Help with laptop purchase in Norfolk, VA

Hello all,

It's been a while since I've posted but I'm still a D90 & D110 owner.

I have a lead on a laptop for sale in the Norfolk, VA area but the seller wants a cash, local sale (understandable).

Can anyone help me out with this? I can provide all my contact information and will send you payment immediately upon your purchasing the laptop, or before if you like. I can deposit money directly to your Bank of America account (this would be the fastest way) or we can work out any arrangement.

Thanks in advance!


-Arthur

Arthur, if this can wait until next week (Tuesday/Wednesday), I'm heading down to Virginia Beach, I can pick it up.

PM if this works for you.

My advice, if they want to deal in cash and won't ship DONT BUY IT... PayPal offers a modicum of security... Buy local.

How much of a deal can it be, really? It's going to cost $40 to ship (with insurance) and someone like an hour of time to get it... Also there is extreme exposure for the person who brings cash to a meeting like this... Could be dangerous, you don't want that on your conscience

Good points and why I meet in public places and will have a co-worker with me!

Look at it from the perspective of the seller... Some guy out of state interested in purchasing a locally listed laptop, could be a scam as well.

Jason,

I've performed many transactions on Craigslist with cash only and have never had an issue.

Please stick to the topic . I'm not seeking advice, just help!


Ade,

Thansk for the offer. I will let you know. Just waiting to hear from seller.
