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?

Transactions must be included in a block to be properly completed. When you send a transaction, it is broadcast to miners. Miners can then optionally include it in their next blocks. Miners will be more inclined to include your transaction if it has a higher transaction fee.

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.
