I found a nice Alienware laptop on ebay and I noticed the guy said in his listing that you should email him for a buy it now price. I sent him the email and he said he would stop the auction and sell it to me for 700 bucks. This laptop is fully loaded. Athlon X2 4200+ with a 7800gtx Aurora m7700. For 700 it is a feaking steal. My problem is I don't know how to send him the money and for it to be secure. He says he is going to pack the laptop up today, take pictures of it packed up, then he is going to go ahead and ship it out, then send me the pics and the tracking number showing that it has been shipped. He then wants me to send him a payment via wired, money order, ect. I talked to the guy on the phone, sounds about my age (about 23) and seems pretty kool. He had good feedback on ebay but only been on ebay for about a month. He lives right in PA. What should I do? What is the safest way to make this payment? Thanks.
