I recently contacted a dude on craigslist that's selling this marvelous piece of metal http://imgur.com/a/S0klF#0 for $3550. He took the deal off the table last night but put it back on after another interested buyer withdrew.
But there's a problem. The car is in Wyoming and the seller wants to ship it from there. (No additional charges.) As you can imagine, this makes me a little suspicious. You never know when a Craigslist post is not trustworthy. I contacted him about this, and he sent me the following reply:
"Due to the urgent nature of sale, the acquisition process will be conducted through the third party payment platform provided by Google Checkout. They basically implement a secure and controlled environment that allows the payment transfer between buyer and seller. Please note that a refundable deposit will be paid (50% of the total price), as proof of your intention to complete the purchase transaction. The money will be held in trust by Google Checkout."
How does this sound to you guys? I don't know if I should trust him on this matter or just not go through with the process. Any advice would be appreciated. :/
