This scam has been around for years (and not just on eBay). Apparently there are now rooms full of people in West Africa sitting in front of computers sending thousands of these scams out.

Not just in Africa. I listed my Nikon D700 on Dutch marktplaats.nl, and almost immediately I received an offer a 100 euro higher then I asked. Funny thing, when I contacted the buyer, he asked about my bottom price;-) I said it is not serious to declare something and then try to withdraw - so he immedately came back to his previous offer, asking, if I can ship it to his friend, who is relocating in Malaysia. Payment by Paypal.

Well, I will not ship anything to Malaysia, it smells 95% like a scam to me.
