    Quoted from captainadam_21:

    That doesn't seem right. I don't think there are nearly enough stacks of $1 for it to be $10,000

    Math. Each rubberband'd $1 stack is $500 X 20.

    Quoted from ccotenj:

    figuring a banded pack of 100 bills is about 3/4" thick... so 10,000 would be 100 banded packs of ones...
    going on that, right around 6 and a quarter feet...

    btw, a stack of $10K in hundreds is less than 1/2" tall

    Crap. I zoomed in and it all made sense. That is a lot of lap dances.

    I've only purchased two pins so far but once I get the person's address I check out the area through google maps - street view - to get a feel for the area and their house. My first pin was a CFTBL and I had $3500 cash and I was really nervous until I saw this guys house on Google Maps. The porsche in the drive way eased my feelings too. Very nice guy, I think he's on here somewhere. I also have a CWP but I wouldn't keep my gun on me while I went in someones house. But, I do keep the money in the car in the area I keep my gun in case something goes down ..... and if it does, the person will be introduced very quickly to Mr Gaston. Mr. Gaston is a very fine lad.....he's black and 45 and has this neat green laser pointing out of him.

    ah, cool...

    revise my "pile size" estimate accordingly...

    Quoted from PEN:

    I had a teller ask me if I felt comfortable with that much cash on me. Lets just say I was fine, once I got to my car. I do live in metro Detroit after all. Really though, I was surprised she would comment on it.

    Maybe she was going to "escort" you. I would have said no, just to see where it was heading.

    Quoted from vid1900:

    Not true at all.

    How can a buyer get their money back from gifted funds? I've used that to pay for pins twice. Direct deposit from my bank account to their paypal account, no fees for either of us. I've always been under the impression that if you pay with 'gift' it's the buyer that has no protection and that the transaction can't be reversed.

    I prefer to rob Peter to pay Paul.

    Use a credit card and have the credit card company do the funding/refund with paypal. This could be as long as 90 days. After the cc takes it, Paypal puts a lean / collections on the person that got the gift!

    Quoted from NPO:

    Members First Credit Union of Florida is where I store my money.
    So......why a credit union?

    Most credit unions have nationwide free ATM's and OP was saying they have to pay fees to get cash.

    Me and a buddy drove 10 hours in a 27 foot Penske to buy out an op and we had $19,000 cash on us. My wife thought we should carry it in something. I said hell no. It went in our back pockets. If someone was going to get it, they'd have to roll us for it.

    Quoted from canea:

    I understand the cash and carry part, but it seems like there's a limit. I can see taking $3K to a deal, but more than that seems a little dicey. Anybody done cash deals in excess of $5K? That would be some gangsta stuff.

    #113 5 years ago

    Wawa has free ATM service. No charges from their end at all. Your bank may be a prick but WaWa can't help that. Just and FYI

    Have now acquired 4 machines, all funded differently.

    First paid £50 deposit via paypal for an A13, rest paid in cash on delivery
    Second straight swap for DM, no cash involved
    Third swapped DM + £1400 cash for TSPP
    Finally paid for PotC by bank transfer a month after taking delivery from a friend.

    Next time I'll try and get it FoC or for services rendered ☺

    That's what they want you to believe.

    But fact is that 1000s of people have lost both their item AND their money by believing that implication.

    Quoted from benheck:

    I've always gotten cashier's checks for larger purchases as I felt people didn't trust personal checks, but nowadays people don't trust cashier's checks either.
    I feel silly going into the bank and asking for 5k in hundreds, but maybe it's fairly common?

    ha....haha.....haha,,,,that made me laugh. Have seen the same but never put the pieces together. But you sir have described it simply and perfectly,

    not too sure, why you would feel silly asking for your own money?

    was a little weird once, when my wife and i did the cash thing for a house- the realestate ladies looked kind of strange and each other then me, mid counting process and then said some to the effect they never seen someone do the cash option, so i guess checks are more common?

    I see if you get pulled-over in some states with $5000 in cash, the cops take your money, claiming it to be drug money, and no amount of effort will get it back---unless you're lucky enough to know a high-priced lawyer, of course.

    #119 4 years ago

    I purchased my first pin on Ebay through PayPal... I will most likely do the same for the second.

    #121 4 years ago

    I just ask Centerflank for some money

    #122 4 years ago

    Is there any other way but cash? That's the only form I would take.

    #124 4 years ago

    I'd go with pennies...

    What? So when does the money cross the point from being cash to being drug money.

    I got lucky at a casino and bring home $4k in cash, that's okay but if I have 5k or 8k in cash to buy a pin or a car, It suddenly transforms into drug money and is subject to confiscation.

    Seems impossible.

    Quoted from KloggMonkey:

    Seems impossible.

    It does indeed seem implausible, yet it's true. I continue to be amazed that the average American doesn't even know this is happening, and many who do know just don't care. "Well, they're drug dealers anyway, right?" Maybe...but we have a system in place to determine that, and this ain't it.

    Nobody seems to care unless it's they personally are robbed. I have no problem punishing criminals for crimes they are convicted of in a court of law, but this amounts to state sanctioned extortion. Just amazing.

    Did you see this other thread?

    and a couple of links I shared in that thread yesterday. Read the .pdf, and you'll really be shocked.

    Quoted from pezpunk:

    bring the cash, yes. but do your homework: establish that the person you're visiting has an established presence here. read some of their posting history. if they're an active member of this community, it's unlikely they're a scammer or thief.
    both of my in-person transactions with other pinsiders were very smooth and very friendly. (shout out to habo and hank527 -- top notch dudes)
    we agreed to a price beforehand. i showed up with cash in hand. as long as the machine is as described, haggling at that point is bad form in my opinion. i played each game for a while to make sure everything was kosher ... (and both pinsiders invited me to hang out and play some of their other pins as well) ... and then i handed over the money and we wrapped and loaded the game.

    Thanks buddy!
