Lots of good advice above. I would suggest a meeting place nestled deep in a starbucks or panera bread or something like that. Form a checklist of what you need to test:
1. Condition of machine
2. Turning on computer
4. About this Mac
5. Check wireless
6. Check sound
7. Check superdrive
8. Change wallpaper backgrounds to check screen for spots/dead pixels
9. Check battery - install coconut battery if needed
10. Check Apple Care status from the serial from the about this mac
11. Check specs to make sure they match the offer

I recently bought a MBP at a nearly too good to be true price off of CL. Here's what I did to make sure I wasn't being scammed:
-Interacted w/ seller via email, text, and phone to set up a time to meet in a public place, haggle about price, etc.
-Met him at a coffee shop, and told him I wanted to thoroughly test drive the machine. He was totally okay with this (if he wasn't I would've walked away). What I checked:
