im trying to buy this car but im a bit concerned about the transaction method the seller is proposing.
ou will have to send the money into an account at ebay.your money will
remain there till you will get your car.
If we decide to proceed with this transaction, I will have to contact eBay and
provide them all the necessary information, so they can start the process right
away. I will need your full name and address for that. You will receive a
notification from eBay shortly after that, together with all the instructions to
follow and the invoice as well. Regarding the payment, you will be instructed to
deposit the money to an eBay account. They will hold and insure your money until
receipt of the car in good condition. That is how their buyer protection policy
works. As far as the seller concerns, I will be glad to know that eBay has the
possession of the money during the delivery period. That is my insurance. As soon
as I will have the confirmation from eBay that the funds have been deposited into
their account, I will immediately start the shipping process. The car will be
delivered to your address in no more than 3 working days. You will be given a 5 days
inspection period from the day you receive the car at home. If you decide to hold
the car, then you will have to authorize eBay to release the funds to me, and the
transaction will be completed. If you will not be satisfied with the car, you will
be able to send the car back through the same shipping company, and ask eBay to
return the funds to you.

Ebay doesn't even have an in-house escrow service.
