On Saturday I am going to Italy to meet a chap who is interested in something I advertised online. I told him that I could meet Him and that he could pay cash, but the deal would be brokered by A famous auction house, he was fine with this and just to meet and chat about the deal, said I could also see proof of funds before the auction house was engaged, also happy to pay funds into bank prior to releasing the goods from the auction house.
I am now thinking is the scam:-
A) a planned robbery
B) laundering money
C) counterfeit currency
Or just plane and simply face to face meeting
