Yes, and after that's happened you can call the bank and ask them to stop payment. Read the original post.

I doubt an insurance company would see it as theft when I gave the "thief" the keys and waved goodbye. But I'm not interested in getting...

You didn't read the whole thread, did you?

The guy is a woman and she's already paid for a vehicle inspection and airfares for herself and her husband. As I explained above, I could...

If the buyer pays cash, no one has to trust anyone.

I agree. I'm one of the honest >99% but, as I explained above, I could imagine a situation in which I might entertain thoughts of asking a...

I also have a personal friend who was once (last century) paid for services rendered with a bank cheque that the bank didn't honour (long...

Yes, I understand that. And I trust the buyers. However, imagine they get 100 kms down the road and the car, through no known issue,...

Correct. It's hard for someone to abscond with your house.

I don't think 5-6 days off work, plus accommodation in Sydney will appeal to them.

Would it not be better for the funds to be transferred—and have cleared—into my account? Or are you saying better for *both of us*,...

It's a bank check, not a personal cheque, that we're discussing here. Read my original post.
28/04/2021 - 12:51
Sure, it'll seem suspect. Meanwhile, they have my car interstate and I'm stuck hassling my bank to hassle their bank to get the money. No...

My bank, Macquarie, has one branch, which isn't open on Saturday, and even if it was, successfully depositing the cheque isn't the issue....

How, exactly, would I cancel my car after they've taken it?

I've sold my car to someone interstate for ~ $17K. They've deposited $500 into my bank account. They're flying up on Saturday to take the...

I’m replying to my own post here because I remembered that, once you take a pension from your super, the fund no longer has to pay tax on...
18/03/2021 - 08:43
I agree. If past preservation age and retired, why have money in super? It’s another level of fees when you could hold the same...

The OP’s.

Your maths is out: $150/mth is substantially *more expensive* that $6K every five years. Over a lifetime, your friend should finish well in...

I had a similar situation once upon a time and it was caused by a filter that stood vertically in the (horizontal) fuel line. Over years it...
