was in the military. About a month into talking with him he asked me what my address was because he wanted to send me "something." When I asked he wouldn't tell me at first, then eventually he told me he wanted to send me some gold he found with his "camp" he said they all split the gold evenly so he wanted my address. I told him I didn't want anything to do with it. So he begged me and begged me for my address, I gave in after a few days of begging. Then he told me to message the company to get delivery information. [email protected] then responded to me telling me they needed me to pay postage to Texas first, which I found very odd, especially because the postage price they told me was going to be around $1850. I work in the post office so that amount of postage is ridiculous and I never heard of a policy where I had to pay another company just so they could deliver from across seas. He kept insisting me to pay it and he would pay me back, but I refused. He still continues to beg me and I will not pay, so I googled the place I'm "suppose to send the money" and the name attached was to a Norma E Garza. Immediately what popped up just blew my mind, so I just want to know if anyone can look into this?

I called to check if Facebook Marketplace did do as shipping, payments and overlook sales. They said yes, so I saw a truck i wanted and Allen Walker stated I needed to go to Walmart and get $2100.00 of money cards. He said that he could not tell me to go and buy them, but he could not help me if I didn't. The sale did not go thru and I asked to cancel the sale and get my refund, he said he couldn't. This went on for a month as he kept saying if I sent more money he could refund the money. Harry said he was sending a check for the Full amount by Fedex but the shipping charge was $300.00 and I sad noway. I called Fedex ask asked and it was about $46.00. this all started 8/1/17 and i'm still waiting. I felt that with it being part of Facebook, i could somewhat trust them. BOY WAS I WRONG!!!!!!!
