I can attest to that.

I can also attest to the fact that many Jeep sellers think they can recover all the money they put into their rig "plus labor". Not gonna happen.

I've been looking for a new project and I can't believe the number of people who say "I don't really need to sell it so I'm asking XXXXX" or "I've got over $10k invested in it, I can't take less than $12k". If you're going to sell it, sell it, but don't ask some outrageous price because you put a boat load of time and cash into it. Check the market and sell it for a comparable price. If you truly don't have to sell it, or are too attached to it to sell it, put it back in the garage.

If they make the funds available, then tell you the check didn't clear, you can't sue them as they did nothing wrong by law. Sucks, but that's reality.
Correct JEK3

It happened to me on a small transaction and the bank also charged a fee to me.

HAHA, If this is the case, which it does sound like it is and I don't doubt the truthfulness of your posts, I'd at least be calling the local news station to attempt to shame said bank for this nonsense.

In case you haven't noticed, I dislike banking institutions. Only after the disgrace the banking industry has become in recent history has this become the case.

That Craigslist scam mentioned earlier is serious. They will often try to play on your heartstrings- "I'm a deployed soldier in Afghanistan..." and then proceed to talk to you about how they'll get you the funds and their buddy will come pick it up. And yes, your bank has every right to pull the money back out of your account if it doesn't clear, same as they do with any check. Cash is the only way to go. It's on you to be vigilant and not get scammed.

Awwm an that's a new scam? I am deployed and I guess trying to explain why my GF has to pick item X up isn't going to fly anymore.

Yeah because:
1. People always carry around a suitcase or duffle bag full of money
2. Your gun will make the deal go smooth


OP:

When dealing with "cash". One process I have used is to buy the vehicle, boat etc is to write the personal check and then pick it up after it has cleared. Nobody wants to let someone drive away without the money in your account and nobody believes in honesty anymore either. If they don't want to give you a check without the keys in their hands, oh well.

Cash or a bank draft. Drafts get cashed at their bank, then keys handed over.

If you have the funds to cover a personal cheque, no reason you can't bring the cash.

Call them directly, they can increase your ATM limit (usually $600) temporarily for just a few hours. I once got $7000 out of several ATMs to buy a truck. USAA has the best customer service EVER, you can always get a person on the phone.

Jks aren't real jeeps compared to TJs. Which aren't real jeeps compared to YJs. Which aren't real jeeps compared to Cjs. Which aren't real jeeps compared to Willys. Which aren't real jeeps either, compared to covered wagons.
