If your gut says no follow your gut pal. I typically only deal w/ people that have good feedback. If I don't trust the person I'm dealing I just don't do it.

There are some shady characters out there and its not worth losing money. If you end up in a paypal fight, 10 to 1, he's going to win and you will probably not see your markers again. If you want to be a bit protected you might consider using a USPS Money Order. Any time I feel a bit iffy, I require a MO, its alot more trouble for someone to scam use when they used a USPS MO. The person would have to put in a whole lot of effort dealing w/ USPS as apposed to a couple emails w/ PP, just a thought.

As far as what JT says, that type of language just doesn't and won't hold up. Paypal typically won't care about that. Additionally, that type of language usually scared buyers away. I typically don't buy things "as is" "untested" "no refunds", I want the marker to work and expect it to be in mostly working condition when it gets to me. A couple leaks is no big deal but broken is.

Don's video thing is the smartest thing I've heard in a long time. I've never thought to do this. It is very smart though, you can show your face stating the date, the marker type and basic info and then show it firing. Very good back up.

Finally, I never use USPS for shipping markers. I always use UPS or Fedex and I always insure the markers over the current market value of a used marker. I typcially insure the marker for the value of a new marker. The reason I do this is that if it is damaged or stollen I need to ensure I will get the value of the marker back. Also, w/ FedEx and UPS I have good solid tracking.

So to end this long winded message, if you don't trust the situation back out man. Another buyer will come along.

I would forget it since he wants you to ship to a p.o box.

I know saying "no refunds and returns" can make a person not want to buy but i do it because I have had(and my dad) expeiriences in the past when i sent a item in 100% condition, then the person got it and send the didnt like it i want my money back. So i say that now because i describe all my items 100% with words and pictures, so when i send something thats in 100% and the person gets it and just dosent like it or says they want there money back, well to bad for them because i told you everything about the product before hand.
