Scam?

Im from Australia and Ive listed my Macbook on Ebay for 2 days now. Ive recieved 4 emails from 4 different people suprisingly all from the US. Ive nearly been scammed in the past so Im not new to this stuff. However after contacting PayPal customer support all they gave me was a guidline talking about hiw they will greet you by their first name, how they wont ask for financial details, password and security questions. But thats so obvious! Ive been dealing with 4 people at once because im too afraid to proceed with one person due to being scammed. Ive posted screenshots of all emails I recieved from different people. Please Paypal community can you help me figure out which one if these emails are fake or not. PS.. All these emqils came into my spam mail and had suspicious activity written on top. Thanks

READ THIS AS I EXPECT IT WILL BE THESE..........

 

SCAM.

They encourage you to accept a 'direct' Paypal payment and may ask you to send the item internationally.
No funds or activity of the transaction shows in your Paypal account and any emails 'may' go into your junk/spam folders.

You will get/got a "fake" email that looks as though it is from paypal.....it isn't because they don't actually have a Paypal account and have no intention of paying you.
It will say the buyer has paid ...you won't have been paid.
They will tell you that the payment is released when you provide paypal with a tracking/shipping number......this won't happen.

Paypal NEVER tell you to send an item before the payment is showing in your paypal account.
Paypal do not tell you to send trackable, they advise it for selling protection but it is not compulsory.
Delete any emails and ignore the scammers.
