Offers to buy item at agreed price but can only buy using PAYPAL as abroad in army ( or other reasons why cannot contact him and why he cannot come to see goods in person. Asks to pay by Paypal and arrange someone to pick up goods.
Research shows that person can pay by paypal but later have payment reversed. You are left without the money and goods and can only revert to dispute via paypal. Found lots of other people have been scammed by this one with variations of why he cannot be contacted.

Here is an example email from "jim hike"
Hi Thanks for writing back.Right now I cant come to look at the item because of the nature of my job. I am in the army and i work as a Carpentry and Masonry Specialist and i have been deployed from Sembach Air Base, Kaiserslautern, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany to Afghanistan since October. We are not allowed to make or receive calls but we have access to the internet and that is our only means of communication to the outside world. I wouldn't mind seeing a few more pictures and I am ok with your price. Right now the only way i can make payment for it is via PayPal as i don't have access to my bank online and there's no way i can issue out a check or something right now but i have my bank account attached to my PayPal account and this is why i prefer PayPal for payment. I will need your PayPal email address to make the payment and if you don't have an account,its quite easy to setup at www.paypal.com its also the same as paying you directly. I hope you consider this cause i don't want to miss this deal. Since i cant come to view or pickup,after i make payment i'll have someone come help me pick up and store till i get back. Thanks for understanding,hope to read from you soon.
Jim.
