I finally (think) I sold my Solo X. Craigslist really works, and I did not see that coming at all. Some guy from Wisconsin, but resides in London, is sending me a money order for 520 dollars for my 10. I've accumulated (with this) 1030 dollars, and I can finally do some upgrades with the system! If Christmas treats me well I could pull in another 3-400 hopefully. Start throwing crazy ideas at me. I think my first purchase will be a new head unit assuming I don't get it for Christmas, but people throw out some ideas for upgrading. I'm wanting to go with 2 15's, I think. I thought about 3 12s but I heard it gives you a weird configuration. I also heard JL is good with 3 because they have strange configs to begin with. Any truth? Any suggestions? Thanks, boys!

Reece be sure to cash the money order first before sending the sub! There is a lot of bogus money orders out there, trust me... I get fake sh!t from Africa, Australia and Canada all the time.. Polo. :-)

PS- This is why a lot of peeps won't sell overseas.

Yeah well he's in Wisconsin. Thanks for the advice. I'll make sure to cash the money order. What will happen to me if I go to cash it and it is fake? Reprecussions on me? Or what should I do if I come upon that? He said teh type of money order it would be. I looked it up and it's legit, so I guess I'll just wait and see. Thanks again for the heads up.

Anyways, what about suggestions? I'm still thinking SSDs with a kicker 1500.1 on it. I thought about the sundown amp, but I'm not sure if the group buy is still going on.

you wont get in trouble if someone sends you a fake. just make sure you have green in your hands before you hand over the sub.

Hmm... I'll try to get in that. The guy also left me his number. I'm probably gonna call him, and just see if he sounds legit just to make myself feel better. Polo, you made me realize just how naive I am, haha.

This is why I allow 3 days for clearance on money orders, up to 10 days on personal checks, 7 days on business checks. When I get funds into my PayPal account I immediately move the funds to my 1st nank account then wire them to move it to another account that PayPal has no access to. I do the same for Business/personal checks. When I get screwed it wasn't because I wasn't carefull! Polo.. :-)

Even if you cash the money order, the bank gives you cash, Then the bank sends the money order to the originator, (Western union, whatever) they then inform the bank its fake, all this takes up to 30 days after you have your cash in hand. Then out of no where, the bank deducts the money back from your account, then its up to you, not the bank, not western union, to get the cash back from the sender of the money order. And if that person is not in the us, or cant be found, due to fake ID whatever, your out of the item, shipping and whatever money you thought you were getting for the item. When dealing with online transactions, INSIST the use an escrow service. This removes all fraud purchases. Even if they send the escrow a fake money order, its on them not you.
Good luck with that.

Tell him to send the money to An escrow service. If he is unwilling, Walkaway from it. If you send him that sub You might as well send it to me. Either way you won get money. Ill even pay the shipping since your willing to give it away for free.

Dude if its on craiglist, Sell LOCALLY.
