I am buying a bike from someone I have never met or seen before and I haven't seen the bike except in pictures (an original '72 Cinelli SC). The guy seems completely straight forward and has sent me tons of pics, including specific requests from me so I am pretty sure the bike exists and he has access to it. Anyway the amount changing hands is significant enough that I am uncomfortable sending the money before I get the bike and he has the opposite issue. So I investigated escrow services and escrow.com came up and I am wondering if anyone has used them or anyone else? escrow.com will charge 3.25% which is alright (about the same as Paypal fees I think).
