koto update  
So the guy is still in Canada. I think he miss understood me and said that if I wanted to close the deal he'd need a deposit. Since I'm using essentially craigslist, I'd rather wait until he gets back, and if he gets a better offer, then so be it.

While bumping around the net I found a craigslist-montreal listing with the same pictures posted on the same date as the kijiji post. So either he's in Montreal trying to sell it there too, or he just posts ads and tries to scam people. But really, who would scam people with a koto harp?!

I hope he gets back soon. He might not be back until the 6th.

I have enough patience to not be stupid about all this.

Aha. Now I understand. I thought he was a Canadian selling it from Canada, not someone who lives here but is visiting Canada.

Yes, wait until you can get a prompt tracking number, or meet him to see it.
I don't think Craigslist has the same protections that eBay offers, but yes, who would try to scam with something that rare?

If he has relatives in Montreal, it makes sense to try to sell it there assuming he can get it across the border without too much inconvenience.
