I got my boat all sorted out and the deal is set, but we are having issues actually paying for it. The seller is to worried about being scammed to give me his bank details so that I can transfer the money into his account. This comes from phone calls, 2 months worth of emails, I paid for a mechanical inspection, gave him a copy of my license all my details and contact numbers. I also gave him the details of my importer who has called him. He is still not prepared to give me his bank details so that I can go to my bank and wire the money to him. I really dont want to use escrew or western union as they skim money off an already overbudgted cost by me. What else can I do to get this deal done, he went and talked to bank of america in his town and they said they advise against it cos it sounds like a scam. I am Australia, I am importing the boat here. This is all setup and ready to go, how the hell do I steal money from someones account with there bank details???? this is getting on my nerves and has been about 2 weeks in discussion, Im ready to just tell them either finish the deal or i go elsewhere. Anyone offer any advice at all please, anyone would think its him transferring the money to a stranger......i am the one parting with it.
