Don't send the computer until you have the money in your Paypal account. I don't know how long he has to dispute the transaction but, if there is a problem, insist on a return of the computer before agreeing to refund him. Why don't you read Paypal's policy? Since you are using the service, you ought to become familiar with it. I sold a pricey electronic item about 3 or 4 years ago to a guy across the country that I had on Craigs List. He paid. I sent him the item. He loved it and thanked me. It is not always a scam but, don't be stupid and send the item before you are paid for it.

With Craigslist, deal locally and only in cash.

The email you received was from a scam artist. All emails you receive asking you to accept PayPal and ship the computer are from scam artists.

The scammers send out fake PayPal emails that look perfectly real. However, as they are fake, there is no money and the scammer is just try to get you to ship the computer for free.

refuse. sell in person only and require payment in cash.

and you have to document that the computer works before you do — take video with your phone showing it actually working and the date/time onscreen
