Would NEVER do it. Get a friend from the area to go get the stuff. And who is the seller? No link in your post.

That Facebook account appears to be a very poorly executed fake profile. Before asking Richard to help ask the seller if he can give you a time and location for a friend to inspect the item. Chances are good he will vanish after that.

That means ZERO. Do some homework and make some calls, but still i would not buy anything if any social media platform without verification via friends or family. There arevso many professional scammers that go to great lengths to fool you. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

To be honest, I wouldn't post goods off without full payment first. You don't know him, but he doesn't know you either.

Sounds like you called his bluff!
