ha ha! Can't have the ink all runny...
I was at a Poker game a year or so ago. Someone bought in with a counterfeit bill, lost all his money and left. We didn't discover it was a fake until later. Pretty bad counterfeit too. Practically had a pic of Joe Camel...
Rob, I would usually agree with you regarding 'cash wins'. I've had a lot of deals go bad where people promise they will come by in a few days and don't. Meantime I turn down other offers. I usually won't do that anymore.
When I sold my wheels, I had a guy in OC that was going to come pick them up during the weekend. He got a little bent out of shape when I bumped my for sale posts and Craigslist ad. I told him 'I'll stop by this weekend' usually means 'I'm still thinking about it'... I've lost out on other deals for the same reason. I figure $500 for something today is better than $550 tomorrow.
My wife's boss was looking at a car for his daughter and wanted to leave a $500 deposit and they wouldn't take it. He wanted to hold off 2 days until payday. Sure enough, they sold the car to someone else and he was pissed. I side with the dealer on that one. Why wait for a guy that might change his mind when you can close the deal NOW.
