Car buyer from Poland, should I be suspect?

I am currently selling my second car, I have it advertised on some sites and have had several emails from a polish guy telling me he is wants to come from Poland to buy the car.

Im not to keen on the idea really, it seems a little far fetched to me. Whats everyone else's thoughts?

The thing is he did not spend around 700 in travel expenses to get the car back home. This car is only up for 2350

I have just done the maths with cheapest option for everything online it will cost him approx 500 to get from Poland to here and back including fuel and ferry.

I have sent him a message and said im not keen on him buying the car so I guess we will wait and see..

That looks a bit suspect to me.

I thought you were a king not a prince, something's not right there

If he's willing to put the cash in your hand then I can't see an issue?

He has made it clear he is taking the car back. He says he has done it recently for his friend.

This ^

Even if they're from Nigeria, I can't see a problem. So long as you aren't being left out of pocket by any valuables, during the transaction, it doesn't matter who buys it; then end result will remain the same.

As above surely if he is the one traveling over from Poland and paying you then what's the issue?

Sale is a sale doesn't matter who it's to IMO

I would tell him to come over and if he wants the car take him to your bank so he can pay the cash straight in to your account.... Job done

if he pays in cash, check if it's genuine... not long ago i heard about a case in my country where the guy pretended to be a foreigner and had a bag of money with him, the seller was careful. Turned out that out of the 15k the guy had with him, only 1k was genuine and the guy wasn't a foreigner either.

Job done by taking him to the bank then. Sorted.
