Guys it doesn’t matter if his account is deleted, you can just make another one build up some small credit/respect then start scamming again.
To protect both the buyer and the seller I truly believe you need a third party to handle the transaction smoothly ( eBay,square,amazon). sorry but send money over PayPal as a friend or family never seemed like the brightest idea based on the history and news of bad transactions iv heard of people doing Without eBay.
Trust me losing $60 bucks ant anything, I know of guys that have been ripped off $2,000+ For doing side deals off of eBay. (edited)
