The scammer agreed to buy your item (no bargain) and suggested to pay via paypal. However he/she asked you to transfer shipping fee on behalf of them to the shipping company first via western union, before you would receive full payment from paypal. There were two emails from paypal (should be scam emails). One shows "buyer received payment", and another indicates to hold fund until buyer would have wired money.
And the so-called shipping company is from a no-one-know place not belonging to buyer or seller's residence country. Once I suspected then googled. Same email and shipping company were already reported. So ebay sellers, be alert!
