sorry for those of you that answered my last question.
Ok, here is the situation. I posted my laptop for sale on sell.ksl.com wich is a website that helps you sale locally. The problem is I think someone is trying to scam me. Here is the ad I put on ksl
Asking price 600.00 obo
Hello, I am in the process of going on a mission. To help fund it I am selling this laptop. Last year I bought this laptop at Best buy for $ 850.00. I am having a hard time putting this up because I love it so much. It got me through a year of collage. The detailed specs are:
* Ram: 1gig
* Processor: AMD Turion 64 X2
* Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 graphics and NVIDIA nForce Go 430 chipset
* OS: Windows Vista Home Premium (32 bit)
* Wireless: 802.11
* Integrated Altec Lansing stereo speakers
* Standard 6-cell battery or 12-cell available for additional battery life
* Weight: 6.6 lbs
Like I said before. This laptop got me through collage. I will also give you external speakers keyboard and mouse.
The laptop has one minor problem that can be fixed. The wireless needs to be fixed. A computer company can probobly fix it for $ 30.00, which I can cut out of the price.
Thanks a lot for looking.
So I check my email and a guy seems interested:
let me know if i can pay through paypal for this item and also let me know the working condition of the item ..pls reply me ASAP
I write back:
Yea you could pay through paypal. Although im not sure how to do that. I have a paypal account though so it should work. The laptop works just like new. Although the wireless does not work, you can either:
*use a ethernet cable to hook it up directly to the moden or router.
*or you can get the wireless replaced wich wont be too expensive (around $ 30.00)
Overall its a great laptop. By paying with paypall I take it Im going to have to ship, right?
Thanks for contacting me.
He writes back:

I just barely wrote back:
Hi John. I dont know how to do this through paypal. If you could please explain to me what I am supposed to do I will gladly do it. What I am confused about is does paypal just put the money in my account, and how do i trust i that this isnt a scam? Also were do you live, so I can ship it to you. Sorry I am so weary, but I have got ripped of twice before. So if you could just answer those questions. Also why are you going to pay 850.00? how are you sending the payment? Thanks a lot.
Ok here is what he said:
Thanks for the response and i really want to buy this item from
you and i have a very good offer for you and i will also if you can
sign up for paypal at http://www.paypal.com,so that i can give you offer,pls
act fast and get back to me asap……….thanks
I already have a paypal, but I usually only use it on ebay to purchase from other sellers. I have never sold. So can you see how I am confused? Anyway, I wont be able to send it until tuesday. Is that ok?
I wrote another email that says:
I am led to believe this is a scam………….
Yes,no problem you can still receive payment through it..once i have
name and paypal e-mail for payment and also why are you leding to
believe this is a scam ..do you see anything strange in this
conversation..let me know so that i can explain to you very well..and
also dont forget to send me your name and paypal e-mail for
payment..pls act fast and get back to me asap..thanks
I then replied:
Well, is it possible that I get payment before I send the laptop? Because if so I would be able to do that. The fact that it is international shipping scares me. Because one time I did this and I never got paid. But If I can have the money befor I send it I would feel a lot better. Thanks a lot.
is it possible for me
