Anyone unwilling to inspect a sizable purchase in person with a check in hand that you clear at your local bank prior to signing over title isn't worth considering (my opinion.)

Be careful of cashier's checks these days. They will clear your bank and all looks well - the feds have a requirement that banks clear them within 2 or 3 days.

BUT...if it's a scam the issuing bank will NOT clear them and this can take several weeks, it comes back to bite you when your bank says the check really wasn't good after all and they want their money back. Any more, it's CASH ONLY to be safe.

Yeah, any time there is a "courier" involved, you're looking at a scam. I wouldn't waste my time trying to return the scam, though - they are running thousands of these efforts at any given time and are just going to move on to the next potential victim.

I list stuff for sale on craigslist once in a while and the reponses that make me immediately hit the delete button (aside from the obvious courier bringing a suitcase full of too much cash) are the ones that talk about "the item" without actually saying what I'm selling. Like, "can you tell me if the item is still available?" types of generic responses. Straight to the trash folder.

Get a certified check on a US Bank.

Certified Checks

There are now scammers that will catch you with fake certified checks. Cashier checks have been vulnerable for some time. How about a wire? Unfortunately, they sometime cost extra.

Any other "safe" ways to accept money short of cash. I like the idea of going to a bank and conduct the transaction if that gives any more safe guards, what makes that safer?

When we bought our Scamp 5er, my wife and the owners wife went into a bank, we had to drive 25 miles to find a Bank of America, and did the transaction in cash. We both were happy doing this way.

The four Trilliums I have were all purchased with cash. If I were selling, I would require the same.

Agree David. I purchased my Scamp by drawing the money out of the bank in cash and arranging to meet at a DMV office with the title. I wrote up an additional little Bill of Sale, and all went smoothly. They left with the cash, I left with a title to my new/old Scamp. No Scamp Scam was had!

Me and Harry were both Wells Fargo Customers, went to the local branch and did a transfer frommy acount to his. Its documented and the camera was rolling. Keeps it legitamate. Now I sold my other homebuilt trailer on ebay, had her pay with paypa since she isn't coming to get it for 3 weeks so transfered the funds to my own bank account... then she gets the title... not before.

All my craigslist deals are done with cash, and the cash stays hidden in the vehicle until I'm ready to buy, just in case. When I am ready, I have the cash in one hand, and the other hand is close to the CCW. Call me paranoid, but there are too many nutjobs out there to be walking around with thousands in cash otherwise.

That being said, within 30 seconds of showing up to buy my camper, it was 99.9% obvious I was dealing with a decent person.

If your spidy senses are tingling, there's probably a reason.

I sold a boat on craigslist and the guy came and looked at it, loved it, and paid me 9k in 20's on a saturday afternon lol. I ended up goin to my parents house and locking it in their safe because my bank was closed and I didn't want to make like 50 deposits into the MAC machine lol...too easy for a problem to happen.

Anything over $10k in cash, the bank has to fill out a CTR, currency transaction report.
