selling via pay pal

I am purchasing a new Jayco and listed my old trailer on Craigslist. I got a reply last evening from someone who says they are in the military and buying it as a surprise for a cousin and want to pay $17,000 on pay pal and then pick it up right away. I have never used pay pal and am wondering if anyone has experience with this. I am worried it might not be legit. They are willing to pay asking price without actually seeing the trailer.

Scam. Paypal gives buyers a lot of power after the sale.

From what I've heard and read about Craigs list and they all read just like you wrote, ]I would stay as far away as possible from that situation . Don't know exactly how it works but you will loose!!

That guy just wants to have fun because in the last couple years he's offered to buy my last dirt bike, a jet ski, and the camper I'm selling now lol

I only sell on Craigslist in person and for cash. I wouldn't use PayPal for anything.

I use paypal to buy items on line as I love the protection it gives me, as well as when I sell items on e bay.

I would never use paypal for a large purchase or sale of a TT or car etc as paypal has far to much control.

If the person is legit I would have them send me a certified cheque by over night courier and when the cheque clears they can come and pick up the trailer and complete the paper work.

Scam! Run away! You are wise to be suspicious.
