I am definitely on the more cautious side regarding scams.
I currently have a boat for sale, and it seems 4 out of 5 inquiries are from scam artists. Most want to pay me full asking price without seeing the boat!

Apparently even a Cashiers Check (Certified Cheque in Canada) can be a forgery. The banks sometimes don't find that out until the car or boat has gone. I will only deal with people who personally come and see my boat and who I know something about.

But I know you sold one car to an offshore buyer. Presumably that went well?
