Are they bringing cash, or certified cheque, or some other form of payment ?
Take whatever they bring you, to your local bank, have them verify it in front of both of you, and complete your sale.

i think he said someone about wiring money..he didnt want to come over border with a bunch of cash.
and he must have a broker come get boat, as he cant cross border...

thanks for advice...
as anyone doesnt want to get screwed over...i never have ,,but .........................

Wire transfer is the safest and quickest for your back to verify the funds are in US dollars....certified checks, money orders are easy to fake..........jmo done it several times over the yrs

Cash can be counterfeit as well, so make sure to get a testing pen/marker.
