I would like your view on this everyone. I know some people buy and sell things and have had success on craig's list, but I am skeptical. How would you make sure the seller doesn't just take your money and 'run'? Or how would you make sure they are not selling you a stolen knife?
As an example:
The person says:

I have a LNIB Spyderco paramilitary 2 for sale. This is the digicam version with the black blade and black hardware. I only used it a couple times and then put it back in its box in my closet. The edge is still razor sharp and has not been sharpened at all.

What do you all think? I tend to like the idea of purchasing from a real store, whether online or face to face or catalog, but, anyone have experience with this?
At least ebay offers some 'scam checker' methods right?
