Exactly how I would do it. I would never accept any kind of check for a substantial amount of money from a buyer. It would have to be handed to me by the bank teller.

Better yet just do a wire transfer. Once verified the money is in your account then hand over the keys. That's the preferred way and safest for both buyer and seller. Just make sure the seller is the true owner and is authorized to sell the vehicle.

We had a similar situation happen selling online and was contacted by a scammer. Here is a blog post from our boating site we wrote about it and some helpful tips on not being scammed, https://trawler-beach-house.blogspot.com/2016/07/how-to-avoid-scammers.html . The counterfeit cashiers check looked like a legit check. No local law enforcement or even the post office had no interest in looking into this. Even the bank the counterfeit check appeared to be from had no interest. That's why these people continue to scam folks out of their money. There is no consequences. Not until we stop falling for this nonsense will it finally stop. Chuck

Cheques can be cancelled/found to be bad weeks, months even after they are cashed.

Definitely a scam. I have sold lots of items on craigslist and get those types of responses all the time. I will not even reply to them.

My iPhone 6 has just started tagging some calls as "Likely Scam" rather than a phone number. Something has changed in the cell phone world and I like it.
