I am in the process of purchasing a domain name from somebody. I have spoken to her on Facebook. She seems real, has many pictures of her and friends. I know where she lives, etc. She needs the money tomorrow to purchase concert tickets as soon as they come out, though, and therefore does not want to use Escrow. She wants to use paypal. I have told he I could maybe send her half ($300), then she hands over the domain, and then I send the other half. She agreed to this, but I am still not convinced that I am not being scammed, seeing as paypal does not cover fraudulent virtual sales in their protection. How can I still purchase it?
Could I get her to make a listing on Ebay and purchase it from there using paypal?
Since paypal protects buyers that purchase real, tangible goods from fraudulent sellers, could I get her to make an Ebay listing for a "Rock from Peru and a facebook page"? Would that protect me and allow me to get the money back if I find it "unsufficient"?
Thanks for your help!
