They're basically packages of money.

I wouldn't do a money order unless he ships you the order first. There is NO WAY to get your money back with a money order. The fact that he does not accept paypal means one of 2 things, it is a scam or he just does not have a paypal. Seems sketchy to me though.


Google his user name, check his feedback thread, and ask other members on MCB if he is legit.

I would skip it if he decides to tell you he won't get a Paypal. That's a red flag to me saying SCAMMER ALERT!!!

Also, ask around like everyone else said. I also have a trick I thought up. Ask to get SUPER specific pictures about random things like ask for a picture of the inside of the lpr housing. If he could provide the pictures, he likely has the marker(s) and it at least stops you from getting scammed by some of the scammers out there

Ebay uses paypal, good luck man I would not do it.

Even if I had the marker I would not do that for them.

I couldn't get a paypal when I first started out because you NEED a CC or a bank account attached to it to withdraw money so your reasoning is flawed.

How does he have an ebay and not a paypal? I thought that was a requirement.

 

Also, ebay feedback is misleading. He can scam you outside of ebay and there is nothing anyone can do.

Yeah 
he can take all the pictures you wan't, doesn't mean he has to send you the marker, you're still just hoping he's a good guy. 
& money orders don't always mean someone is a scammer, if they have legit feedback and they've been on the forum for a while it should be fine to use a MO.
