Yes, his problem.
Why should he trust you??
After reading all the posts in the scammer section of this forum I would never wire money to someone in advance.
Is it possible to trust anyone over here if you are from outside US?

I know a few people bought cars from the states. When they arrived they were rusted out pieces of shit. Nothing like the ads. When I bought my drag car, I flew to Alabama and test drove it at Montgomery before making a bank transfer. The car was loaded on a transporter and on its way to LA for shipping before I left. It was 33 hours of flying in each direction and about $3,500 but worth it. Woulda cost me a whole lot more if it was a scam. I would never buy a car off Racing Junk without personally going to see it first.
