    If he does not do the right thing by you and deactivate Find my iPhone, then yes this would be scamming you.

    Is the name in the email address the same name as the person who sold you the iPhone? You need to get back in touch with him and he will need to follow these instructions-

    It can be very risky to buy an iPhone online, especially from a private seller on eBay. High tech items, such as iPhones, are one of the most fraud prone areas on eBay. Ideally you should buy from a local seller, where you can inspect the iPhone before paying for it. Buying from a large established seller is much less risky.

    Of course, the best place to buy iPhones online is the Apple online store, which sells both new and refurbished items.

    Apparently they also offer UUID registration if you want to use iOS 8 beta. No reputable developer would do this. I recommend 'extreme' caution.

    And then there is the fact that they even suggest using their software on 'found' stolen phones.

    No, I would not trust these people.
