Craigslist scam or legit?

Has anyone ever bought from someone on Craigslist selling at wholesale prices referring to themselves as a "dealer"? Not incuding cars.

I've been looking around to purchase one of the new Xbox 360 Slims and decided to check out Craigslist. One guy is listing the Xbox 360 4gb slim for $160 which is $40 off retail. Sent him an email asking about it, guessing it was used.
He responded back and said he's a "dealer" who works with wholesalers, also sells "movie tickets, laptops, digital cameras, video games, etc". Couple other lines from his email:
"All my products are NEW and manufacturally sealed. I have receipts for proof. I just sold a PS3 a few days ago. I work with wholesalers and get a cut."
I wasn't sure what to make of this guy, sounds sketchy but may be hard to argue with if they are actually factory sealed.. not sure what the receipts would proove. It's important to note this would be picked up in person, not to be confused with any of that money order / shipping nonsense.
Anyone come across this or something similar before? Thoughts?
