Basically, I am going to be selling my psp, and getting an iTouch with the money.

I put up an ad on craigslist, and 2 hours later, I get someone interested. I had a look at the message he sent, and compared them to scammers messages, and he seems to be clean. The message he sent just simply said, how much, whats your paypal ID, I wanna buy it.

Now, of course I would need to be payed first, but my question is this.

Once he has payed me, is it possible so he cannot request the cash back. Of course I won't scam him, but I'm afraid he will just say...Sorry I didn't recieve the item, and take the money back.

ask him for some information like name address including postcode telephone number also if he does have it send it recorded delivery so it has to be signed for also wait 24-48 hour for the funds to clear first before you ship it out

You request the money from him. Take the money out of your paypal to your bank. Then if he tries to get his money back it won't be there. He can always try and file a dispute but you will be alerted that he did and you get a say in it. So just provide screenshots if he does that.

he will only need your user name on paypal which would be your e-mail for the account so there shouldnt need to worry as he would need your password to gain access to your account as i said when he has paid ship it out 24-48 hrs after payment has cleared (remove funds from account) and send recorded delivery
