Scam or not?

Hi,
Just wanted a bit of advice, and i know it is a scam but cant really see the angle and i def wouldnt do it anyway but wanted to see what other people thought...
I have put up on gumtree my bn mobile tocco lite for saleand have had 2 replies from people overseas who wanted to pay through paypal and obv for me to send it too them. The first was from Nigeria and i looked into postage but RM dont insure higher than £39 and dont track out of the uk so i declined to sell. The most recent offered £50 more than i asked for and also to pay through paypal - i havent replied as they also stated overseas with a similar story, buying for girlfriend etc.
Just wondered if anyone has had similar exp?
Cheers

Thousands of people have similar experinces,it is a scam.

They usually send you a fake Paypal payment email etc and hope you'll think they have paid and send it off.

To change the topic slightly OP :

You should have reported http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/images/custom_buttons/report.gif your HUKD FS/T listing for this Mobile to be MOD closed before listing it on Gumtree.
