Would you accept "concealed cash?"

I have someone wanting to purchase a few items I have for sale-- It's be between $25 and $50.

I'm not sure why but I'm a bit uneasy about how they asked. No feedback anywhere...

I would like the money but... What would you do?

Re: Would you accept "concealed cash?"

You are putting yourself at risk of them saying they sent the money and then leaving neg feedback, just because they say they are sending it does not mean they are KWIM? The reason she is concerned is that they have no feedback.

It's not hard to go to a local PO or bank to get a money order...

No way. There is a reason you arent supposed to send cash through the mail.

It could EASILY come back and bite you in the rear end.

I wouldn't.

It can't be that hard for her to take her money to the grocery store and get a money order, can it?

Why would they do that just to leave you neg feeback? And they should insure it or get DC or something, same with a MO. I dont understand why concealed cash shouldnt be accepted?
