Fraudulent Paypal emails.

Twice now I put my sons PSP on Ebay with a starting bid and a "Buy it Now" option - clearly stating UK only,  Within 1 hour of the item being listed - I sold it. I then received an email stating that the vendor wanted me to post the item to her in Nigeria.  I contacted her and said that I did not want to continue with the sale as I did not post outside the UK.  I relisted the item again, I had several watchers - Lo and behold 1 hour before the auction closed I had a buyer using the "Buy it Now" option.  Then I had an email from the buyer in Holland asking me to post it to her daughter in Nigeria and requesting postage costs to that country.  The next day I had a email from Paypal supplying me with a PIN no.and asking me to supply them with a tracking number.  They also said the vendor had paid them and the payment was approved and they were waiting for this tracking id. on which upon receipt they would credit my paypal account. Obviously they wanted the goods free.  I have since found out that this was a fraudulent email and paypal would never ask for this to happen.  Please be aware I would hate to think that anyone could lose valuable items to the frausters out there!
