I almost got scammed by him as well but luckily I went with my instincts and backed out of the sale because he seemed very shady to me. Originally put an offer in for a pair of jeans he was selling and he said he accepted my offer but would like to wait a day or so to see if he could get any higher offers since he just put the listing up not long before I PMed him. So I wait and then the next day he PMs me and says he can accept my offer but cannot take PayPal as a method of payment, and asks if I can do a mailed form of payment or Western Union. Obviously this triggered an alarm in my head, so I said I was unable to do that unless he provided many references from here or set up an eBay auction (this was sort of a runaround already because I knew something was up)... and he PMs me back telling me he has sold many things here before but it was a long time ago so he "doesn't remember any references." I didn't reply to that, and then the next day he PMs me to tell me that he found out his account was put on limited access for receiving a payment that was deemed "shady activity" but he was able to go through several steps to remove the limitation and was ready to go forward with the deal via PayPal. VERY questionable dude.. sorry that you got scammed DK, hopefully this guy gets what's coming to him.
