Maybe i'm wrong but.
If they are genuine then should be able to put it into their bank and get a transfer . Easy.
Maybe a 1-2k deposit in cash?
What normal folk seriously carries that amount of cash nowadays? Knowing a bank won't talk it all at once.
Hmm suspicious, best be prudent.
Just my 2p worth.
Had my R up for sale for a while, dropped the price recently and interest has been picking up.
Ive had a couple genuine people show interest, but one called me today and wants to pay cash tomorrow morning.
I have the obvious concerns, fake notes etc.
But the biggest one is having over 20k cash and trying to put it in to the bank, of buying another car for cash.
No showroom or auction house will take 20k or more cash, due to anti money laundering etc
Also if I take that to the bank to deposit, the alarm will go off. I know they will freeze my account and ask for proof of funds, which I can of course provide a sales invoice, as well as screen shot of advert and receipt of when I originally bought it. But they could say easily refuse as they still dont know where that money came from before the car was purchased.
I am not desperate to sell, but I have been trying to sell for a while and the market is dead.
Maybe its best to hold out a bit for a bank transfer guy
