Can you give some advice for a first time buyer? What are the golden rules?
Check all the feedback to see a)whether he/she has sold a lot of stuff with positive feedback b) What types of items they've sold, ie if there's only been CDs, clips, etc that's been sold, run away.
Ask questions about the item, if you're not sure about their answer, ask a silly question that any audio pro would know but a scammer would not. Get a weird answer, run away.
If they ask for anything that's not through Paypal, such as Western Union or cheques, run away.
