If I was the seller, I would prefer arrangements other than cash.  Money can be counterfeited like anything else.  That's why retailers have those gold pens they swipe the dead presidents with.

If I was trying to convert counterfeit bills to real money the last thing I would buy would be a bus conversion.  It would be hell to sell one.  I would buy stuff like gold jewelry that any pawn shop would pay cash for.

I personally would feel pretty safe taking $100 bills for my bus if I was selling it.  I suppose I could take the cash to a bank before handing over the vehicle.

I would consider handling everything in a safe place.  Perhaps in your bank.  You could arrange with a bank officer to withdraw and hand over the cash while you both are there.  I would understand that the seller does not want to worry he is taking a bad check, however that bank could even issue a bank check on the spot to he knows that it is real.  Then, if there is a title problem, there would be a paper trail.  I once bought a car that way. Further, since bank officers are often notaries, you could have him verify the transaction in some way.  Another option could be to use the AAA, the DMV, or a lawyers office in some way.  It is not right to ask to increase your risks to minimize his.  Remember, con man commonly manipulate honest person's trust and enthusiasm.

 I once had a guy trying to sell me a bus that was not his.  I lost my deposit on that one.  Even though he was caught and prosecuted, I did not get any money back.

Marc,

If the guy is 80 years old, and since you have met him, I wouldn't sweat it. Don't worry about it. You will be fine. I have had a lot more then 10K cash with us. No problems.

No worries. You have it covered. Just watch out for his kids Grin. They might be the shady ones Cheesy.

God bless,

John

Looks like this bus isn't the one after all.  After much consulting and a ton of pictures analyzed, I got some wise council from a rust expert telling me to walk away...  I will follow the advice of the expert.  So the search continues and the cash stays under my mattress! Grin

Hi Clifford,

I will try to upload the pics for you to see or PM me your email address and I will send the crucial ones to you.  It was disappointing, but if there is a glimmer of hope, I'm open to it.   Huh Undecided
