    Many hams have the mistaken belief that selling equipment "Local Pick-Up, Cash Only" is risk-free. True, it eliminates the risk to the seller of not receiving payment for his gear.

    However, it introduces a NEW RISK -- D.I.Y. US CURRENCY.

    Before you sell "Local Pick-UP, Cash Only" ask yourself: "Can I detect counterfeit US currency?" "Do I want to confront a buyer suspected of tendering counterfeit currency?"

    Remember: printing plates and printing presses are no longer needed to produce D.I.Y. currency. Law enforcement estimates that 80% of all counterfeit currency is made "at home" using computers, scanners, and printers!

    Nothing is ABSOLUTELY risk free!

    This is the disadvantage of old world paper money.

    Accept only Bitcoin.
    Wait for verification.
    Problem solved.

    If you really don't use that "old world paper money", then just send it all my way.

    Nothing in life is risk-free. However, face-to-face greatly reduces your risk of being ripped off.
