At best it sounds like he's trying to avoid PayPal fees; at worst he's a scammer. Paying this way you'd get no protection from PayPal or ebay, so don't go anywhere near it and definitely report it.

This is against eBay rules, so worth reporting him.

Be interesting to see if they have got away with it before though.
