These are one of the reasons I always prefer to pay the extra and buy new as so many scams about.
Always get them to boot it up and start a game. Make sure it runs as normal and doesn’t sound funny or anything.
Also check the security seal on it to make sure it hasn’t been tampered with.
How much you paying out of interest?

Good price, definitely check though and ask to test it, if they deny there is probably something wrong
Guessing you are not picking it up from his house where he can show you it in working condition and connecting to xbox live?

Failing that, can you ask for the serial number (or better, a photo of the serial) so you can give microsoft a call ahead of the exchange to check?
i am im going to his flat and hes going to let me try it out question is what do i need to check for and how do i see if its been banned etc ?
So does just connecting it to the internet automatically show up as a banned console then ?
The ban is xbox live (gold). I've never dealt with a ban but if you can physically start any multiplayer game where you play with or against any other humans you should be good.

Microsoft can console ban. However as far as I’m aware, there are no Xbox modifications out besides emulators. So it shouldn’t be console banned unless they messed around with developer kits, only 360s got that punishment.
