Please be very aware of scammers working from Nigeria. I and others are constantly being hounded by these non-paying scammers. Just recently a friend of my teenage son sold an expensive mobile phone and was ''paid by PAYPAL!! Unfortunately the email sent from Paypal saying he had been paid was NOT from PAYPAL but a forgery. As I have been on Ebay some while now I am used to seeing Paypal invoices and receipts...newcomers to Ebay are not. They do LOOK quite convincing, but IF you are not sure then send it to EBAY and PAYPAL who will verify if in fact it has originated from them. Alas my son's friend is now out of pocket by some £120+ and he has sent the phone off to the address in Nigeria........so, BE WARNED!!!!
