It's not really a good idea to do a Craigslist transaction long distance, Craigslist themselves say to do all business in person and locally to avoid scams. I'd try to get as much info from this guy as you can as soon as possible. Did you pay via PayPal? That would help your chances of not getting screwed, but I wouldn't do Craigslist transactions like that in the future.

Yeah, he told me he's done quite a few transactions long distance. He seems pretty trustworthy, and I did pay via paypal. I'm a little nervous, but he won't send it until the payment clears, and I don't blame him, I wouldn't either to avoid being scammed. Anything you would recommend doing, if I do wind up being scammed?

if you do get scammed open a claim with paypal for the item and get your money back, a few months ago my credit card was stolen and used all over the web by some n00b gamer kid that bought a runescape account...long story short i got all my money back from paypal (300 dollars)

Thanks man. Good to hear you got your money back. I'm assuming this kid found your credit card on the ground or something? That's a huge offense, what happened to the newb gamer kid?

pwnd or pwned is gamer talk for "owned" or beaten really bad that its slightly embarrassing, usually a fast swift and brutal defeat in a game or irl (in real life). I think the hardest one to understand is 1337, which is code for l33t which is code for Elite meaning your the best. Someone actually put that as there bet on final jeopardy once and won nobody really noticed when it happened.
