Re: [DML] Re: selling a D overseas

Ryan -

It is my understanding that what you describe is exactly the 
case.  If, for example, a wire or check - any banking instrument - 
was funded with monies that turn out to be fraudulent, then yes, the 
bank will hold you responsible for those funds.  This is especially 
insidious if the funds were laundered through one or  several 
transactions and banks with a tangled paper trail that takes months - 
or even a year - to untangle.  The problem I was facing was that 
because Nigerian scams have begun to run through UK banks, this could 
have been the case.  I'm not saying it was the case, but the 
possibility was there, and outside the US I had no legal 
recourse.  From emailing back and forth with the English buyer, he 
seemed very sincere and righteous but.....ya never know.

I finally decided to sell 10440 to a guy from New England and will be 
shipping it this week.  He seems sincere too and, if need be - I have 
a cousin who's an attorney in Boston to fall back on.

The buyer's name is Jason and I am strongly encouraging him to join 
the DMC News Group.

So yes, the scamming business IS worse than you thought.

Thanks all for all the input and warnings 
guys.............................LP and 10440
