    Cashier's checks and certified checks are fine if you know what to do besides just depositing them.

    Within reasonable limits, banks ARE REQUIRED to cash what's called an "ON US" check. If you get a cashier's check or certified check drawn on a major "nationwide" bank, like Chase, Citi, Bank of America, Huntington, Fifth-Third, PNC, or TFC, go to the nearest branch and ask then to cash your check. You'll have to face some anti--fraud procedures and may have to pay a nominal fee, but you'll get your money then and there. If they won't cash your check, ask the branch to at least verify that your item is "genuine". Since these checks are almost impossible to stop, ypou'll have time to deposit the check at your bank. The funds are immediately available to you.

    In a few sales, I've taken PERSONAL (yes, personal) CHECKS drawn on either Chase or B of A and went to the nearest branch & cashed the check before shipping the goods.

    Yes, do not deal with Alan Featherstone it's a scam. He does not give a call sign and asks to send to paypal account: ajm4713@gmail.com . I just recouped my money from PayPal after he claimed to have a filter I needed. BEWARE!

    Just so all of you know, If you will contact Paypal and report the fraudulent email address to them, they will immediately look into the matter. Sometimes you need to play with the scammers a bit to get them to give you their paypal email to send the money to. I spoke with Paypal last night about w5dph.brent@gmail.com and also kelvindickson@seznam.cz his paypal account. They were very appreciative of the heads up and immediately the emails stoped flowing from him to me. When I say I spoke to paypal, they will actually call you back when its a matter of spoofs or scams.

    Here's another one guys, I think his email has been stated in the past. The email hie is using (which is not his) is ac2rwprashant@gmail.com and his name is Prashant Karkare. He tried using a pic off the internet to sell me a Flex 5000C..
