I am selling a guitar on Gumtree and receive a message from someone who joined in 2018, who asked me:
"I'm interested in the guitar, but in the CBD working 'till Friday than going home to Bali. Any chance you can deliver to my hotel in Darling Harbour?"
TBH, I'm happy to personally deliver to him if he pays the listed price in cash and we meet in the hotel lobby (so I don't get mugged). I'd imagine he is some time poor businessman and would like to give him the benefit of the doubt.
Is there anything else that can go wrong or that I should be aware of? Counterfeit notes? Getting followed back to the train at night from someone who knows I have the cash on me.
It's only a $500 guitar so not super expensive but I can be pretty suspicious of other people's motives.
