    Looking for advice on wire transfers on a car

    Greenhulk members,

    My buddy just sold his 75 Stingray Vette on EBAY to a dude in Norway. The guy has wired the money into his bank account and my friend is uneasy even though he has been assured by a bunch of people it's ok. Will you guys read what he has been told and let me know if it's bullchit? I appreciate any advice/experinces.

    From my buddy: Let me know what you have heard as far as the problems with the wire transfers because obviously I have been sketchy about this from the get go. We went back and forth about payment options and about giving out information, which is why it has taken so long for this to actually go through. After doing some research online and speaking with my bank wire department (and the international wire department) multiple times, they pretty much told me that there is no way I can get scammed on the wire transfer. They said that once that money is posted to my account, there is only 1 way to get it back out. That is if they sent it to the wrong person, which we know they didn’t because I have all paperwork filled out on to and from, plus I have a bill of sale and the Ebay listing. They said the only other way that money can leave my account and go back to where it came from would be with my (and only my) permission to let it go. So I asked everyone I spoke with, “if you guys get a call in 2 weeks saying that money wasn’t real and it was frauded and we (the other bank) want our money back, you guys will tell them tough $hit that money belongs to our customer.” They all said that is correct, that they will never take that money away from me unless I give them permission or if it was proved to be sent to the wrong person. If you have heard other ways though man, please tell me so I can be prepared and talk to my bank about it! I need to have all details and possibilities before that car leaves my house!

    If the bank says it is there then it is there. Wire transfers between financial institutions are very secure and legit. He is thinking more of the money order problems where a MO is submitted to the bank and they go ahead and release the funds to the customer before verification is completed and then the MO is found to be fraudulent. I have made international wire transfers from foreign countries and it is a pain in the ass to send them. It would be very difficult to send a fraudulent wire transfer unless it is a movie.

    if his bank says its good then its good! have the bank print what they said on paper for piece of mind for him.. and dont send the car before getting the money in his hand.. and if he losses the sale becasue of (it taking too long ) or what ever.. then its better then loosing the car

    Here is what I do when I am skeptical. Allow the transfer but tell the customer it will be 30 days before shipping to verify the money. If its a large suma nd overseas it seems the only way to do it anymore.
