    There is always risk, but to decrease risk, you can:

    Deal out of state perhaps, but never out of country
    Check references
    Send money via credit card or paypal, methods that leave a
    trail and can in cases of fraud allow the opportunity for a
    chargeback. Never send western union or money orders, just
    don't do it. If your seller insists, walk away from the
    deal.
