   The easiest advice, of course, is: If you don't trust the seller,
   don't buy from him.

   If you have no choice, though, what you're looking for is an escrow
   -- either a commercial escrow service like escrow.com, or a
   knowledgeable friend geographically near the seller.

   If you go with a commercial service, use escrow.com; they're
   recommended by Ebay.  DON'T use another escrow service unless you
   have some way to know FOR CERTAIN that they're legitimate.  Details
   of the escrow process are available at:


   I've used escrow.com a couple of times; it's pretty painless.  You
   may even be able to convince your seller to split the escrow fee
   with you.
