I thought about wiring, but when I read about how my bank handles it, it sounded like it could take a couple of days for personal accounts. It didn't say anything about being able to call in a wire. It said go to my bank and wire it to the other bank. Maybe I'll stop in when I get a chance and ask.
I think the only way this deal would happen now is if the guy brought the boat to me and went to my bank with me. And I seriously doubt if that's an option.
I guess the question of "How do you wanna be paid?" needs to move up to the top of my list. If it's cash, as in real dollar bills, I'll just move on.
It would be nice if I could find a boat I wanted in my own area. Guess I'm just too picky ... but that ain't gonna change.
BTW, I just watched an episode of The First 48 a couple of weeks ago where someone was lured to Dallas to buy a car by an ad on the Web. It was a setup. They knew the guy was bringing cash and they killed him. The ultimate example of what can go wrong with cash.
