Whatever you do, DON'T pay by Paypal or transfer money into an "escrow account" pending delivery of the car. In both cases you will lose your money and won't get the car. Say cash on collection by yourself in person or cash on delivery only and see what happens.

I agree with the advice given by Chris, but If you’re carrying cash be very wary.

You could also contact E-bay, they should have some sort of scam identification. The NZ version (Trade-Me) identified as 100% scam some people in a race car deal. I presume they look at the posting sources etc. It also helps them for site monitoring? Also agree on Chris' comments, this deal was asking for PayPal transactions.
