[DML] Re: selling a D overseas

None of this is meant to imply that every offer from overseas (to the
US) is bogus. It is just that it is harder to handle the transaction
and it seems to be a very common scam with some countries in
particular. I just recently sold a car to a person in Russia. It took
some trust on the part of both parties to make it work since neither
of us met. In fact overseas transactions are becoming more and more
popular because of the currency exchange rates making buying things in
the US a bargain even with the customs, taxes, and transportation
costs. Any transaction of this magnitude must always be made
carefully, neither party wants to get burnt. The bottom line is to be
cautious. Not only in overseas transactions but even a domestic sale.
I recently purchesed a car from California. I didn't go there, I used
a trusted 3rd party to inspect and handle the transaction for me. It
cost a small amount to do it that way but it made me more comfortable
doing it by "remote control". I have not seen it but I have heard of
cases where banks have been scammed by wire transfers. I would not
accept one from Nigeria or England. It seems the entire banking
industry of Nigeria is corrupted and it has spilled over to England
where many of Nigeria's transactions get funneled through. Cash can be
couterfeited but it is relativey easy for ANY bank to tell fake money.
It is harder for every bank to tell if a particular bank check is
phoney especially if it is not theirs. I had one that looked perfect.
I took it to my bank and they told me it looked good to them but they
said I should take it to the bank it was drawn on, only they can
verify it's authenticity. When I did they said it WAS good, but it had
been used on another transaction 1 year ago and it is now no longer
good. That is why you MUST be suspicious when you do not get the EXACT
amount you wind up agreeing to. That's because the scammers are
working with financial instuments that already have the amount set so
they are trying to set up deals with amounts close to the phoney
documents. NEVER agee to give money back to the buyer! That request
should send up the red flags!!!!
