  5. Never under any condition accept a check for higher than the retail value of your vehicle.
  6. Do your homework on an individual or company to ensure that they are legitimate. Would you buy a car you knew nothing about?
  7. Be extra cautious when dealing with buyers or sellers that are not located within the United States.
