If might be a bit too early to get excited about it yet.
I agree with Wendy that you should start doing some homework on this guy, if you have not already done so.
Does this person selling the Cypress post here regularly?
Is he/she a known entity on these boards?
Do you know his full name?
What drop zone he jumps at?
These little tidbits of info always help to prevent a problem.
If I am going to buy something (and I have bought a complete rig on the classifieds) I do all this homework prior to actually sending ANY money.
Also, sometimes (and I was able to) arrange for a UPS COD shipment.
If I was to buy something from dickslap who just registered on here yesterday and has 3 posts, and only in the classified I might be a bit suspicious until I verified who he/she was.
If however I was to try to buy something from Thanatos I would trust him, BUT I would also make sure he sent me boobie pics to verify it was who I was dealing with.
Good luck, it should work out for you.
