    Need help on an internet deal

    I found a laptop I wanted to buy on craiglist. The guy who owns it is a wholesale dealer who lives in orlando. I talked to him on the phone and he told me about his business and I looked him up in the white pages.

    He wants me to pay him via westernunion, but he wants me to pay at a local agent becase of a former problem he had with someone using his grandpas credit card on the internet. However, if I pay at a local agent I can only pay debit.

    Is it safe to pay him, or is there a further way to verify this person?

    Nobody should pay by westernunion at craiglist. It is insane.

    so...if you pay with Western Union, how would you get your money back? Of course its a scam.

    thanks. I figured. I think due to the fact I talked to him on the phone I got a form of stockholm syndrome or something and really trusted him

    He's counting on that. Tell him to ship it COD by US Mail.
