    Default Is it safe to send cash in the mail?

    The guy i'm buying from has a P.O. Box in Florida but he only deals in cash. Once he recieves it he will then forward me the tickets. Seems fair enough. I know i'm just being paranoid but this is safe right? It's a pretty good deal, I don't want to pass it up. It's a 3 day pass for only $325 not bad for a guy that didn't get his tickets in time. This guy is a saint for helping me. Who else has done this?

    Im really not sure, why use a p.o box?? if it doesnt go right you will have no cover....you won't even have an address for him so you wont be able to trace him...I personally wouldnt do it...good luck tho.x

    Well wish me luck, he actually understood my nervousness and said it was ok to send him $200 now and then the rest when I get the tickets. I'm golden!

    You can't lose something you never sent to someone who does not exist.

    Why would anyone in their right mind send CASH to a complete stranger?????? Furthermore if it gets lost in the mail or stolen, you're fucked.

    "a guy that has a P.O. box in Florida wants cash on the mail"
    that is not a con artist, con artist are smart.

    You guys are rude. I simply need tickets bad and nobody else is selling them affordable and rather than give advice some of you are just flat out rude. I sent the money today so hopefully you will be proven wrong and you will see there still are some honest people in the world. He gave me his PO box so I doubt he would lie, plus he's being honest by not taking all my money until I get the tickets. Only 200 now. It was on craigslist so it's safe.

    Seems to me that in EVERY OTHER THREAD that faxman has been a part of he's shown more wit than to send $200 down payment to some random guy in FLA for a transaction based soley on good will. If the deal is real, it's about as high risk of getting took for your money as they come. Hope you don't get hosed.

    faxman, keep your shenanigans to your self. Keep in mind people are legitimately trying to use this message board as a resource to dispense or acquire tickets. Do you really have this much spare time? The reason I'm still posting under the tickets thread is because I still have 1 more three day pass to acquire. (and yes, I have found one of my needed passes through this forum) So please find something better to do, or at least post under other threads. Your distractions are unnecessary at the very least.

    No. No. and No again.

    Paypay or COD would be the only method I'd use.

    for the person who just discovered the internet and was asking what craigslist was. http://craigslist.org/ then click on the city closest to you on the right. much useful stuff there.
