Tell her that you will only send the deposit with a vin, contract and bill of sale. Still, this one smells really bad. Any reasonable seller should realize that cash on the barrel is the best deal for both buyer and seller. The fact that they are not open to this raises a red flag. I'd say that it's time to walk and take the negative feedback. The only thing you can do is to post are reply to the feedback and hope the reader understands.

Cord, why would you even do that? I wouldn't send this scumbag a dime, no matter what they offered to send me. This is a scam, plain and simple. I'll bet you a trailer I don't own on it.

Yea, you're right. Cash on the barrel head only, and even then I'd do a title search. I only put that in because OG had offered it.

Have your friend in Florida set up an Escrow closing with a local attorney, I am sure he has one. Once done that should satisfy anyone legit.

About a year ago there was a 41 Apache on E-bay. The owner of the boat didn't even know it was on there. Some shady character coppied some pictures and was trying to get people to send down payment money to Belgrade, Yogoslavia. Be very careful.
