Is this email header info suspicious?

OK, so I am trying to determine if someone is trying to scam me in a transaction. They are emailing me from a gmail account. I pulled the header information and this bit piqued my interest:

Received-SPF: pass (google.com: domain of [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) designates 209.85.220.65 as permitted sender) client-ip=209.85.220.65; Authentication-Results: mx.google.com; dkim=pass [email protected] header.s=20210112 header.b=o24vvuCw; spf=pass (google.com: domain of [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) designates 209.85.220.65 as permitted sender) smtp.mailfrom=[[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]); dmarc=pass (p=NONE sp=QUARANTINE dis=NONE) header.from=gmail.com

[[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) (this, by the way is not the actual value, I changed it to avoid revealing anyone’s email address) is completely different from the sender’s supposed email address ) let’s call it [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]).

So, is j[[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) pretending to be [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])?
