Well no better folks to ask than my fellow forum members. I've got an offer on the hook that I would be silly to refuse. My fiance and I discussed it and of course fuel mileage is an issue. She has an 01' Hyundai Elantra with about 120K on it. It still runs decent but is not good during the winter here in the Northeast. The FJ we're considering is a loaded auto pretty much all stock with the exception of sliders and TRD wheels. It's an awesome deal however the vehicle is in another state which would require me to fly my father down and pick it up and bring it back. The owner wants a wire transfer to his bank account. Is there anyway for me to have some kind of insurance on my deposit and final payment? What would y'all recommend I do so that both parties are insured against fraud? He wants a deposit and wire tranfer to his bank account upon which he will overnight me the title so I can insure and recieve the vehicle. I don't think I'm comfortable with that. Please post any ideas that are suitable for both parties. I need some input. Thanks!
