Once upon a time, I sent a guy a 5 figure check based on his word and his description of an item. I thought it was completely unacceptable when he told me upon receipt of my check "I'm not shipping the item until the check clears.". You've gotta be kidding me.
Fair enough but shipping five figures worth of goods to a stranger would be as risky as writing a five figure check to one, IMO.
