TT Classified Q? How to buy things without being scammed?

So there's this thing on the classifieds:http://www.thumpertalk.com/classifieds/showproduct.php?product=70230&cat=8

It's EXACTLY what I want and I've been looking for a good deal on something like this for MONTHS.

Anyway, how do I know this isn't a scammer? Do we go through paypal? Do I just send the money to his yahoo? How do I know, and how do we buy things on here?

The guy has been on TT since 2002, has over 2,000 posts, I would not be nervous. It is the guy that has been on TT a year or so, has 15 posts, that are the unknown.

With you (if you were buying from me), I would insist on plenty of time for the check clearing or would prefer cash.

I don't have that many posts? Any other ways I could assure him I'm not a random dude named Peggy from Nigeria?

If a long term member here knows you well and will vouch for you, that is a good thing.

You are only after a $10 pair of gloves. Not a 2011 Tm450.

Tell him you want them. Get his address. Address an envelope, write your address on a sheet of paper, wrap a $10 bill, maybe add a five extra for beer and shipping and mail it. Done deal.

^What he said. Just pretty much send him a message and go from there.

Why not just paypal him the funds to his email and him ship to the verified address? No checks, all electronic and instant.
