There is a scam with Western Union money orders under $3000, so watch that.

I think for an overseas buyer I would tell them the payment must be received and clear my bank before I ship. Pretty much takes most of the risk out of it.

i bet it'll be more then a 'lil' hit. goto carmax to get a decent idea of whats the cars worth.

i don't think it's any more hassle then posting up in say the autotrader.

its not really a hassle, people are just making it out to sound worse then it is.

just list the car when people hit you up give them your info, the only thing you have to worry about is some one who wont pay in cash. nothing else you really should worry about, just have them meet you up at your bank for the final deal take there cash put it in your bank and your fine.

only scams your going to run into are people who want ot pay with checks

yeah, i know all the facts and stuff, i should sell to individual but, she owes 14k and it's actually a pretty big hassle to sell it for 11k and i still have to deal with the other 3k, so what i would have to do is get a loan with my truck as collateral in order to pay off her car. Now we would have two loan payments and i dont think that is worth the HASSLE...

neh, i have been doign with craiglist for a lil bit. so far no problems, just the ocassional email trying to scam me. however if you are really worried carbonr1, then repost your car with the summary stating to email you with their contact info if interested. and request it be a phone and no emails addy. and just be careful with the funds they give you, this is always how it is craig list or not (autotraders, newspaper, ebay..) there is always ways to verify the money, and always take down the person info ( license, addy, and etc.)

well at that point your pretty much s.o.l your best bet is gonna be to sell to dealer and try and catch up on your payments with this new car, i hate being upside down in somthing
