    You won't get a cheque until you send the item.

    And they won't send you the money after they have the item; why would they.

    Get Paypal. They may have some blunders, but not as many as fools who expected someone to keep their word and send them a cheque after they already have the item and no legal contract meaning they have to.

    Ok he is not getting the item...

    It seems abit strange that he was on a local gumtree site when he lives abroad anyway...

    Ill get paypal none the less.

    I presumed that you get the cheque, it clears, then you send the item.
