Legal advice, used bike, private sale, USA
Dear fellow Ducatisti
I am looking to buy a collectible Grand Prix bike from a private seller in the USA. Because I do not live in the USA, I would be shipping the bike overseas. I will be in a situation where I would probably leave a deposit and have my shipper or representative pay the balance on collection. This would potentially leave me exposed to the seller making off with my deposit, never to be seen again. Does anyone have experience in these matters and/or could anyone offer any advice on how to manage this situation?
Input appreciated. TIA
