Yeah, but you can raise a stink with Paypal, and they will halt your account to recoup anything they put a limit up to. In other words, if he uses his Amex, and credits his Paypal Account, Paypal transfers the moolah to my Paypal Account, and I cash it, he can dispute the charge in two weeks, force Paypal to refund his money, and then Paypal freezes my account until I pump X amount back to them to cover their loss. Seen it happen.

I'd use Paypal, just not in a rush like this, and he suggested the escrow direction.

$200 bucks, I would not care, but this, nah, its gotta be a little more solid. I've got the ring insured, so I am protected, but I am really anal on things like this. Its gonna be really hard to explain to State Farm that I shipped the ring out in a sale process, and now claim it stolen.

Deal with Escrow.com The best way to go.

How much feedback does the guy have who wants to buy it?

But then again it was Subway.

I sold my Impala SS on ebay, I met the guy at the airport (not by myself) he drove it, called his bank wired the monies. I called my bank 15 minutes later it was there, I gave him the title and he drove it back to AZ.

If he is wiring the money make sure it is not an ACH. You can back out of a ACH, its alot like a credit card payment. Make sure it is a wire, verify that with your bank.

Best suggestion by far.

Problem now is you can't always trust cash as good either.
Brian,
I will be in Las Vegas this Friday...if you want, I can take care of the transaction for you and help in anyway. I'm actually proposing to my girlfriend this weekend in vegas.
I personally know enough people on this board that you can trust me 110%--- Ask BG1 and BG2, Too Old, HavasuCig, Cigarette1, Tank, etc...
