So this guy has some singles he wants to sell on eBay.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/60-GH-S-BFL-Single-SC-ASIC-Bitcoin-Miner-In-Hand-Ready-To-Ship-Pay-With-BTC-/161155908387?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2585a40323

I asked him about doing escrow and he says he won't because he wants immediate payment and won't wait for escrow. Also he wants payment only in BTC no Paypal. Does this seem fishy?

Yep, also against Ebay TOS, so even if the guy does have good intentions, the listing will probably be taken down, and any sort of buyers protection would be nullified.

It's a scam. Never pay irreversible method for ebay items. Otherwise ebay won't help you if it's a scam.

Just report the auction to eBay.

They will nuke it.
