FAKE PAYPAL EMAIL ADDRESSES

Like if this guide is helpful
Hello, i have put my item up on a website called Gumtree.com this is a local website to sell your things quickly.
i recieved an email from someone wanting me to send my laptop (item) to Nigeria??
so i sent back of, only if they pay for the funds and P&P.
i got a email saying i have has £200 sent to my paypal. i went and checked and there was nothing?
Also they said they wanted me to send my laptop without the money into my paypal, and get the reference number to conferm the shipping?

I went back onto my hotmail and there was an email from "service@paypal.co.uk."
from my interent experience i have never seen a "." after the ".co.uk" ??? i thought defontly fake.

i sent the message back to the "buyer" saying send me £50 deposit so i no its not a fake"

I got a reply saying " i hope this is not a scam, if it is i will be getting the police involeved"

So PEOPLE BEAWARE
