You aren't going to get many interested parties if you require a $2000 deposit to get any verifiable information about what you want to sell.. You may want to just stick with a NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement.) This could be looked at by some of the viewers here as a scam to make some money.
Sounds like a scam to me. I wouldn't suggest anybody deposit that kind of money.
You can't get scammed by using escrow.com.
We basically don't want our method of making this kind of money getting exposed to everyone or it would just get wiped out like many things have on the net and when you are spending 50K+ you can surely understand. Kind of like the adsense sites you see selling every where now.
I will discuss with the owner about other options but right now he is firm on this.
Once a $2,000 deposit is received we will discuss further. If you don't want to do this then this sale isn't for you. He has told me firmly no further discussions unless a deposit is received either by escrow.com or paypal.
The owner would prefer to meet in person so he will pay for the flight so we can close the deal in person. He will pay the flight and all accomodations.
