I am wondering if there is something I need to watch out for here. I have sold a lot of cars and motorcycles on Craigslist with out any problems. Cash only, no checks. I have a dirt bike listed (24 years old)for $1000 and have a guy call from Los Angeles and wants to buy it. I told him I didn't want to hold it for him and he said he would deposit $100 bucks into my bank account to hold it. I won't do that and told him no. He says he can be here in Sacramento (8 hours away) by noon on Friday this week. I put him off and said some one was coming to see it. He called again later and left a message. I did not return his call and he called again and I figured what have I got to lose. I have told him cash only and he agreed. It makes me nervous that he is so eager to travel 8 hours to buy a bike he has only seen a picture of. Is there some thing for me to watch out for here? I am normally not paranoid but something seems odd. Thanks, RichF.
