I'm not used to the cesspool of the internet. I don't know if this is just a bullheaded guy, or a scam. I've not delt enough selling large items online to feel comfortable with this. I'm in Michigan, supposed buyer is in VA (maybe). I sold my 59 on evilbay after all the local trader magazines, online classifieds, and hemmings failed to produce anything other then low-baller tire kickers. So, it sold on ebay. Buyer called me and sounded legit. Said he would get a cashier's check mailed off to me and would work on transport arrangements once my bank said the check cleared. He called from a number that was a Washington DC phone# on caller ID. However, the next day he calls me and says he was planning on getting a loan check from the bank to pay for it...but the bank wouldn't give him the loan to buy the car unless I filled out a whole bunch of paperwork. I told him that was a no-go, and per the terms of the auction, it was cash or cashier's check, any payment other then cash had to clear the bank to my satisfaction before the car or title would be released. Next, he calls back and says he can pay for it out of personal funds, and will supply a cashier's check drawn on a bank from VA, but he would have a 'friend' pick up the car and title and give the check at pickup. I told him his friend was more then welcome to drop off a check, but the car and title would not be released until my bank said it was OKAY. He got very combative at this, so much to the point that it makes me think something is funny. I told him if his friend wants to pick up the car, have him bring cash and he can take the car and title right then. He got upset with this and accused me of trying to sell a stolen car since I wasn't willing to do it his way. Now, the guy claims he is out of the country in Russia on business until November. Am I correct this whole thing stinks?
