I don’t see it as fishy. If he brought you the deal and it does not close because of what you do, I’d suggest you still owe him his pay. If the seller does something strange that prevents the sale, then is it your vendor’s fault?
I’d say that what needs to be done is a very careful, quick analysis of the situation before paying the vendor. You attempt to find out anything that might cause the sale not to go through. Then, if everything looks good, you pay.
