OK - here's my current stance.
If the buyer needs to pick up the car a certain day - I let him take the car, but no Title until the money clears. DO NOT involve any of my bank accounts. CASH free and clear. If the money doesn't come through, stolen vehicle report.
(the vehicle is owned free and clear and already cancelled the insurance ( maybe a bad move with the ins.))
If I have to post a stolen vehicle, I think there are are a few around here that would help me find it
I think A few would bring out "the bat" and give me a hand getting it back.
The stolen Cig. thread is a great example.
Appreciate the help guys.
