Your only real way to protect yourself and keep the dealer happy is to pay
by CC, but to offer the dealer a 5% increase to pay the commission.....

The other possibility is that the sale is not going through his store, but
through his own bank account, or a friends.  He is then trying to avoid
taxes in some way.  Not your issue, but a problem you must deal with.

Try it out.. if he refuses, I would pass on the deal.....It smells bad...

BTW, the character in Switzerland did scam at least 1 buyer out of $3000....
so be careful... CC work, but other methods of payment require great degrees
of trust....
