    How to ship a very expensive jewelry piece and ensure the person pays?

    Someone from another country wants to buy from me a very expensive jewelry piece. I intend to ship it w/ UPS/DHL/FedEx but what is the best way to ensure he pays? Should I do an "escrow account" with an american bank? The person says he wants to guarranty that the item will arrive. Is it dangerous to give him my bank account info for a wire transfer? Thank you for your help

    I would never, in a billion years sell jewelry online. Some of these scammers are experts pure experts. Surprised he has not offered you a fake cashier's check yet. Sell to a gold dealer or broker in your town. Get 3 estimates.

    • Always get paid FIRST. Paypal, bank transfer.... If you get a check or money order, hold shipping for 14 days to be sure it's not fake.
