Re: Will factory reset in recovery delete the internal storage?
Generally speaking, a factory reset will not erase data stored on the internal or external sd card. This data must be manually erased by formatting the sd cards.

I would respectfully as the buyer to erase the internal sd card if they have not already done so. Also, consider changing passwords to services you used on that device, i.e. bank apps, email services, etc, as a precaution.
You should be OK since the sd card (internal) is typically used to store app data (cache), downloads and files that you specify to be stored here.
