Stay well away bud, when I sold my old car privately on autotrader I sold it for cash and also insisted that the buyer signed an agreement saying he was happy with the condition etc, which I still have in my car file now.
You have to be so careful, there's crooks everywhere

Shipping a right hand drive to America? Even his reasoning is bogus! I have also seen a lot of ads in the past of cars for sale, where the seller only provides an email address. Plenty of chancers out there...

Avoid! PayPal protects the buyer.. it is very easy for him to claim the money back. Even if you withdraw the money from your account. PayPal will fund him back and will come chasing you for the money with every power they have

cash only with cars with me, unless they really cant do that, and i give them an old bank account details that i use soley for risky transactions, so i can empty it straight away.
