I've sold a bunch of items on ebay (as well as here), but I now have a new experience and need advice. One item I'm selling there has met the reserve but the bidder has zero purchases and zero feedback. I don't yet know where he is located.

My concern is that this could conceivably be a scam situation that we've all heard the horror stories about.

Any advice on how to protect myself on being sure the sale/buyer is legitimate would be greatly appreciated. I'll definitely wait until the funds transfer from paypal into my bank, but is there anything else I can do to protect myself from paypal coming after the funds if this turns out to be a scammer?
