I am currently looking at purchasing a boat where I would have to fly to go see it and then either tow it back or have it shipped back to me. I have emailed the guy a couple times and he has sent me pics, etc. and it seems legit, but some of it still seems too good to be true to an extent. I am just really worried about getting screwed over and flying out there and then there's no boat, etc.
The guy I've emailed said he would like some type of payment using a 3rd party so he knows I'm serious about buying the boat because he would have to fly into town to meet me where the boat is as well. He said one guy has already screwed him over and he flew in to show him the boat and the guy wasn't approved for a loan.
Anyways, is there any reliable 3rd party payment option out there where I can send the money to showing I'm serious about buying the boat and then can release the money once I've seen it, etc.? Thanks for any help.
