    My cousin was selling a piece of furniture on a website. People came to the house with cash. She got out her "pen". She told them their money was no good, the bank evidently gave them bad money. They left and she never saw them again but had gotten photos of their tag. Couple days later they were arrested. Funny money, stolen vehicle, bad tags. She turned the information she had over to the authorities which only strengthened their case. We usually donate to the curb.

    I had the same thing happened !! But after persistently changing how/where to send $$, I got the feeling it was a scam since it was all about the money and not the item I was selling. Took to post office upon receiving the money order and sure enough it was a scam. They handled it instead.
    take plenty of pic of family & friends, keep tabs on loved ones but make time for yourself !

    Thanks for posting. I am listing a car on CL this weekend and will make sure I ask for cash only (we are asking $500 or best reasonable offer - so there shouldn't be too much of a problem with cash). My DH will be around for the weekend, so if we get any offers, he will be there with me.

    Great idea taking pic of their license plate. I always take pic of MY plates and keep on my cell phone just in case my car is stolen I can report the plate # to the police.

    The only place that housework comes before quilting is in the dictionary.
