[DML] Re: selling a D overseas

My credentials are 20 years in banking, partly dealing specifically 
with this issue.  I am not "assuming" anything.  Just because it 
doesn't seem right doesn't mean it's not true.  P.S.:  Ryan, I'd 
like to buy your Delorean, I'll wire you the money, or send a 
cashiers check if you prefer.
