Be very, very careful. There are a number of eBay hoaxes involving
international money transfer, and completing a speedy transaction is often
the goad to get you to do things you wouldn't normally do. If there's any
mention of using a money order or other instrument for more than the
purchase price (and you refund the difference) then tell him to buzz off and
report it to eBay.
