Not important but, a receipt is proof of where the money came from and ownership has changed. Just in case something unusual happens before the title is transferred, this is FL as you know. Jim

I don't trust anyone that will not look me in the eye and will not give me their name. Period.

I like the cash. I'd be skeptical of anybody who wanted to pay with a check. I don't want to deal with anybody requiring to be nameless. I can't see why a legitimate buyer'd demand to be anonymous.

Odds are, if it stinks . . . it's rotten.

I had a small pop up camper advertised on my Internet site. A guy I never heard of called me from three states away, and wanted to buy it sight unseen. He wanted to pay me immediately with a wire transfer and pick up the trailer in one week. I took the deal.

The wire transfer was good. The guy came on the day he promised. I liked him. He had me go through all the set up steps and he took the trailer and the title. I like cash better, but the wire transfer went okay. I accept wire transfers for new out of state tenants with no problems.

I've sold several cars in the high five figure and low six figure range and did not know the buyers until the deal was done. Highly recommend that you use wire transfers between banks and/or a brokerage house. I will not do a cash deal for more than $8,000 as that triggers some interesting looks at the bank. I know, they tell you $10,000 is the number that requires you to fill out federal forms. I call BS on that!

There are a lot of good reasons why a buyer will not disclose his name until the deal is done. Jacking up the price as mentioned above is one!

Just as a sidebar, I did have two bad wire transfers. The transfer went through, the funds were posted to my account, and the next day the funds were removed from my account. The originating bank simply pulled the funds back.

I also had a title insurance company issue me a bad cashier's check at the closing of the sale of my house. Before that, I didn't know a bank could stop payment on a cashier's check. They can . . . and they did.

Perhaps the buyer is someone famous? Dale Ernhart Jr. has an older Airstream. I bet he didn't call up the seler himself.

Then again, why wouldn't an agent give you a name?

Why does a name matter? Cash speaks for its self. Take the money and run

What Doug said, for sure...

I have done dozens of wire transfers. According to the bank manager it is the safest way to do it. He also clearly stated, once wired it CONNOT be reversed. Maybe an International wire transfer is different that a domestic one. I made a point to have him repeat it to me, once in process, it CANNOT be reversed. I guess the experience Splitrock had was different than mine. I always make sure the money has cleared before the transaction takes place. I often wonder if the guy on the other end views me with just as much suspicion...

I don't understand why so many are saying RUN don't sell.

If someone has "cash" it doesn't sound like a scam if it was a scam a made up name would be given.

Some folks do not want to be hassled with call backs with new offers or having to explain why they did not buy.

Be cautious but don't just say "give me a name or you don't qualify to buy the unit".

When I sold my last trailer the buyer and myself went to my bank, deposited the money and we both signed a "Bill of Sale" and the "trailer title" This was witnessed and notarized by a bank employee.
"Show me the money" - and take it from there with caution.

You know, I told you people all the way back in post 10 who this guy is and what he does for a living. I know some people don't like to be confused by facts once they have formed an opinion, but all you have to do is go to the comments area of the OP's ad, and Google the phone number given. The person's name, address, and website come up in any search. It isn't rocket surgery.
