I repeat DO NOT WIRE MONEY TO ANYONE TO BUY ANYTHING. DO THE DEAL IN PERSON, GET A BILL OF SALE THAT IS NOTARIZED FOR YOUR PROTECTION.
And get it in your possession as well. I always load up and strap down before the money/check comes out. I leave it in the glove box with the dog in the cab and she is very protective of her truck.
