    Okay so I was cruising craigslist like I always do and came across a pretty good deal on a macbook pro. They guy is about two hours away and said I could come pick it up.. he also said he was willing to ship with payment via paypal.

    That being said, I have been using paypal and craigslist a long time and it doesn't seem like a typical scam but I am always cautious when it comes to stuff like this so I am seeking advice..

    Would anyone else consider this? What steps should I go through to make sure everything turns up okay on my end? Video tape the opening of the box? Or should I just pass.. very good deal though...

    Meet him at a bank, do the transaction there, then deposite the check with him there. Thats the only way I do things on Craigslist.
