Watch out for buyers who say they are interested in buying your item and offering high amounts of money for them, and asking you to send the item to their son in Nigeria. My one tried to send the money via Money Gram, but I've heard someone else who nearly got scammed got offered payment through PayPal. It seems they are scamming mobile phones, but they may be on to anything.
These are some of the messages I got.
