Default Whadya think???

Ok maybe you guys can help me on this one. Been back and forth with this guy and he seems like he really wants the car. Hes owned a couple similar to it in the past. He wanted to know if I could bring the car to the transporter, then he said the transporter would come to me. I informed him that I would not release the car until the certified bank check cleared his bank and mine. He's still interested. He now wants me to fax a copy of the title to his "banker" so hes got something for his file. Sound fishy to you? Or is this a reasonable request. I figured I could make a copy of it and then write COPY ONLY in big black letters before I fax it to him. What do you guys think. Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks

You should be able to right up a purchase agreement that would satisfy a bank. I am an underwriter for a bank and speak from experience. It is easy to tell someone to bring cash but there are not to many banks that are going to hand cash to someone to go buy a car. If he is getting a loan then you can fax the purchase agreement to his bank and even cordinate a bank to bank wire transfer for release of funds.

You dont need a copy of the title to get a loan?If he gets a loan for the car? He should be able to get cash for the purchase of the car on approval from the bank?Cash is the best way to deal!

I would continue to try and contact him before I did anything and at that time he can tell you the banks number and his load officer...From there you should be able to verify the validity of his claims and calm yourself also...If you do fax a copy then by all means put "copy" on the title copy you send to his bank...

Be very careful with this transaction is my advice also...It may be 100% on the up and up but may not be...You need to keep posting the results and get opinions...These guys have seen and heard about all the scams out there so far...

This guy lives in South Dakota and I live in Florida. I think that is why he is a little cautious. Its not really around the block. But what would be his motive for asking for a copy of the title? Im asking cause Im curious.
P.S. its not a lot of money were talking...under 4k.
