Dear all, recently a near missed for me falling into a scammer. I would like to share this so as all the sellers or buyers will take precaution measures. Recently I got a buyer that WhatsApp me with the number +61 , said he is in Australia working and wanted to buy the bike for his Son in Phillipines. 
He wanted to deal with the transaction via PayPal. Sound legit. After awhile I received a paypal email address: service@intl.paypal.com."> service@intl.paypal.com. The amount with additional $500 for the deal that the buyer transferred. However, the additional amount of $500 I need to pay for Transportation Fee. Which I have to go western union to remit it. LOL.. this is so obverse a scam. 
The whole dealing from conversation with the buyer to the paypal transaction if one do not know the details and thought a Deal is closed... might fell into this trap. After I went through some other forum and also paypal forum ....many are being cheated and that has been years. Please beware.
