Payment methods
 
In light of all the scams on the rounds at the moment, many of which I think that I'm aware of, does anyone have any advice on selling a rib abroad?(Europe)
A guy from the continent has approached me to buy my boat and I'm pretty sure he's genuine, however he understandably only wants to make one trip and take it home with him. Price is agreed subject to it being as I've described, the question is really about method of payment given that it's not an expensive boat!
Anyone got any good ideas or info on any new fraud schemes?
Thanks!

Absolutely - I sold a small Yacht (Opps swore again) to someone in Brighton who wanted to take it away the same day. I insisted on cash or they would have had to wait for any other payment to clear into my bank before I would sign it over for them to take away.

If you insist on cash and it's a relitivley large sum involved, get the new owners to accompany you down to the bank to pay in! Once in ya account your larffing. Hacks the buyers off a little, but if they really want the sale, insist it's the only way.

Even with cash you have to be carefull - people HAVE been caught with forged money etc!!!

Money laundering is becoming a serious problem in the UK. If someone wishes to pay you a large amount of money then always insist on either an electronic transfer or bankers draft or building society cheque. As well as this obtain an original statement as to origin of the money as if this cannot be provided then you could be prosecuted under the money laundering act. Your bank accounts would then be frozen and the money which you received in good faith taken from you leaving you with nothing, or even a prison sentence.

I say this as I deal with hundreds of thousand pounds a week and have to be very careful as to wear money is coming from.

As already suggested use BACS the bank electronic transfer system, although you have to give him your account and sort code.

Don't do cash thing, can you really spot a forged Euro from a real one ? and who is going to pick up the commission charges on that amount ?

I hope your not exporting a Pacific 22, they are a national treasure and I am sure you need a licence for that sort of thing :D oh and remember the trouble Matrix-Churchill got into for supply military hardware abroad

:D :D :D

And Mark Thatcher, don't think that I;m in his league though. I don;t think one P22 hul is going to tip the balanc of power in Europe iretrievably in favour of Belgium anyway! And if we can sell 'O' class subs to Canada why not P22's to the continent? At least we know they'll be happy and won't try to bring them back!
Sorry to say I am (probably) exporting it though. However this should fund a smaller working rib! Just got to sell the other bits now.
