Bank Checks can also be easily verified with a few simple steps.
Step 01. Buyer sends the seller a personal check.
Step 02. Seller adds a unique symbol, message or picture on the front of the check when it is deposited into his account.
Step 03. Buyer can send the seller the digital image of the cleared check. The digital image will include the unique symbol, message or picture on the front.
Step 04: The buyer confirms the unique symbol, message or picture. This will confirm that the buyer's check was good and processed by buyer's bank.
Step 05: Seller works with Buyer to ship, pickup or delivery the machine.
When cash is not possible, personal check is the next best option in my opinion.
If any of these steps offend your sensibility, then do not purchase a game that requires shipping (IMO).
