    if he is a scammer he wont get very far. laptops and things worth alot like these are protected and the money will be withheld until the laptop is recieved or the buyer leaves feedback. so basically he will get a notice saying he recieved funds but they are withheld. so the scammer will likely never see it. even briefly.

    What, are you sure about that? I sold my 15" MBP last April it sold for $1700 and there was no type of hold whatsoever...?

    Anyway, yeah, it seems like a total scam.

    Paypal holds are based not only on the type of product being sold but also the ebay and paypal status of the seller.

    I have seen scams (revealed) that were very reputable and decent ebay seller accounts. The great accounts were hijacked just to list a MBP.
