Never, ever accept a check unless it's a certified check or a cashiers check, and never make a transaction unless it's during business hours. People who are trying to scam you will set up a time to pick up the merchandise when the banks are closed so you can't verify anything. Make sure you find out how your customer is going to pay. If it's not cash tell him only certified or cashiers check. Get the buyers name & address, the name, address, check number, and the person he deals with at the bank or financial institue that the check is coming from. Call information in that city & ask for the number of the bank, call the bank & verify the check. Don't call the banks number that the buyer gives you. It may be a bogus number he set up with a friend. Let your banker know you will be coming in with a check for a large amount and he can inspect & verify it for you also. Don't let yourself get ripped off !!

I don't think the guy had a consience- I think he had second thoughts about playing mystery date in a federal penitentary.

Well, I guess maybe that is the modern day equivalent of a consience. A guilty A-hole...

Recently sold boat and had to wait 5 days for checks to clear as they were processed out of state (local bank), found out that stop payments could be put on at any time on any type of check. My recomendations would be to only accept wire transfer, if not at least hold title until checks clear--this does not occur at the same time they tell you that the funds are available. SELLER BEWARE

Wild Wild Wild story Kurt!!!!!!!!!! You friggin lucked out, or the guy was on the up-and-up and just had transfer problems, then to red-faced to come back. If he was ripping it off, and he got scared, he would have just dumped the thing somewhere. Just what I was thinking.

Was that the duct-taped trailer that you brought your TopGun home on? Whoa!
