    Yes this is fraud. Ship only to verified paypal address or at least require phone verification on the phone listed in the paypal account. This could decrease the number of potential customers but at least you won't lose money.

    It should say "verified" in the senders details. However this is not 100% effective, as it could be a hacked account.

    In general if someone wants to pay more money than you are asking, wants overnight shipping regardless of cost, and most important of all if they need you to ship the phone to their cousin/friend/grandmother/whatever who is in Nigeria then IT'S A SCAM!
