change your seller preferences. then when you list the countries you want the ad to be visible in, only people from those countries will be able to bid.
you can also revoke his bid if required.

Sounds like my car which I sold last year. Guy from the Ukraine contacts me as he says he desperately wants my car. Will I take a cheque for £5000?

A RHD 2000 Peugeot 306 for a LHD country... Yeah right.

So I sent him a mail back with '419' written in 100pt font.

Bet it wasn't 5000 quid though!
...especially as it was advertised for £1600...
