Anyone bought a car from ebay using the buyer protection scheme/ western union?

Am about to buy a mini that was listed on autotrader, but the seller wants me to pay for it using the ebay buyer protection scheme as she says its safe.

This involves me finding a western union office this pm and forwarding the money to an ebay rep, who wont release the money to the seller until i have received the car and am happy with it.

Does this sound ok?

i went to the nearest western union office, and they were really unhappy about the transaction, and didnt let me go through with it really.
i am glad!
