I've heard all the warnings about craigslist and western union. I had a guy contact me tonight wondering if he pays me now if i'll hold the tractor. He is from virginia and comes our way quite often. He wants to pay me through western union or if that doesn't work he'll send me a money order. Is there any issue with receiving money through western union. i know you don't want to send someone money through western union for something you buy. i wasn't sure how it would affect me if i picked it up through them. any input is appreciated.

My sister sold he old flute on CL and there was a guy said he would buy it with money order.. he sent it here it was 2 money orders for like 700$ each and she only wanted 200$ for the flute.. she contacted him and he said o his secretary made a mistake to cash them and send him the change... the bank said she could deposit and wait for them to clear before she should send any money back.. she contacted him and told him what bank said and never responded and she didn't hear from him again.
So moral of the story I would be really careful with anything other then cash.
